Gibson Turner will remain in red and black in 2019 after signing a contract extension. During the off season Gibson has lost 11kg – this is prior to preseason even starting and will continue to improve his fitness as we progress. Gibson impressed in 2018 in the reserves but was not able to cement a regular league spot, but after a full preseason we are confident that Gibson will make an elite addition to our senior side.
The 2018 best first year player – Andre Parrella will also remain at Westies in 2019. Parrella has slotted into our league as our main ruck. We are looking forward to him improving his skills next year.
