Anytime Fitness - Reserves Preview

Andrew Thomson


The Western Magpies have selected a strong Reserves team for the season opener at Mt Gravatt.

With Val Pope, Brady Allen, Lachlan Woods and Aaron Maricic in the side, the return of Peter Kilroy and inclusion of strong bodied new players in  Nathan Congram, Angus Wyllie  and Lucas Jackson and tall winger Luke Brennan the Pies look a handy Reserves team. Ryan Colclough joins as a half forward and he booted 60 goals last season in Toowoomba to add another forward option for the Pies.

Dual Senior Premiership player Sean Mewing is lining up again and with Bryce Crossley, dual Reserves Best and Fairest winner again the midfield general but with more supports this year the Pies will be confident of starting the season with the four points. Youngsters Sam Hartog, Jeremy deRooy, Tristan Dowdy, Kurt Vine and Tom Roderick will all be better this season after being blooded last year and the returning Sempitake Kwizera, Colts best and fairest several years ago, adds some pace around the packs.

With a strong contingent of players in the side looking to push for senior selection, The Reserves outfit will have a hard edge and plenty of hunger to perform.

Coach Des Lashman will be confident his side will start the season well with several seasoned senior players in the side combined with the talented youngsters leading the way.

A look at the players unavailable for this round gives an indication of the depth at the Pies in 2018
