Strength to Strength

Friday, February 16, 2018 - 5:56 PM

Head of Sports Science, Matthew Riley gives another insight into how the boys are tracking this preseason, 42 days out from Round 1

  • Bit about you in the new role, how you’ve settled in and how the boys have taken to your program
    • I have moved into the role with a strong focus on reducing the injury list from last year. The squad as a whole has amazing depth but unfortunately hasn’t had the best run with injuries the past few seasons.
    • I feel as the playing group and coaching staff have welcomed me into the role and have been very willing to trust the processes I have put in place to have the best opportunity to put our strongest team on the park come round 1.
       
  • Who’s impressed you on the track?
    • Youth (coming up from Colts)
      • Hamish Rodger has come back in fantastic condition over the off season and currently stand as one of our elite runners. Other boys such as Tim Bockman and Zachery Jackson have also shown great promise.
         
  • Senior Players
    • The addition of Griff, Jansen, Beokhorst, Kommer has really made a difference to the team. Their class and leadership has instantly shown within the playing group on the track.
       
  • What’s been the focus(‘s) of preseason?
    • The big focus that the coaching staff have pushed this off season is mental toughness. We know the boys have what it takes to be a great football side but we’ve had to break through a few mental walls for them to realise they have what it takes.
       
  • How did the boys come back after the Christmas Break?
    • The players came back from the Christmas break in good shape and should be commended for their effort during the holiday period.
    • As a playing group they have shown they are willing to put in the effort to get the results as this has been reflected in their time trial result. With most boys running personal bests this season.
       
  • Any one in particular to watch in 2018?
    • It goes without saying that the inclusions of the returning AFL players will give us a massive boost with player depth. If we are able to get good seasons out of them I am confident we will be able to push any side this season.
    • One player I’m particularly excited to see is Tommy Marshall. With his newfound running ability he should be exciting to watch this year.
       
  • Focus leading up to the games in March
    • We have some very big inclusions from last year tacking for round 1 vs Peel. The focus right now is to keep training intensity high and get as much time on the track as we can.

Preseason with Juppy

Friday, February 16, 2018 - 4:20 PM

March 30, March 30, March 30... that date has kept me going through another gruelling pre-season. March 30, our first game on a Friday afternoon against the reigning premiers Peel, finally our chance to make up for a dismal showing last season. 

Pre-season never gets easier, but I can comfortably say this year has been my toughest, both mentally and physically. It’s a long summer when you put in the performances we did last season and the reality of where we are at has pushed our training intensity to a new level. You can’t get better doing the same things, and on that note, we’ve trained longer and harder every single night. Our training has been completely stripped down and I don’t think I’ve ever had more touches of the footy than what I’ve had this pre-season. The thinking behind that is to make sure we are fit and we use the ball well, the two key fundamentals to winning WAFL football.

The club has definitely seen a lot of change in the past 6 months. It was sad to see our old conditioning coach Ashley Cripps move on at the end of last year, but with change brings fresh ideas, methods and a rejuvenated vibe. Matt Riley and Tom Newman from Ludus Sports Performance gym have come on board and haven’t missed a beat. Some of the changes they’ve implemented should see a significant reduction in injuries. They are class operators and should see our stars on the park fit and healthy.

Another significant change this years has been the introduction of SAS army staffers taking the group for a 30-45-minute session of hell every Monday and Friday. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t dread seeing the battle ropes, boxing gloves, kettlebells and sleds unpacking out of their trucks each night.  But as the sessions have passed they’ve become more bearable - we have certainly got stronger in the body and more importantly the mind.

We have been blessed this year with a few high-profile recruits and some gun colts premiership players coming up. A sentence on a few impressing on the track;

Nick Kommer - Hard nose bull! Exciting player to watch and one that strikes fear in to the opposition.

Jon Griffin – Tough and resilient leader, his presence has lifted our standards immensely. He’s going to be a great club captain.

Blaine Boekhorst - All class, a good mate of mine from way back. His skill and speed are a level above the WAFL. 

Jarred Jansen - best on track over pre-season by a mile. He’s trained the house down and will slot in nicely anywhere on the ground (hopefully down back with me).

Jordan Snadden - Unassuming hard worker with a sizzling left foot. Exciting addition to the mid forward rotation.

Cameron Loersch - The big fella has had a slight injury setback so he hasn’t seen much track time. Can clunk them though and I can’t wait to see him duking them up forward in the ones.

Russell Wynne – A young livewire mid forward from down south, can sell some of the best candy you’ll see.

Chris Scott - Hard running utility defender, unlucky not to get drafted after a great year in the colts. Could easily play round 1 if he continues to training well.

And finally, I’d love to thank the club for their faith in me and my leadership by announcing me as the Vice-Captain, it’s a great honour and something I’ll continue to cherish. As I sign off I’m getting ready to attend our annual pre-season camp down south, which will be a great opportunity for our fresh rejuvenated group to really gel.

We’re super excited about 2018, the year of the shark!

-Matthew Jupp

Griff to captain the Sharks

Friday, February 9, 2018 - 4:51 PM

The East Fremantle Football Club is delighted to announce that Jonathon Griffin will lead the Sharks in 2018. Matthew Jupp was elected his second in command, while Jonathon Marsh and Cameron Eardley round out this year’s smaller leadership group.  In a consistent approach to stripping preseason right back, having a smaller leadership group was decided upon.  

Following twelve years in the AFL system, Griffin’s wealth of experience has been a welcome return to the Sharks. Having played in a system that demands high standards and expectations, and the way in which Griffin himself lives those core values, he’s undoubtedly set the precedent for preseason.

Griffin’s leadership qualities have been acknowledged for some time and it’s no surprise to see him as our Captain.

A natural leader, Juppy resumes his position in the leadership group. When several of our leaders were out due to injury last year, Jupp certainly stood up and has earned the respect from his peers.

Eardley returns for his second year in the leadership group where his strong character and determination is a positive influence on the squad. The talented midfielder sets a high standard for the rest of the playing group and will continue to develop in this area during the year.

Marsh, now in his second year back with East Fremantle, has been instrumental in driving playing and training standards at the club. At just 22 years of age, Marsh will no doubt continue to grow as leader.

Jamie McNamara who captained our seniors for the past two seasons and Liam Anthony have both decided to step down from the leadership group to concentrate of playing footy as they enter the twilight of their career. They will no doubt continue to assist the leadership group and set an example for the young squad, on and off the track.  We’d like to thank them for their outstanding contribution and will be sure to lead by example in any case.
