Training - Monday 23rd November, 2015

Recommended Posts

Well every face turned up to training today.

The older group ran in groups laps of the oval.

Chunk was a leader by miles.

Hogan ran without that pregnant cow swagger until the last 1/2 lap when he was urged by others to finish it off hard. The swagger then raised its head again but by and large he has improved his gait out of site.

Trenners was welcomed back into the fold of competitive running.

Gawn was running really well and right up there with the leaders.

I saw Terlich at the start but didn't see him for long. Anyone who said he had put on muscle must have been looking in the showers because from my view point he was still a runt.

The then went through a series of 40m timed sprints. They all looked pretty quick, but no one broke any records that I could see.

I went over to the Punt Road side and watched a few of the rehab go through some timed routines.

ANB, Jeffery, Trenners were doing some 75% running exercises.

ANB tweaked his left knee last week, nothing serious he said it was bandaged but didn't seem to be affecting him.

Trenners seems to be running well, but I would like to see him In A couple of months and see if he can sprint. He said he should be joining in kicking with the main group before Xmas.

I sai to Jeffrey what are you doing here. I don't know he replied. You don't get much out of Jeff.

Chunk has recovered well from C4-C5 disc replacement, he said when it happened he couldn't raise his arm. He said he is glad he got the surgery done or next year may not have been possible.

Petracca was getting the feel of football again with crosstie getting him to take overhead marks.

Chunk had him kicking to long leads. Just like a high half forward would be putting it down the throat of a leading FF IMHO.

The group then split up into two groups occupying each end of the ground.

The then went about getting the ball out of defence. Then getting the ball back into FF. Every player started one on one and they spread as required.

Apart from a few errant kicks the workout was pretty good.

I left there about 3:45 so some else may add more.

Thanks for the report, BR. How did the new guys look?

When I said every face turned up the only ones I instantly recognised were Kennedy and Bugg, I wouldn't recognise Melksham if I fell over him.

They seemed to fit in in, it was basic training principles where it was like 2 areas of circuit work.

I didn't see Roosy or Goodwin there, so they may be in Adelaide getting ready for tomorrow.

Next week we may get the real deal.

Looks like Roosy in the club training photos, wearing a cap, which makes him harder to pick.

I'm always surprised when people tell me the player its looking like they have put on muscle after being away for only a few weeks.

Thanks Mr Rubble. Great to hear that Trenners is on the track and hopefully on track.

Training started early with players out before 2pm.

Really it was training session 1.

Some kicked the ball, some ran and some fumbled marks.

All in all, people seemed happy to be back in the start of football for 2016 - I was.

Had a look for a while from about 3-4:30.

Didn't see Terlich, Newton, Lumumba, Vince, Spencer. Only saw Brayshaw watching.

Three in the rehab group - Trenners, ANB, Jeffy. Plus Jones, Petracca.

Jesse is grumpy at the moment. Angry at team mates. Seemingly holding himself back in the running. Not sure what is going on there. Still has a laugh every now and then.

Wasn't happy with the [censored] kicks from some players and fair enough too. The talk might have been a bit too negative but I'd take that over the previous complacency. Up to the coaches and leaders to make sure the mix of positive and negative feedback is there.

JKH repeatedly tried to do too much in drills and was repeatedly told by all and sundry to take the simple option.

Viney dropped a mark, JKH picked it up, Viney went in for the tackle, JKH evaded him beautifully for a few steps, then met his mark. It's going to take something very special to slip Jack from a tackle.

Grimes was training well. Looks well also. Mitch White looked even better. So did Jack Watts.

Dunn hasn't missed the buffet, but he's always looked that way.

Jayden Hunt found the ball in a few drills. Runs well and marks strongly on a lead. Unfortunately, is one of those who can't kick. Might be getting better but seems a low base.

I notice a couple of well timed spoils from Melksham, he does have good reach, the half back idea might just be a winner.

Kent, Dawes, Vanders, Melksham, Hogan and King did a few repeat 300's. Not sure what they did to deserve it. Kent led out the first few, then Dawes took over. Not a lot of distance between the first 5. Unfortunately Kingy still looks like a sure thing to get your money back in a cup sweep, he struggles to stay with the others.

It was a good session from what I saw and a heavy focus on skills under pressure and quick sharp decision making.

Thanks everybody for the reports.

Just wondering if there's enough room on Gosch's Paddock to fit Clayton Oliver in the event that we draft him?

Yeah I'd hate to have a 400 game superstar too

A 400 game player, thank you.

Just a player doesn't play 400 games. Respect well deserved

Absolutely agree.

However, he's no superstar.

A very good player indeed.
