WEST
West Adelaide wingman Nick Homburg will play his first IGA League match of the year against North at Prospect Oval on Sunday.
Struck down by a nagging ankle injury throughout pre-season, Homburg racked up 40 disposals, 10 marks and eight clearances in the Reserves last round.
The hard-running midfielder has been joined in the Bloods’ 23-man squad by Chris Burgess, Tyson Slattery and possible debutant Jack Evans.
Evans, from Flagstaff Hill, has again been listed on the extended interchange bench and must survive the cut before the bounce.
Goalsneak Shannon Green will be sidelined for three weeks after accepting an early guilty plea for engaging in rough conduct with Central’s Caleb Edmead in Round 10.
Half-back Errin Wasley-black will be unavailable due to a hamstring strain.

League
F: Silverlock, Willits, Fielke
HF: Stubbs, Middleton, Haysman
C: Waite, Schiller, Homburg

INT: Favretto, Hill, J. Evans, Slattery, K. Stevens

There would not have been too many Bloods supporters going to Prospect today thinking we could break through for our first win of the year against an in form North on their crooked oval. But win we did despite a dramatic fade-out and a nailbiting finish to the 30min last Q.

When Fielke goaled at the 7 minute mark of the last we went 37 points up but 23 minutes later we scrambled home by 4 pts to win 13.4 to 12.6.

Homburg, Evans and Tuck dropped out of the named 25 and Karpany came in. A great move to give the 18yo Riverland recruit his first game but more of that later.

Westies led pretty much all day. They played tough run on footy and a lot of the risks they took paid off. The physicality of their game might have sapped their energy in the last Q and may have contributed to the overall imbalance in frees paid – 31 to North, 21 to West!!

It was no coincidence that our first win came on the day we kicked our highest score for the year and that we had a player who booted 5 goals, Trent Stubbs. In fact Fielke and Stubbs combined well up forward.

Kaine Stevens was probably best on the ground. His snapped goal in the last Q was a gem. Haysman made a solid contribution and sent us inside 50 many times. Middleton took 9 marks, many up forward and kicked 2. Zac O’Brien was our leading ball getter with 36 and worked well with Favretto and Schmidt to give us a clear advantage in the clearances which was the key to our win. So our 2 'gun' recruits both played key roles in the win.

Burgess looks the goods and will hopefully play out the year. Karpany was a little overawed with the pace of the game, he got caught a few times but hopefully we will see a lot more of this promising young player.

Congratulations to all at the club. A little too long coming but a big boost to our confidence and it would also seem a few of our key players are working out those injuries they have been playing with.

Ressies thumped by North, 17.16 to 6.6

Went to the game expecting a belting as has been the norm this year.
The boys were good today. Finally, we saw some good footy especially from players who have been ordinary.
Have to say, the umpires were disgraceful.
Hopefully we can grab a few more wins before the season is done.

Yes it was a relief. And a great present for my birthday as well. Thanks Bloods. Important that we build on the win today by cleaning up the Bays next week.

A very good win yesterday on ground we never play well on.
We were undermanned, but what impressed me most
was the want for the contest was back for the whole day.
We were the better side for 3 quarters and we went very
defensive in the last qtr, which is typical of a side who hasn't won for
a long time.

Stevens and Hartlett were our best.
O'Brien has improved significantly over the past few weeks
and Stubbs is a good player.

We now need to continue that form against Glenelg

Lachlan I don't think we went negative in the last quarter at all.

The boys spent so much petrol in the first 3qtrs & a bit to gain a 6 goal ascendancy that they were simply out on their feet. Several cramped up plus a couple of others were carrying leg injuries which restricted their ability to run. Considering the late withdrawals of Tuck & Hommy I was really proud of the effort all day.

A really gutsy determined performanceat at a ground where we have only won a handful of games over 3 or 4 decades.

Not much mention has been made of young MURRAY Waite or Mason Middleton. They were both fantastic. If we could get that marking consistency from Mason we would be in a better position. His judgement and airial skills were a treat to watch.

Yeah & that ump with the shiny head needs to read the rule book again. He was deplorable. We had the run of play for most of the day, were first to the ball more than them, yet the free count was 31/21 against. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised we do wear red & black.

My perspective, agree with you reference waite and middleton but would have include young burgess - big kid and can play a fair bit with no signs of panic - agree reference player were stuffed at the end.

Just the first step but a most important one, well done team players and coach for the way you have worked through difficulties and big well done for supporters who have stuck around

It's amazing how despair can turn to hope with just one win.

I'm sure it's not just because we had the win, but more about the courage of the players in how they went about winning.

We've been struck with injury and had Trav Tuck and Nick Homburg as late withdrawals. We were fronting up to a North side in top form, on the dreaded Prospect Oval where wins have always been few and far between. We watched our Reserves, containing a large number of willing, but inexperienced Under 18's, being duly defeated by a lot, despite the honest effort.

Even the most optimistic West supporters weren't expecting a win, but certainly hoping for one.

From the first bounce, it was apparent the players and coaches were expecting a win and all the credit is theirs, but the story within the story is fascinating and it';s that which leads to some optimism. I think several unheralded players had 'breakout' games and some positional changes were very productive.

Take Nick Favretto. Nick's been on the 'fringe'f or a while now, but is still very young. It's fair to say he's had some opportunities he hasn't fully taken, but he's never had several games in a row to consolidate. He perhaps hasn't always been notable in the tackle stats, but has undoubted skill. Sunday he had 8 tackles. Eight. He was great at clearances and it was easily his best game for us.

Wasn't it great to see a West winger run away from the opposition through sheer pace. Murray Waite is young and has only played a few games. He's got huge upside and will work on some aspects of his game, but looks like being a great recruit.

How about Chris Burgess? A 'try-out' player from Flinders Park, Chris has just kept on improving. Often playing as a third tall defender, he's been in and out of the side this year, but had a role on a different type of player yesterday and was terrific.

And how about Mason Middleton. His last year or two have been wrecked by injury, but he was BOG yesterday, clunked everything, kicked 2 goals and saved us in defence (and gave us some scares) in defence in the last quarter.. A long time since our two key forwards kicked 7 between them.

The difficulty of this type of quick post is that players can be left out, so I'll be quick to say every player yesterday was courageous and flew the flag proudly for the club.

If I can be a bit indulgent, our much maligned recruits are starting to shiow their real form. Zac O'Brien had 38 touches and is getting better each week, Trent Stubbs kicked 5 at full forward and looks a really good player and Murray Waite I've already mentioned.

On top of that, our regular players really stood up and led the way with courage for the jumper.

Thank you boys and Mark and the coaches.
