5 Lions picked for Nationals
Wednesday, 25 May 2016
Subiaco will have five representatives at the upcoming State Nationals with Wil Hickmott, Xavier Peacock and Tristan Hobley selected for the 16’s & Martin Kaker and Jacob Miller for the 18’s.
The Subi youngsters have been training with the best talent in the state for the Nationals in June and were selected in the final squad last night.
Hickmott is a versatile young player and has been used on the wing at half back or half forward. Xavier Peacock is a well-built developing ruckman and Tristan Hobley is a skillful midfielder/halfback.
For the 18’s Jacob Miller hails from Kalgoorlie and is a well built inside midfielder. Miller leads the Colts in disposals this year with an average of 20.4 per game.
Martin Kaker is a 195cm utility and has been used predominantly in the half forward line for the colts this year.
SFC Player Development Officer Neil Arnold is excited at the opportunity that's been presented to the players.
“Selection to participate in National Championships gives these players an excellent opportunity to pit their skills against the best in Australia,
“Everyone at Subiaco wishes you these young men the best of luck in the carnival, which will undoubtedly be a rewarding experience for each of them.” Said Arnold
Subiaco’s home ground Medibank Stadium will host the first game of the 18’s State Nationals on June 5 when WA takes on Vic Country.
