Ready to kick goals in 2018

AUSSIE RULES: The South Burnett Saints women's and men's teams started their preparations for the 2018 season on Thursday night.

The men's team achieved a lot of firsts this year, defeating some teams for the first time and being undefeated at home.

However the season ended on a disappointing note, with the team losing by two points in the finals.

The team next season will be largely made up of the same players who are motivated to prove themselves and men's side coach Paul Pressnell believes they have what it takes.

"We want to improve on last season and show our true potential,” he said.

"I think they can go all the way.”

There will be a lot of changes in the women's team in 2018, with some of their key players moving on and younger players coming through.

The women's team had their best season in 2017 making the finals and player Natalie Fenton said they were looking to work together and improve next year.

"We are always welcoming new players, it is such a great environment to be involved in,” she said.

For the first month, pre- season training will involve running and swimming to rebuild the players' fitness while the ball will stay in the training bag.
