Horse Favourite to Play
- Thursday, 10 April 2014
Outridge Medalist Kyal Horsley will play his first WAFL game since the 2011 Grand Final on Saturday when the Lions head to Mandurah to take on Peel Thunder.
The 26-year-old was appointed captain during the pre-season replacing the retired Aidan Parker.
Horsley made a successful return from a knee reconstruction when he lined up for the reserves against Claremont last week.
The former Gold Coast Sun played three quarters and tallied 22 disposals in the side’s crushing win over the Tigers.
Accuracy the key
Subiaco’s forwards failed to find their range last week against Claremont registering 18 goals and 22 behinds.
Chris Deluca is one player who can take his game to the next level if he can get his eye in.
The 19-year-old booted 3 goals and 7 behinds last week.
A spate of injuries has hit the Fremantle Dockers in the first three rounds of 2014.
Chris Mayne, Garrick Ibbotson, Michael Walters, Michael Barlow, Kepler Bradley, Scott Gumbleton, Max Duffy, Tanner Smith and Sam Menagola are all sidelined which ultimately decimates Peel’s senior line up.
On top of that Nat Fyfe remains suspended.
Coach Jarrad Schofield faces a positive dilemma at the selection table.
Subiaco’s midfield has driven the team to their first three wins, but some one will need to make way for the incoming skipper.
Rhett Kerr, Clancy Wheeler , Rhys Blechynden and a number of other players are also pushing for selection.
