Waters Buoyed by Progress
- Monday, 03 February 2014
Subiaco’s senior squad is in ‘much better’ shape in 2014 compared to the same time last season, according to emerging midfielder Rhys Waters.
Higher training standards, a fitter list and a lower rate of injuries have lead to an all round better feeling amongst the group, says Waters.
“It’s been really good, the boys have gelled really well this year when you compare it to the last couple. You can notice the new personalities that we’ve added and the younger guys are taking a bit more ownership.”
The Lions are desperate to improve on a disappointing 2013 campaign which saw them finish 8th in both the League and Reserves competitions.
“We’re a proud club and to dish up what we did last year was pretty disappointing. We were nowhere near it really which is something that’s been driving us during the summer.” The 20-year-old said.
Coach Jarrad Schofield enters his second year in charge of the Lions and Waters says it’s easy to see evidence of his long-term plan.
“I think that having last year under him, and knowing the things he wants us to do… it’s making the development for this year’s group a lot easier, we all know exactly where Scoey and the other coaches want us to head.” Waters said.
Subiaco’s first competitive hit-out is an intra-club scratch match at Medibank Satdium on Saturday the 8th of February.
