Might ‘G-Prepare’ lookalike Jake Waterman develop into the Eagles’ ‘J-Prepare’?
West Coast defender Liam Duggan revealed the membership’s newest gag at coaching, with Waterman incomes comparisons to former cult determine Fraser Gehrig.
Gehrig, who performed with Waterman’s dad Chris for 4 seasons on the Eagles earlier than crossing to St Kilda, booted 103 objectives in 2004 and had the sport’s most recognisable mullet on the time.
Duggan chopped off his personal mullet earlier within the yr, however mentioned he had admiration for Waterman’s efforts – even when they’d developed completely different types of development.
“Jake has been rising that for a very long time,” Duggan instructed SportFM.

“So the large fella’s just a little bit disenchanted together with his mullet in the intervening time.
“However he’s caught to it. I’ll give him credit score. He’s staying with it.”
Duggan mentioned the Gehrig comparisons have been on excessive rotation on the Eagles forward of the group’s journey to Geelong this week.
