In what has been a huge week of signing announcements we end the week with another massive additions to our playing list in Tom Baulch.
Baulchy is one of the best young players in the QAFL having been named In last years QAFL team of the year. With Aspley dropping from the VFL Baulchy decided to move home to Noosa and concentrate on his Elite athlete training business. We invited Tom to train with our group over the summer in which the playing group really embraced him. Having played for Sherwood in the QAFL over the past few seasons Tom really found it hard to make the decision to come to Noosa and play against his old club but due to travel and work it ended up being the right decision.
Tom answered a few questions for our supporters on the eve of our 2022 Season.
