Re­serves plot path to first fi­nals

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - BULLS SEASON PREVIEW -

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.
