This Saturday’s clash with East Fremantle will mark a couple of milestones for Subiaco but skipper Kyal Horsley says the only number he’s worried about this weekend is four.
“Rumba’s two hundredth is a great achievement, its not every day some one reaches that many games, but it’s the four points we are focused on, every team is super close and super competitive so we cant afford to drop any games.” Horsley said.
The 2011 Outridge Medalist is particularly playing down his personal milestone.
He’ll play his 100th WAFL game against East Fremantle on Saturday after making his debut in 2007.
“I haven’t really thought about it to be honest, the club does mean a lot to me so I’m grateful to be able to play for Subiaco but it’s not something I’m going to be celebrating if we lose.” Horsley said.
Prior to being drafted to the Gold Coast Suns at the end of 2011 Horsley had tallied 91 Lions games including the 2008 premiership and 2 games for WA after arriving at the club from Kalgoorlie City Football Club.
Subiaco could be bolstered by some key inclusions: Wayde Twomey and Brett Mahoney are both looking to prove their fitness.
Twomey is in line to play his first game since round 9 while Mahoney looks to play his first game since injuring his calf against Claremont in round 10.
Abe Davey also looks set to return for his first game in two months after overcoming a knee injury.
KICK TO KICK
Brothers Rory and Brock O’brien brought their own football to last week’s 9 point win over West Perth, the pair totaled 65 disposals between them.
On top of that Bradd Dalziell gathered a game high 36 disposals in the win.
The trio are sure to make it a tough day for Subiaco’s mids.
Brett Peake has become East Fremantle’s biggest scoring weapon this season and with 22 goals and only 5 behinds he’s proven he doesn’t need too many opportunities to be damaging.
