Bulldogs Aiming High In 2008 by Stephen Benjamin Sport, Health & Fitness


T


he UNSW-ES Blindmaster Bulldogs are well into their pre-season un- der a new coaching panel headed by senior coach Terry Mudge. They have been sweating it out on the track since October in preparation for the upcoming season beginning in April, which will hopefully see the club return to a position of power in the SFL.


Terry brings a wealth of coach-


ing experience to the Dogs - his last position was assistant coach of the perennially successful East Coast Eagles. With him he has managed to attract some new players to the fold, which should add depth to an already strong Bulldogs list. Of note are former Swans rookie listed player Luke Jarjoura and Blair Oliver from East Coast. Last season was seen as a stepping stone year for the Bull- dogs. There were some excellent individual performances, none better than Max Collett, who just


two years ago missed selection in the reserve grade grand final - he took out the club’s best and fairest and was a member of the league’s representative team. A local junior, Max has worked extremely hard to improve as a footballer and he thoroughly deserved the ac- colades he received. Other players selected in the rep squad were Angus ‘Sweetheart’ Darling, former Swan Troy Luff and captain David Coupe.


The club’s decision to start an under 18’s team to build from in the future has many people at the club excited. This program has turned up lots of junior local talent and over ten of the kids also played senior football. On top of this, there were three AFL scholarship holders to come out of the group: Harrison Lee (Richmond); Chris Ogle (West- ern Bulldogs); and Khan Haretuku (St Kilda). Khan secured a contract with the Saints and headed to


Melbourne in November after be- ing placed on the club’s rookie list. Dane Rampe won the club’s rising star award playing nine games in the firsts - a great effort from a 17-year-old. David Watts was the driving force behind the new initiative and hopefully next year the club will be able to build on the performances and the team. The Bulldogs also witnessed the unveiling of a new club mascot, ‘Moff Man’. His identity remains unknown but there is no doubt sur- rounding his loyalty to the football club.


Any footy players interested in pulling on a Bulldogs jersey (seniors and under 18s) can check out the club website at www.unswesbull- dogs.com for all the contacts. The Beast will be keeping tabs on the Bulldogs progress during the year and will keep everyone in the east abreast of how their local AFL team is going.
