It was a different kind of season for the As in 2018. They had to deal with a new coach, a new formation and a new way of playing the game through the coaches’ eyes. We had some new faces join the As, Bagus and Jack, both who showed why they deserved to be there. Our International Superstar Diego and some old faces came back to the club to re-join the ranks of the team, Thomas, Dan O’Raw and Little Dan. Each player showed great commitment to the season, at training, during match days and off the field also. The boys’ camaraderie is what made us a great team. It was a very successful season for the As, being undefeated and having won both the Minor and Major Premierships in our Inaugural year. It made it an even more memorable one having played our old umbrella club, Balmain in the Grand Final and defeating them 5-0.
