New Bulldog in mix for top-level debut

Former Colac footballer Frazer O’Gorman is in the mix to make his SANFL major league debut tomorrow when Central District takes on AFL club Adelaide’s reserves team. Fellow Colac export Brody Mahoney, inset, is working his way back from injury with the club.

Former Colac Tigers footballer Frazer O’Gorman is “definitely in the mix” to make his debut in South Australia’s major league tomorrow, his coach Roy Laird has revealed.

The 18-year-old and fellow Colac product Brody Mahoney have been solid in the opening three rounds of the SANFL season in the reserves at new club Central District.

Both were named on the extended bench for the senior side for last weekend’s clash with West Adelaide, before missing the final cut.

But Laird said O’Gorman’s 20-disposal performance in the reserves would put him in contention for the Bulldogs’ match against AFL club Adelaide Crows’ reserves outfit tomorrow.

“Both of them are not too far away and they’ve both definitely got a lot of talent,” he said.

“Frazer’s getting closer now and he’s a chance this week, and Brody’s not too far away, but Frazer’s definitely in the mix.

“It’s in their hands if they’re prepared to work hard and get their ball use and ability up to scratch.”

Mahoney had an interrupted start to the pre-season after joining Central District from Hampden league Cobden in February.

Laird said he identified the Geelong Falcons graduate from the class of 2012 as a major part of the senior squad once he improved his match fitness.
