SUBIACO blooded three debutants in their last game of 2012 against Claremont on Saturday.
While the 101-point loss was not desirable, the performance of the three first gamers offered a lot for next year and beyond.
Simon Moore and Tim Whyte had 13 possessions each, while ruckman Seva Martin managed 16 hit outs and six disposals.
The trio had spent the entire season in the reserves before they earnt their call up.
Moore played 15 games in the reserves and averaged just under 20 possessions a game to earn his call up.
The 19-year-old is expected to contest the reserves Best and Fairest with fellow recent league debutant Michael Genovese.
Whyte has played 36 reserves games across two seasons to earn his place in the league team.
Seva Martin is a similar story with a couple of years and pre-seasons under his belt before being ready to take the next step.
ABOUT THE PLAYERS:
Another one of Subiaco's young midfielders acquired from Sorrento-Duncraig, Moore dominated the Colts program with Rhys Waters and Craig Hoskins. He made the step up to senior football in 2012 and became one of the reserves most consistent performers. A hardworking midfielder who quietly goes about his business.
A halfback flanker, Whyte is an unassuming footballer whose demeanor on the field reflects his off-field personality. Whyte is a disciplined player that can run with the high half-forward of the opposition.
A natural athlete and possessed with a 6'8" frame, Martin has promised a lot for a long time. As with all big men patience was the key as Martin developed in the twos. With Martin you know you are going to get a wholehearted effort.
