Jedah Huf and Jessica Rentsch aspire to bring an enthusiastic and encouraging attitude through their new roles as leaders of the Greater Western Victoria Rebels. “I think we’re both excited and ready to bring some intensity,” Rentsch said. “That’s what our coaches want, you train like you play, that’s their big motto. We just jumped on board (that).” Their inclusion in a four-person leadership group ahead of Saturday’s NAB League season opener was praise for the pair as this is their first year in the elite-level lane program. Hamilton products Kangaroos were two of 14 debutantes named to the Rebels squad for the NAB League season opener on Saturday, with Rentsch splitting his time between midfield and forward flank and Huf lining up as a halfback. centre-back in the 9.7 (61) to 0.2 (2) win over Gippsland Power. “It was very different from club football, the intensity, the competition, the pressure, it all came up. It was really nice,” said Huf, 17. “With 14 debutantes, you don’t really know how your team is going to develop when you haven’t really played together a lot. But I think we gelled really well and played well together.” Huf, who is in his first football season since he was under 12, first earned a spot on the Rebels’ pre-season program after attending a ‘bring a friend’ practice day last year .

Huf said she will work hard to improve her game every week and play the strong Rebels brand of footy that the coaches have promoted. “As an individual, I want to keep learning and improving my skills, and see where I can go,” she said. “I have already participated in high level programs, but I am still learning a lot on the football side. .” The Rebels will face Bendigo Pioneers at Epsom Huntly Reserve in the second round on Saturday. journalists work hard to provide local and up-to-date news to the community.
