WEST V EAGLES TRIAL SQUADS

By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

West Adelaide and Woodville-West Torrens have agreed to play their full-strength line-ups during the first half of Friday night’s trial match at City Mazda Stadium.

Bloods coach Mark Mickan and Eagles mentor Michael Godden, who both worked together previously at Glenelg, will have the majority of their league players take the field from 6.30pm before the main break.

Godden confirmed star recruits Jared Petrenko, Luke Thompson and Fraser Thurlow would all appear for the Eagles while former Magpie Aseri Raikiwasa will don the club’s tri-colours for the first time.

Inexperienced pair Alby Dunstan and Tom Schwarz are expected to be given an opportunity in league company while 2014 SA Under-18 squad member Jack Gaffney will also get a chance to mix it with the big boys.

‘’Alby has played a little bit of league footy but he is in the fight for a key position spot so we will give him a go (in the first half),’’ Godden said.

‘’Tom Schwarz, who didn’t get to play a lot of league footy last year, will get a crack in the midfield and young Jack Gaffney will get a look in the first half as well just to see how he copes with the added pressure.

‘’We’re very keen for the players to have a break from playing against each other in the internal trials which we play so it will be nice to play against an opposition which doesn’t know what we are doing. Hopefully we learn a lot from it.’’

Seeking to rise up the ladder after finishing ninth last year, West has named an equally strong line-up featuring former Crow Jason Porplyzia, and ex-Richmond utility Brad Helbig, both of whom have returned after playing in the AFL.

Impressive NT Thunder recruit Errin Wasley-Black is expected to catch the eye with his impressive left-foot kick while former Bloods bigman Ryan Willits will wear the red and black for the first time since the 2012 Grand Final.

Key forward Daniel Webb, who underwent multiple surgeries this off-season, and utility Andrew Hayes (hamstring) will miss the early trial match with injury but are expected to push for selection in the Bloods’ next hit-out against Sturt on March 20.

Entry to the trial match, which will be played across four 30-minute quarters, is free with the Bloods’ famous barbecue also in operation. West fans will also have the opportunity to purchase memberships and merchandise.

I wouldn't read too much into the result in a trial game , gotta be optimistic for the year ahead now that Rubbers has had a full pre-season with the squad compared to what he got last year

The first half score was 4.4 to our 1.8.  The sides were new fir the second half.

I felt positive after the game between the two 'better' teams that played the first half.  Several didn't play, including Tuck, Silverlock, Hartlett, Caire, etc, while Milne and Willits played in the second half.

First, we probably found two new players. Young Will Snelling played in the middle and is just a natural, while Errin Wasley-Black showed enough to think he'll be a league player.

Chris Schmidt played half-back and must have had 25 possessions in a half, while just knowing where to go and how to organise the defence.  I was so pleased with Tom Keough, who looked terrific in his first serious hitout after his operation. Brad Helbig played deep defence to allow us to give some less experienced players a run in the middle, while Shannon Green adds so much to the forward line.  Nick Homburg also impressed.

We had a heap of the footy, over-used it a fair bit and our skills still need improvement, but I thought we looked much more solid than last year, due to the presence of experienced players such as Porps and Helbig.

Jesse Watchman and Phil Hopton bith played well, but we need at least one of Mason Middleton or Justin Hardy to be up forward.  I believe tjey're not too far off now.

In other news, Ben Klemke has arrived and looks in good nick and is about 194cms.

merrick, have faith, mate.  It's a half a game trial match in February with 19 players not playing.

Yes I know it was only a trial game and we had a lot missing but still disappointing to only have 1 goal at halftime! Constantly the Eagles defence rebounded and took the ball cleanly down to their forward line.

Apart from who you mentioned Lee, I thought Aaron Anderson, Hugh Haysman and Aaron Francis played well in the second half and will push for some senior games this year.

I look forward to our next trial and hopefully a big improvement.

I thought we could purchase memberships last night, nothing was available to do this!

Good post, beaglex.

I agree that 1 goal was disappointing. Our goalkicking is still a worry.

Also agree about the 2 Aarons and Hugh and I also thought Ollie Johnson looked back to his old self after a pre-season. Loved Lachie Dodds-watson from the 18's also, good skills, good decisions and good orange boots Very Happy

I'll pass on your comment about the memberships.

Nice article on Errin Wasley-Black on the website.

I think our new IT man, Scott (a Westies supporter), is making some good improvements, with plenty to come.

They played a couple of 25 minute halves in a scratch match tonight.

Very happy with it. For posters' info, Ryan Willits, Kaine Stevens, Brad Helbig and many others were excellent.

Errin Wasley-Black was again good, while newcomer Joe Cua looked very promising.

Time for him to get out of the gym and actually do what he is paid for.... Płay football. I'm would imagine he would be one of the highest paid players and so far he he given us very little.

You can throw in his mate Hayes too.
Hopefully the both of them play some good footy for us this year.
I don't think it will happen. Hayes's hamstrings are worse than Michael Clarke's!!!!

Correct about Shane.

Travis played in the trial.

I must say I was very heartened by the trial. The addition of experienced players in Porplyzia, Helbig and Willits gives us a much more solid look.

New recruits Wasley-Black and Cua look well up to league standard and Will Snelling looks a natural (not the second coming, but certainly a league player).

We do need a key forward to get fit, though.

Shane would of been playing another than the normal politics around football clubs. I would let him just turn up on game day for to get rid of hardy. hopefully kicks a bag this year and proves me wrong though.

The club made every effort to have Shane play with us, both ladt year and this.

It was Shane's decision entirely not to play SANFL and one we understand after such a long and proud AFL and SANFL record.

COACH’S CORNER – MARK MICKAN
By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

It’s no secret West Adelaide was one of the major disappointments in season 2014.

Coming off a Grand Final in 2012 and a Preliminary Final in 2013, the Bloods slumped to ninth at the end of the minor round, winning just six matches.

As a result, West coach Mark Mickan – preparing for his second season at the helm – vowed to have his side ready for action in 2015.

Already, the Bloods have tackled Woodville-West Torrens in two trial matches, which sandwiched the Christmas break.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, Mickan reveals his men have been working on their defensive action throughout the pre-season.

The former Glenelg mentor also provides an update on star recruit Jason Porplyzia as well as fellow signings Brad Helbig, Errin Wasley-Black and the returning Ryan Willits.

Mickan also chats about the health of injured trio Daniel Webb, Justin Hardy and Andrew Hayes, revealing the latter is ready for action after a hamstring strain.
