Pre-Season Preview: West Perth
Friday, 26 February 2016
Subiaco will have their first hit-out against opposition on Saturday as West Perth travel to Medibank Stadium.
The Lions will be able to align the new and younger players with the game plan and provide opportunities for the hard workers.
Young forward Jeremy Woodley is one of these players and is expected to line up after an impressive pre-season. Woodley is an exciting goal-kicking prospect from the Kingsley JFC zone.
Long serving midfielder Matt Bogensperger is also likely to get a run after working hard around stoppages and entering the season in career best fitness. Offering opportunities to young players is a key feature of the Lions selection system and the two have a chance to prove themselves on Saturday against the Falcons.
New recruits Mckenzie Lawrence and Ben Sokol are expected to play and will hopefully add grunt to Subiaco's scoring ability. Prized off-season recruits Adam Cockie and Greg Broughton are also in the selection mix.
Due to extreme weather conditions the game will be played in 25 minute quarters with an extended bench.
