The club's financial situation saw them unable to scour the country for recruits, instead having to rely on veterans and local youngsters.

The VFL introduced the Page Final Four system for the first time, and after round 6 it looked as if the Redlegs were well on their way to being part of it. The wheels fell off from there and they finished four games out of the finals after a six match losing streak in the middle of the season.

The Round 13 victory over Essendon ended in a protest by the losers which was dismissed.

The Seconds won their premiership.
