With the Christmas break behind us the Subiaco Lions now turn their attention to the 2014 season.

With over 50 players vying for a spot in the Lions first team, the competitive levels will be sky high in an attempt to impress head coach Jarrad Schofield.

The gym and track has been a flurry since the resumption with senior player Rob Forrest acknowledging the importance of a solid pre-season.

  "A good pre-season is super important; especially as you get older because the new crop coming through make you push a bit harder and help maintain a high standard. It’s important for every age group to have a good start and be set up for the year." said Forrest

The Subiaco coaching staff opted for a different method in the 2014 pre-season, starting earlier and spreading the work-load.

"The structure of this pre-season is different; we’ve got a lot more control with our set programs so that when we come in we know what we need to do. The workload has been spread over a longer amount of time for conditioning, so it’s been a really smart pre-season."

Forrest has been a regular fixture in the Subiaco league side since his rise in 2005; playing in three premierships and cementing himself as a top flight midfielder.

The veteran is happy with the squad heading into 2014 with a few of East Coast recruits setting the standard.

"The two Melbourne boys have set the standards with Lachlan Delahunty and Matt Boland having really strong pre-seasons. I’ve been impressed with the additions this off-season."

In regards to the younger regiment, Forry has a couple of hot tips.

"Rhys Waters has had a really strong pre-season, he’s set some really high standards. So has Bill Fetherstonhaugh so they’re the ones to catch at the moment."
