BIG NAMES ADDED TO PIES RESERVES
The Pies Reserves again look very strong for their round two clash with Broadbeach at McCarthy Homes Oval at Chelmer on Saturday with the addition of players with plenty of senior experience coming into the side.
Players with senior experience added to the team are Rory Johnson, Chris Hunt, Riley Easton, Brodie Easton, Rohan Smith and Sean McEvoy. Monty Vine also comes in at full forward and with the likes of Brady Allen, Val Pope, Lachlan Woods and Bryce Crossley in the team coach Des Lashman has on paper at least one of the best Pies Reserves team for many years.
But as last week showed, matches are not won with magnets on the board and the Pies will need to have a lift in intensity to match a Cats team that had a strong win over 2017 Reserves Premiers Morningside last week.
So Lashman will ask for a positive attitude and lift in effort from all his players, something that was absent after quarter time last week.
With the depth of the Pies much better this year a number of players were left out of the side, with several unlucky to miss out.
The Pies cannot leave it up to the experienced players to carry the day and the likes of youngsters Tristan Dowdy, Sam Hartog, Sam DeNys, Luke Brennan, Matt Mazarolle, Jeremy DeRooy and Riley Easton must all be busy for a full four quarters.
Broadbeach will be confident after last week so the Pies will need to bring their A game if they are to pocket the four points.
