WEST V EAGLES TRIAL SQUADS
By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

West Adelaide and Woodville-West Torrens have agreed to play their full-strength line-ups during the first half of Friday night’s trial match at City Mazda Stadium.

Bloods coach Mark Mickan and Eagles mentor Michael Godden, who both worked together previously at Glenelg, will have the majority of their league players take the field from 6.30pm before the main break.

Godden confirmed star recruits Jared Petrenko, Luke Thompson and Fraser Thurlow would all appear for the Eagles while former Magpie Aseri Raikiwasa will don the club’s tri-colours for the first time.

Inexperienced pair Alby Dunstan and Tom Schwarz are expected to be given an opportunity in league company while 2014 SA Under-18 squad member Jack Gaffney will also get a chance to mix it with the big boys.

‘’Alby has played a little bit of league footy but he is in the fight for a key position spot so we will give him a go (in the first half),’’ Godden said.

‘’Tom Schwarz, who didn’t get to play a lot of league footy last year, will get a crack in the midfield and young Jack Gaffney will get a look in the first half as well just to see how he copes with the added pressure.

‘’We’re very keen for the players to have a break from playing against each other in the internal trials which we play so it will be nice to play against an opposition which doesn’t know what we are doing. Hopefully we learn a lot from it.’’

Seeking to rise up the ladder after finishing ninth last year, West has named an equally strong line-up featuring former Crow Jason Porplyzia, and ex-Richmond utility Brad Helbig, both of whom have returned after playing in the AFL.

Impressive NT Thunder recruit Errin Wasley-Black is expected to catch the eye with his impressive left-foot kick while former Bloods bigman Ryan Willits will wear the red and black for the first time since the 2012 Grand Final.

Key forward Daniel Webb, who underwent multiple surgeries this off-season, and utility Andrew Hayes (hamstring) will miss the early trial match with injury but are expected to push for selection in the Bloods’ next hit-out against Sturt on March 20.

Entry to the trial match, which will be played across four 30-minute quarters, is free with the Bloods’ famous barbecue also in operation. West fans will also have the opportunity to purchase memberships and merchandise.

So, how did we look, accepting scores didn't mean anything? Any players emerge from the pack as big improvers?

Anyone go? A report would be appreciated - about 2 pages would be fine.

In a nutshell, first half with majority league players was fairly uninspiring... defence looked solid, but we were terrible moving into the forward line. Great to see Rowntree back in and under packs and Hayes showed glimpses that he could be an elite player this year.

Thurlow needs work... big unit, but looked slow. I'm sure he'll improve.

Take into account it was 37d and it was more about structures... I don't think either side would use their full bag of tricks, particularly given they play each other in Round 1.

The kids in the second half had a bit more energy about them, and basically were just too good for the West team on the park.

Not sure if it's common knowledge, but Byron Sumner has decided to take the year off at this stage - may return late season.

Was told Sumners up with his brother !!
Also we had a couple of players out with minor injuries

Concur at times the first two quarters which was mainly league players . Eagles seemed unable to move the ball from defence to attack . Rowntree we missed him last year he was so far above the rest friday night ball skills wise looked cool as a cucumber in the 37 c heat !!
Agree about the new ruckman . at times the new recruit from port "bobby" looked great as did luke thompson

Second half was mainly seconds players with lewis and ainger playing . Younger players took to the new game plan like ducks to water were fast went direct and kicked goals !!

West kicked crap and flooded in four quarters at half time the seconds side played a mini game warming up


Now another month until another game bugger
