Reserves plot path to first finals
PLENTY of keen new faces fill the ranks of the Harvey Bulls reserves team as they kick off their 2018 campaign to contest their first ever finals series.
Coach Craig Sellick said the side had its biggest preseason yet with plenty of new players joining the reserves.
“Lots of new faces,” Sellick said.
“Got a lot of players that used to play that have come back.
“There’s a very positive feeling around the club.”
Sellick said training had focussed on getting more run into the players’ legs and developing a more direct football style.
“It’s been sharper training, and everyone’s really keen, probably the keenest group I’ve seen since I’ve been here,” he said.
Sellick said there had been a lot more done in this year’s preseason outside of football to bring the team together.
“We’re making it a close-knit family,” he said.
Sellick said the reserves had come close to the finals last year playing well towards the end of the season, only missing out on finals by a few points.
Sellick said the side had suffered from injury issues last year but this year the team was looking in top form and would be fighting hard to make their first finals appearance.
“There should be no excuses this year, we’re injury free, got good numbers, we should get to the finals this year,” he said.
