The Singleton Roosters unveiled a handful of recruits in the club’s practice match against Cardiff on Saturday.
The Roosters would enter the affair without 2016 premiership players Sam Brasington, Daine Cowburn, Andrew Macpherson and Travis Bates allowing the side’s younger crop of talent a small taste of senior footy.
AFL Canberra recruit James Colmer donned the Roosters strip for the first time and starred in the middle while fellow debutant Joel Eade nullified his opponent from start to finish.
Though scores weren’t recorded, senior playing coach Andrew Scott led the possession count in a best on ground performance.
He and fellow midfielder Alex Mitchell are expected to feature in the Singleton Argus’ top ten AFL Hunter Central Coast players list this Friday.
MEANWHILE the Singleton women’s side celebrated a 32-point win in their practice match against Muswellbrook at Cook Park.
Mal Draper’s talented brigade kept their opponents to a final score of 0.2 (2) in the absence of star Tori Cowburn.
