Ebinger soars into senior berth for Round 1 blockbuster
Williamstown's Round 1 team selection has thrown up a great story, with high-flying forward Nick Ebinger set to make his senior VFL debut in an Easter Monday blockbuster against Casey.
The 20-year old from Williamstown CYMS worked himself into senior contention after a standout second pre-season with the club, and a consistent year at development level in 2016.
The hard-working forward will make his senior Seagulls debut as 23rd man, along with Frankston recruits Daylan Kempster, Kyle Gray and Ben Cavarra, while Josh Newman and Jason Pongracic are also a chance after being named on the extended interchange.
Adam Marcon will also play his first official game back at the club since returning from the AFL.
Still recovering from injury are Josh Pickess, Ben Bese, Peter Faulks and Joel Tippett, who will provide the Seagulls with a further boost upon their return in weeks to come.
The Development match will also feature as many as 12 new Seagulls, which includes recruit Tom Wilkinson returning from injury, and talented Western Jets Harrison Boult and Deng Maguang.
All the action kicks off at Burbank Oval from 11.00am with the Development match, followed by the seniors at 2.00pm.
