Ex-Gold Coast utility Angus Watts to play for Gordon Eagles

FORMER Gold Coast Suns academy squad member Angus Watts will make his debut for Gordon in Sunday’s stand-alone fixture against Dunnstown.

Watts was last night named in the midfield for the Eagles after missing selection for Bendigo Gold in the Victorian Football League.

The talented utility is expected to play a handful of games for the Central Highlands Football League club when not required at VFL level.

Watts is an exciting addition to the senior side, says Gordon coach Corey Grills, who believes the youngster has already offered plenty of guidance and leadership during pre-season training.

“On the training track he gives great direction to our group and young guys and is not afraid to share his experiences. That’s what we are expecting out on the ground,” Grills said.

Eagles gun Ash Munari is another important in, named to play his first game of the season.

Munari, who represented the Central Highlands at interleague level last season, boosts a side that was thumped by a red-hot Bungaree at the weekend.

The Eagles were never in the contest against the Demons and went down by 76 points.

Dunnstown will be looking to bounce back from its own disappointing round one performance.

The Towners managed just four goals in a 40-point loss to Beaufort, and have named just one change to that side with forward Riley Browne replaced by Brad Hughes.

PREDICTION: Gordon comfortably.
