AFTER finishing on top of the ladder, Geelong was knocked out of the premiership race by Richmond on Friday night. The loss has divided Cats fans, with many taking aim at Chris Scott for some of his questionable coaching decisions during the 2019 finals campaign. But is their frustration justified?
South Australia is full of talented sportspeople, each of them with their own unique stories to tell – however, so many of those stories remain untold.
One on One Sports SA is here to change that.
The mandate of One on One Sports SA is simple: to provide sports lovers with raw, unfiltered, and engaging storytelling featuring South Australia’s best and brightest sportspeople.
Simply put: we want to explore what makes our favourite athletes tick, either side of the white line.
We’re committed to telling athletes’ stories in a unique way, in a long-form Q&A format where the athlete can speak openly and honestly, without having to stick to the typical cliched responses that are becoming all too common today.
The number one aim of our experienced, enthusiastic, sports-mad team is to bring you a completely different insight into your favourite SA personalities, both past and present, to help you get to know them just that little bit more.
If you have a SA sportsperson you want us to go One on One with, get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
