From Kersbrook and Norwood, Brett James returned to South Australia after a three-year stint at Collingwood, where he played 42 AFL games. The small midfielder/defender was a courageous ball getter and he celebrated his return by playing in Adelaide’s 1997 and 1998 AFL premiership teams.
In 1997 he also played with younger brother Roger (who was on Port’s AFL list) in Norwood’s SANFL premiership side. After being delisted at the end of 2000, James returned to a successful SANFL career with Norwood, for whom he made 234 appearances and captained between 2002 and 2006.
