Mountain Men shake off rust

GOOD SIGNS: Nick Lebish fires off a handball in Saturday’s practice match against King Valley.

BRIGHT had its first chance to get some on-field match practice ahead of the 2015 Ovens and King football season as they took on King Valley last weekend.

The Mountain Men and Roos met at Pioneer Park on Saturday and although official scores weren’t kept the home side was the more dominant of the two in the 6×20 minute format.

Bright coach Regan Alexander said the match was an opportunity to get run into the players’ legs rather than anything too serious.

“It was good for the boys to get out there together and have their first hit out of the season against opposition,” he said.

“It was more about getting a feel for a match situation and getting used to the physicality of it all again.

“There were some good signs across the field but we won’t take too much out of it.

“They only played their senior players for the first half while we rotated heavily throughout the six quarters to give everyone a good run.”
