Saints documentary released

A DOCUMENTARY recounting St Mary’s stunning turnaround to win the 2019 GFL premiership has been released.

Saints Sox covers their poor start to the season, how they used the Boston Red Sox unlikely Major League Baseball World Series win in 2004 as motivation, and their barnstorming run through the finals, which culminated in snapping a run of three consecutive grand final losses.

The brainchild of Ben Raimondo, it features interviews with co-coaches Travis Robertson and Glenn Keast, president Jock McMahon, football boss Scott Hosking, club legend Ray Digby, and several players, including captain Jacob Welsh and grand final hero Nick Connors, who kicked the match-winning goal with only seconds remaining.

It is worth watching just for the prophetic words from Robertson on what they expected of Connors on grand final day.
