Simply the best!

Southern Tasmania is the nation's best football factory a new study has found. A story in the Mercury 4/3/2013 highlights the fact that more top-flight footballers are produced here per capita than anywhere else in the country.

Ian Callinan, Colin Garland, Jack Riewoldt, Mitch Robinson, Aaron Joseph, Jeremy Howe, Aaron Cornelius, Aaron Hall, Josh Green, Liam Jones, Ryan Harwood, Marcus Davies, Sam Darley, Andrew Phillips and Jake Gillbee are presently playing and a number are waiting in the wings - Henry Schade, Jimmy Webster, George Burbury and Sam Siggins.more
