Adelaide Roller Derby presents ‘Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’, a monster double feature of two roller derby bouts of excitement for the price of one on Saturday, November 2, at the Adelaide Showground.
All hell will break loose when the Adeladies take on the Darwin Roller Girls in the first bout of the day. These two fiery teams first clashed in Darwin in 2012 with the Adeladies skating away with the win. Darwin are hell-bent on vengeance and will unleash eight-wheeled fire and brimstone in their quest for victory, however the Adeladies may prove to be too hot to handle.
In bout two our heroes sally forth against a new foe, the Convict City Rollers. Will Convict City triumph and lay claim to our free-settled shores or will the Adeladies prove victorious and send them to Davey Jones’ Locker?
Both bouts are guaranteed to be action packed, fast paced, hard-hitting fun, so get your skates on and head trackside for your derby fix!

The Sun State ‘Swarm’ came into the bout against the ADRD ‘Adeladies’ as red hot favorites, and despite an early lead from the Adeladies, showed why they are the only league in Australia to give VRDL a run for their money.
Final score: SSRG 244, ADRD 87.
In a bout chock-full of fierce, strong packs and more powerjams than you can poke a stick at, the Phantoms ultimately triumphed over their arch-rivals the Tornadoes.
Final score: Phantoms 187, Tornadoes 147.
Thank you DJ WiPod for the funky soundtrack!

Just when you thought the Adelaide Roller Derby 2013 season was dead and buried, the Adeladies rise up to take on the Sun State Swarm in what will truly be a ‘SKATE OR DIE’ event at the Adelaide Showground on Saturday October 12.
The Adeladies last played the Sun State Roller Girls at the 2010 Great Southern Slam. Sun State won that bout and are currently ranked second in Australia.
Joining the ranks of the rolling undead are Adelaide teams Tornadoes and Phantoms, battling it out in the first bout of the day.
Both bouts are guaranteed to be a spectacular clash of braaaaaaaains and brawn.
