Up the heat

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Wfl Finals -

The good news is the only op­tion left for the War­riors in the fi­nals is to take the game on, and we just might see the Stawell we got to know from last year’s fi­nal se­ries re-emerge.

Stawell’s team lead­ers will be es­sen­tial in get­ting this right.

This all stems from Eckel in his di­rec­tion, per­sonal game and lead­er­ship.

If he man­ages to get his hands on the ball in space, we could see the run and carry of oth­ers such Cam Kim­ber, Jamie Bach, Jesse Galea­portelli and tal­ented Sean Man­tell.

A few play­ers have con­sis­tently flown the flag this year, such as David An­drivon, who has been a strong and cre­ative for­ward and James De­lahunty, when avail­able, has been im­por­tant.

Jack­son Dark con­tin­ues to be Stawell’s pri­mary de­fen­sive player and Jack Beaton is good in the air, while in at­tack the side has nu­mer­ous tar­gets it needs to ex­ploit.

These in­clude Julian Carr, high-pro­file Travis Gra­ham and Toohey Medal­list and vet­eran Brent Tuckey.

In sum­mary, the War­riors have to find some­thing they haven’t had all year – a win­ning men­tal­ity – to push any fur­ther than the first week of the fi­nals.

They have the team, but have they the will? Stawell Foot­ball & Net­ball Club ‘Callawadda Es­tate’ War­riors
