The Southern Saints have added some extra firepower to their 2022 playing list, with the inclusion of Kieran Charlton, Tobias Foley and George Read.
Kieran Charlton is a tough defender on the rise.
The 2020 AFLNZ U18 Player of the year is a solid overhead mark and hard to beat in a one on one contest.
In May 2019, Charlton travelled to Melbourne with the U18 NZ side and played a stellar game off the halfback line. His efforts saw him receive the best on ground nod.
Kieran plays for the Eastern Blues in the Canterbury league and this young talent will continue to develop and has the potential to become a regular in the New Zealand senior side in years to come.
George Read is an experienced campaigner, who plays for the University Cougars in the Canterbury competition (CAFL).
His all-round skills and defensive nature will make him the perfect player for the Saints as they look to become the first club to win three Premierships.
Tobias Foley is the Captain of the Christchurch Bulldogs and is the reigning CAFL Best and Fairest winner.
Hard at the footy, Tobi is an asset in any side and will link well with Captain, Andrew Howison.
The Saints will play their historic first match on Christchurch soil on March 6th at QE2 Park in North New Brighton.
