The South Australia Australian rules team, often known as the Croweaters, is the representative side of South Australia in the sport of Australian rules football. The team is currently the representative team of the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) and South Australian under-age footballers.

History

Throughout the majority of the team's history its players came from the SANFL. Between 1977-1999 South Australian players playing in leagues around Australia (e.g. the SANFL and the Australian Football League (AFL)) played State of Origin football for the Croweaters. Since 1999 the team reverted to a league representative team for the SANFL. South Australian AFL players were represented in the AFL Hall of Fame Tribute Match against Victoria in 2008.

South Australia's only interstate game of 2013 will be held on 11 May at the City Mazda Stadium (home of SANFL club West Adelaide Bloods) when The Croweaters host the North East Australian Football League (NEAFL) Northern Conference.
