Ugle-Hagan: I want to be better

Western Bulldogs forward Jamarra Ugle-Hagan says he wants to cement a senior spot in attack next year.

Western Bulldogs forward Jamarra Ugle-Hagan says he wants to cement a senior spot in attack next year.

After arriving at the Kennel with the first pick in the 2020 national draft, Ugle-Hagan spent the majority of his first year in the VFL before breaking through for a senior debut in round 17.

The 19-year-old has spent a lot of time with captain Marcus Bontempelli to better himself this off-season.

“At the end of the day, it’s who works the hardest and who did the work before you even walk in for the season,” Ugle-Hagan said.

“Obviously that’s why I’m working with Marcus. Last year I wasn’t happy with my performance throughout the whole season, and I know I can do better.

“You don’t see him as ‘The Bont’ – you see him as your best mate, your older brother. He just pushes me so much.”

Ugle-Hagan, who started his second AFL preseason on Monday morning, said he couldn’t believe how quick his debut season went.

“It goes quick – all the boys were telling me that, and I said ‘no it doesn’t’, but then next minute I’m already in my second year,” he said.

“I’m just enjoying the moment and not taking anything for granted.”

Ugle-Hagan and the rest of the 1-4 year Bulldogs - plus a handful of senior players - commenced preseason training on Monday, with the full squad to return next week.
