Eagles Legends


Sam Whitehead

Sam departed the Eagles in 2008 to play professionally in Europe.  With the experience of playing in the Ruck for NZ, perhaps he has a shot at making it amongst the whinging, cheating poms - then again, maybe not.

2008
Where to begin with Sam, he has legend written all over him. Player/coacher/manager Sam has done it all and would do it all again given the chance. Sam was also the first and only Eagle to earn higher honours and play for the NZ Falcons.


James Whitehead

 James, an Eagle from the outset in 2003, is a permanent feature as a marking forward for the Eagles of Ashburton.  James hails from Ashburton and his passions outside of aussie rules include performance music and competitive gardening.

2009
James was heavily involved in the management of the Eagles and was a founding member. James can also lay claims to have coached the Eagles to their first win over the Eastern Blues (automatically receives legend status)

Kyle Imeson

On the piss
Kyle, playing in the number 9 guernsey, was a seasoned campaigner until 2007 saw his numerours injuries catch up on him, requiring him to move to the far north to undergo regenerative treatment.
