Subiaco players had a chance to impress selectors during an intra-club match on Saturday in hot conditions at Medibank Stadium.It was the squad’s second intra club game in as many weeks and coaching staff were impressed by what was on display just two weeks out from a pre-season game against East Fremantle.
Football Operations manager Luke Sanders says a big pre-season campaign looks to be paying dividends for a number of up and comers.
“The two intra-club games have been of a pretty high standard so the coaches are happy with that. It’s good to see the younger players and the ones who are new to the system really reap the benefits of our 3-4 month program.” Sanders said.
Former Swans Wayde Twomey and Shaun Hildebrandt both performed strongly in each hit out.
New recruit Lachlan Delahunty ran strongly on the wing in both games while a few key players were missing.
Jarrod Kayler-Thomson, Mathew Boland and Frank Stockley were on light duties but are all expected to be available for the March 1st game against East Fremantle.
