THE Riverland Superdogs
AFL Masters Football Club is
getting set for the 2017 season
and looking for more players
to get involved.
The club started over 30
years ago playing in the over
35s competition based in
Adelaide, which was called
‘sandshoe football’ and is now
a member of the AFL Masters
Australian Football – South
Australian division based in
The 15 teams involved
are based mainly in and
around Adelaide and games
are played fortnightly on
a Sunday afternoon, with
a combination of home and
The Superdogs’ home
ground is Lyrup Oval where
they meet every Wednesday
from 6.30pm for a training
session followed by drinks
and gourmet barbecue for tea
for a nominal fee.
Over the years players have
joined in the fun with little or
no football experience, with
the aim being to include all
players at training and on
For the away games a bus is
organised to travel as a group
to Adelaide for a nominal fee
to cover fuel and bus hire.
According to Superdogs
club president Rob Romeo,
the game is played with an
emphasis on “footy for fun”,
with modified rules to give
the players with the ball time
for disposal and minimal con-
tact to reduce the potential of
Mr Romeo says there is no
ladder or points system for
winning, just the enjoyment
of playing the game amongst
players from all different plac-
es and with all different abili-
ties, with the added possibility
that you may end up playing
against an ex AFL or SANFL
Around October, a national
carnival is played in a differ-
ent state each year and against
teams from all other states.
According to Mr Romeo,
South Australia puts a lot of
emphasis on participating in
the carnival and would like to
increase the number of teams
so there is no selection crite-
“All you need to do is nom-
inate and make yourself avail-
able and you are in the team,”
“You get to play in your age
group and the number of play-
ers available will determine
which age groups are nomi-
nated for the carnival.”

Riverland Triathlon Club member and 2017
Renmark Triathlon participant Ruth Strout said the
conditions on Sunday made for great racing.
“It was a really picture perfect day with beautiful
conditions,” she said.
“The current wasn’t too fast for the swim and the
cycling route around Renmark was really well laid
out. The run was also well set up.”
Strout said that while participation numbers
seemed slightly down, a lot of first timers took part.
“The numbers seemed slightly lower than usual,
but there was lots of new faces giving triathlon a go

great time,” she said.
“There was lots of cheering and yelling going
