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.

Thanks for the update. Three very important players who need to stay on the
park for the whole year if we are to be successful
