The Super Kings may have had a rough couple of years, but after a massive recruiting spree they look set to be back in business in 2021/22

After missing out on finals by two games and relegation by one game, Box Hill North went out and brought in 15 players over the offseason.

They also lost a couple of players, including three regulars in their first XI last season in Shantanu Bhaiya, Thilina Rajakaruna and Rashimal Mendis to rivals Blackburn North.

Speaking to bhrdca.com.au, president Steve Carusi said that whilst he knew it was a process, he knew that eventually the pieces would fall into place.

“​​We had set plans for the last three years…and it fell into place and then one thing led to another,” Carusi said.

He said that if they didn’t get all these recruits, especially with the losses they had, the Super Kings would be in a bit more trouble.

“As clubs would tell you, you’ll lose half a dozen, and if you don’t recruit half a dozen you’re going to have more pressure.

“This year if we didn’t recruit those players, we would’ve been in trouble for a little while anyway.

He also mentioned the new rooms at Elgar Park were also key to attracting these new players.

“How good the rooms can be and how good they can be for a club; besides the headache I get as President with all the extra responsibility…

“You’ve got rooms, it’s easy to attract people.”

One of their new signings is ex-Sri Lankan International Kaushal Silva, signing on after a season in the ECA with Donvale.

Carusi said the key to his signing was how much he wanted to develop juniors, with him playing an extra.

“The big tick was he’s all about homegrown, he’s all about juniors, he’s all about developing the game and that’s what we need, that gave me a lot of excitement.

“It was what he needed because it was what he was after and it all came together. Him playing for us is a bonus”.

Carusi is also confident that all their teams will make finals this year, including the ones who have been close in recent years.

“I’d be very surprised if we don’t make finals in all grades.

“We usually make finals in all grades, except our ones are always there abouts, they missed out the last few years, the few years before that we unfortunately lost a couple of grand finals.”
