Fit Bulls ready to charge

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - BULLS SEASON PREVIEW - David Charlesworth

HAR­VEY Bulls have been putting in their big­gest pre­sea­son yet to get a leg up on the op­po­si­tion be­fore the sea­son kicks off on April 14.

League coach Paul Fim­mano said pre­sea­son train­ing had seen big num­bers at the club, with a fo­cus on fit­ness and ball skills to en­sure a strong start to the sea­son.

“We wanted to be fit­ter early on so we could have a re­ally good start to the whole sea­son,” he said.

“We had 30 to 40 play­ers which was re­ally good for a town like us.”

For­mer Bulls Michael Robin­son and Reece Blechyn­den will be mak­ing a re­turn to the side this year, com­ing from the Lower South West and Gold­fields leagues.

Ryan Mckin­lay and Eli Smith will also be join­ing the Bulls, both com­ing over from Har­vey-Brunswick-Leschenault.

“We should have a re­ally strong team,” Fim­mano said.

Lead­ing the team will be co-cap­tains Bren­don Jones and Ryan Moony.

The Bulls made it through to the third round of the fi­nals last sea­son, nar­rowly miss­ing out by five points to the even­tual pre­miers, Bun­bury.

“The goal will be to fin­ish in the top three and then we’ll take it from there,” Fim­mano said.

Har­vey Bulls speed­ster Ja­cob Pickett boots the ball up­field.

Bren­don Jones will be lead­ing the side this sea­son as co-cap­tain.

For­mer Bull Reece Blechyn­den, right, will be re­turn­ing to the club this sea­son com­ing from Kal­go­or­lie.
