Sturt 2002 SANFL Premiers

In an unbelievable boilover Sturt shocked Central Districts 13. 14 (92) to 6. 9 (45).

The Doggies who were looking for their third straight Premiership on the trot were comprehensibly smashed by the Double Blues who faced extinction numerous times throughout the 80s and 90s with wooden spoons galore before being resurrected by Phil Carman and then Brenton Phillips to win their first flag in 26 years.

Ex and current AFL players Simon Feast, Martin Mattner, Brodie Atkinson, Damien Squire, Barnaby French, Toby Thurstans, Matthew Powell, Ben Nelson and Matthew Dent along with this years dual Magarey Medallists Jade Sheedy and Tim Weatherald led the way for Sturt in a thoroughly deserved victory.

Ex-Crow Matthew Powell won the Jack Oatey Medal for best afield.

"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."

WAFL sucks Hard !!!! How the hell does the WAFL expect to pull in the crowds when the amateur leagues pays more $$$ and has better players , umpires and in most cases bigger crowds !!!!!!!!!
