Hope the cats get caught over the cap and go broke.

Im a kiwi and i must say this is a big signing for you guys!

Wow, i mean great signing Wildcats but i would never have thought Kay would sign with the Cats. He looked at home with the Hawks.

Mark good replacement for Matty Knight! πŸ‘

Great....just what we need...another big man who hovers around the 3 point line

Big addition to the team. Very happy with this signing.

Watch out league were on the prowl

Fantastic signing, when we lost Matty we were too small, Brandt and Kay, in the 4 and 5 spot is exciting.

Great signing. Will fill the big void left by Matty Knight

At least he resisted the crowd joining the Brisbane Boomers. !!!!

Great signing cats, need more shooters now 😊

Great signing. Kay’s best basketball is ahead of him too. Will thrive in Perth!

Dave Cruden do we know if this guy is any good? Who does he force out?

He’s a good signing for us. Hopefully him and Brandt will Work well together

I was so hoping for this!!! Great replacement for Matty Knight πŸ˜€

At last, some more Low Post punch for the cats which is what they've been lacking!!! looking forward to next season already.

Awesome signing!! Just what the Wildcats needed πŸ’ͺ

Great pick up, loved his aggression at the comm games

Luke Tucker real good signing. Heard we are getting norton too

Woo Hoo welcome to the team Nick. Just what the Wildcat's needed!! So happy!!

Awesome, congrats Wildcats and welcome to the Jungle Nick Kay. Looking forward to next season already #redarmy

Wow, I thinks that’s the big one from this free agency.

Awesome signing by the Wildcats! Join the Red Army today πŸ‘πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ€

Ryan, no Staniforth but not a bad signing.

Finally flexing some muscle in the free agency period

Who isn’t coming back? Someone has to make room for him?

I feel we let one slip with Gliddon moving from the Taipans to the Bullets

I always believed in you, Rhys Vague! Told you, Nathan Freind. He’s a champion. πŸ’ͺ🏻

Great news for Rhys and hopefully he will carve out a solid career with the Wildcats. No doubt a big reason behind his signing is because front office acknowledges it needs more WA talent on the roster and develop a stronger relationship with basketball in WA. For such a proud and successful organisation as the Wildcats are, it was interesting to note in recent times that Greg Hire was ONLY the fourth West Aussie to play 200 NBL games for the club.

I bet the details of his contract were very...wait for it...vague!

Amanda-Lee Mika your coffee mate...that 1 time.

Nicole your boy got a spot on the roster

Congratulations Rhys...your work has paid off!!

I hope there is some big name signings to follow this. Hardly getting me jumping out of my chair with excitement

Congratulations Rhys ! πŸŽ‰πŸ€ Blue Shoes ! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Well done Rhys. Always knew you were destined for great things 😊.

So well deserved πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜€

Simon Rule. FYI. Congrats Rhys.

Good for you Rhys. Take this opportunity to shine. Bruce you must be so very proud of your boys achievements

Good luck to him, but he has a fair way to go....

Simo Arabi our signings better get better than this or i want my membership refunded!!

😒😒😒.

Congratulations Rhys. Fantastic news.

Congratulations Rhys, fantastic news.

Matt Birch championship here we come πŸ˜‚

Michelle Price... you must be proud πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Bring in Cody Ellis, get back our WA boys ;)

Surely Tom Jervis gets spoken too.

Awesome! Congrats Rhys!

Adelaide Zoo

Look who paid us a visit today... His Royal Highness The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex KG GCVO. πŸ‘‘

In Australia to promote The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, His Royal Highness stopped by Adelaide Zoo to name some of our newest arrivals, two female Koalas.

Named Sophie and Louise in honour of His Royal Highness' wife and daughter, the girls were given a very royal welcome complete with many adoring fans and some extra tasty gum leaves.

Sophie and Louise are having a wild time checking out their new home in our Australian natives area, so swing by and say hi! 🐨🐨
