Back to the future: Southby returns to the Saints

2021 Golden Boot winner, James Southby will be part of the Southern Saints line up for the 2022 AFL New Zealand Premiership.

Southby started his Premiership career with the Saints in 2019, before switching to the Central Giants in 2021, where he was the competitions leading goal kicker and Premiership winner.

James has kicked 45 goals in 3 seasons playing in the Premiership and you can expect him to be even stronger in 2022, where he will have home ground advantage during the Canterbury games.

James plays for the Mid Canterbury Eagles in the Canterbury AFL and is a strong mark who has an accurate boot in front of goal.
