  • Home win for Barbarians

    “It was a chance for us to practice our moves and work on plays rather than just running through people.
    “Everyone played pretty well; Matt Bradbery, Nikaya Herlihy-Graham and Brandon Ablett – on his birthday - were probably among the best.”
    The Barbarians have just one game left – a Roxby Downs home game against the Port Augusta Goannas – on July 29, before the grand final on August 12.
    In a coup for our town, Roxby Downs will also host the grand final match, which Starkey also hopes will include a game for the local ladies’ side.
    “We’re definitely going to put them out on July 29 and also on the grand final day, which will be great,” he said.
    And with the Goannas currently the biggest threat to the Barbarians, Starkey is being careful not to be complacent heading into the match next week.
    “If Port Augusta has all their players, anything can happen,” he said.
