This team, or those members of this list that are selected to play in the inaugural EITFL Adelaide Hornets side has a distinct South Australian 'feel' about it.

A (deliberate) large majority of preferred players coming from the two AFL sides, the 1997 Premiers ADELAIDE CROWS, and '97 rookies PORT ADELAIDE (PORT POWER), and yet more South Australians called home from sides like Carlton (Kernahan, Bradley), Essendon (Cockatoo-Collins) or Hawthorn (Holland).

The captaincy will hopefully be filled by the 1997 AFL winning Captain, Crows Midfielder Mark Bickley, with the Vice-Captaincy given to Port Adelaide Full Forward, Scotty Cummins.

The Hornets will have draft picks 3,11,22.   number One draft pick will be the final quarter freak Darren Jarman, second will be the captain Mark Bickley, and the third confirmed draft pick will be either Shaun Rehn, who will reach full fitness next year after two major knee surgeties, or newcomer Aaron Keating, who played a pivotal part in the Crows celebrations.
