Lions Sharpen Teeth
- Thursday, 06 March 2014
Subiaco is set to welcome back some big names for it’s second pre-season hit-out with round 1 looming just a fortnight away.
After a solid pre-season campaign VFL recruit Matt Boland will line up for the Lions.
Recruited for his ability around goals, fans can expect the hard working forward to create plenty of contests and provide excellent forward pressure.
Midfielders Chris Phelan and Jarrod Kayler-Thomson are both expected to return to the senior side after proving their fitness in the reserves last week.
On a positive note for the Lions Andrew McDougall’s a knee injury isn’t as severe as first thought. The ruckman is expected back playing in four to six weeks.
West Perth is coming off an ugly 37-point-win against East Perth in their first pre-season hit out.
The reigning premiers, who were missing some of their stars, held an extremely depleted East Perth outfit to just one goal and five behinds at Leederville oval last week.
