Subi still with point to prove: Delahunty

Reigning Sandover Medallist Lachlan Delahunty says Subiaco has plenty of motivation heading in to the 2020 WAFL season, as they chase a third successive WAFL premiership.

Speaking on Sports Drive on Wednesday, the 29 year old Lions utility said the playing group was hungry as ever, despite equalisation measures put in place by the WAFC to limit their dominance last October.

"I think our motto this year is to hunt." Delahunty said.

"Not only every other team but the competition itself. We've got a big motivation this year so we've got plenty to fight for."

"If anything, it's (the equalisation measures) probably poked the bear a little bit. In terms of being hunted we'll try and reverse that around, a lot of clubs will be coming for us, we'll endeavour to fight. We're very motivated."

"Some people ask how do you get motivated each year, but you find intrinsic motivations, we've got a big one this year and we've got a real point to prove."

The former Frankston product won the Sandover Medal in 2019 as the fairest and best player in the WAFL competition, averaging 26 disposals per game and kicking 15 goals.

Delahunty said he had time to reflect on the individual achievement and accolade over Christmas.

"It's all a bit of a blur, it all comes together and comes and goes pretty quickly. It was probably when I went home (to Victoria) over Christmas and the amount of people and support you get from your little community and how proud they were was probably the moment that it all really did sink in." he said.

"All the hard work and time people put in to you over a career was recognised when I got to spend time with the people I love and all the support they've given me. It's a time I won't forget."

The four time premiership player highlighted Rowen Powell, Greg Clark, Michael Braut, Ryan Borchet and brothers Wil and Liam Hickmott as players who are ready to step up in 2020, the first match of their premiership defence on Saturday April 4th against Swan Districts at Bassendean Oval.
