Aussie Rules, it hurts and humbles.

For every winner, a loser. 

For every triumph, a defeat.

South claimed the honour of Champions in 2014 while North fell short.

West battled and battled while Central struggled on the bottom of the ladder. 

But that’s in the past, that’s in 2014 and on the horizon awaits the 2015 season.

A new opportunity; for redemption, for glory, for immortality.

The brave will take to field as warriors to battle; shoulder-to-shoulder, face-to-face.

With the premiership cup on the line, every point is vital, every tackle is crucial and every win is essential.

South will be the footballing juggernaut to overthrow.

The reigning premiers look impressive in every aspect of the game and will not take kindly to first round opponent, Central.

The Bulldogs of the North will look to topple the South giant and claim what’s theirs as they kick off their season against West.

The Robins shall look toward a productive season while Central looks to ascend the daunting ladder and claim some scalps on the way.

But there can only be one champion in September.

One team that holds the cup, one team that immortalises their name as 2015 AFL Broken Hill A-Grade Champions.

That hunger, that undying desire to hoist the trophy above their head will see teams push limits, break thresholds, fight, run, tackle, defend, attack, score and celebrate.

As the new season dawns, stars will rise, teams will captivate, grounds will rock, new challenges will emerge and new battles will be fought, in the name of glory, in the name of honour, in the name of football.

It’s the game we love, the game we live for.

Prepare to witness every challenge, every cheer, every minute, every second of the best game.

Our game! 

Mick Malthouse once said:

‘The meek may inherit the earth - but they will never win games of football.’

The new season awaits.
