LAUNCESTON defender Josh Woolley has been one of the Blues most consistent performers this season.
The 20-year-old Woolley has notched up about 80 senior games and is in his fourth year of State League football.
Woolley picked up Burnie big man Andrew Lee in last week's game at Windsor Park and said the whole side was disappointed by that loss.
"We worked really hard on our skills during the week after the loss to North Hobart," Woolley said.
"We want to be a really great team but we're just not quite there just yet and still have a few little things that Sav [Brennan Savage] wants us to work on."
Happy with his own form for the Blues so far this season, Woolley said they needed to beat Devonport this week to get some momentum happening heading into finals.
"We had a discussion mid-year among the players and I think I've been pretty consistent this year," he said.
"I think I'm on the same level as last year but I'm probably a bit fitter and I'm moving all right at the moment.
"Devonport got on top of us earlier in the year which was disappointing but I think we're looking all right now and we should have the edge on them up here at Aurora on the bigger ground, which suits us and lets us get more run going."
Unlucky to miss out on the AFL draft last season after being one of the state's leading hopefuls, Woolley said he had been trying hard on-field and off this season to remain at the level that should attract attention from AFL talent scouts."I haven't had any calls or anything which is no good but I'll just keep on playing my game and hopefully good things will happen at the end of the year," he said.
