Central V Glenelg Trial
Glenelg v Centrals Trial
Saturday March 21 at Playford Alive
Glenelg travelled to Playford Alive Oval last Saturday to take on Central Districts. With the season fast approaching it was an opportunity for the players to work on and develop the team structures they have been practising over the pre-season and to find some form as the group battle for spots in the League side for round 1.
The game started with both sides using quick ball movement to their advantage in what was a lively and entertaining first quarter. Aaron Joseph set the tone for the Bays with a fierce attack on the ball and Willie Rioli showed flashes of brilliance early. Jonty Scharenberg played his first league trial as a 16 year old and the club also unveiled new recruits Jarrhan Jacky, Lonnie Hampton and Ben Nason for their first taste of league football in the yellow and black.
The second quarter saw Centrals gain control in the middle of the ground and their skilful use of the ball made it difficult for Glenelg to wrestle back possession. Players failed to stick with the structures at times which played into the hands of the opposition and saw the Glenelg players having to chase for much of the quarter. Josh Miller and Tom Carter were sharing the ruck duties and Lachy Button played a half in the forward line offering support to Josh Scott, Clint Alleway and Josh Trembath. Josh is coming off a strong pre-season and is moving well.
The second half saw Lewis Hender take the field for his first run of the pre-season after minor knee surgery. Glenelg went into the game with mindset of giving several players who have had limited pre-seasons due to injury a chance to get some game time. Scott, Hampton, McNeil and Hayes have all spent much of the past month dealing with niggles. The players battled hard in the second half to gain some control back. Proud went forward and kicked two goals, Bradley worked tirelessly through the middle and Curran showed some good signs across half back.
Glenelg enter Friday nights’ trial against West with a number of players returning. Milera, Johansen, Howard, Snook and Earl all look like being available. McCarthy and McFarlane are still working their way through injury.
