Star Signing - Madison Bennett

The dual South Adelaide premiership player will offer the Tigers plenty of experience and zip around the packs after landing at Brighton Road. The 22-year-old also boasts valuable pace which should prove an asset for the defending premier in 2022.

South recruit Madison Bennett in action against Glenelg.

One to Watch - Piper Window

Officials at Tigerland are eagerly awaiting the continued progression of Piper Window, who showed tremendous promise playing in the Bays’ inaugural Women’s premiership last year. A member of the SA U18 Girls Academy, the grand daughter of Magarey Medallist Gary Window has pace and reads the play nicely.
