He had surgery to both ankles in the off-season so we can cut him some slack (just this once)

Cut him some slack.

No way the slack buggers missed the finals, the weak pea hearted bastards.

Bugg looked very good all session... he won the time trial yes, but on the final lap he was huffing and puffing while both TMac and ANB appeared to have a lot left in the tank.  Bugg’s kicking is looking very sharp as well... I get the feeling he’s working hard to make up for last year’s transgression.

Others who looked very sharp were Salem, Hogan, ANB, TMac, Oliver.

OMac is looking very fit and seems to have built up his body. JKH is also looking very fit and is moving well.  Petracca, Jones and Kent were all in rehab, but looking like they could be ready to participate with the main group... although Kent really doesn’t appear to have his heart in it... to my mind at least.

Can’t recall all of those in the rehab group, but Weeds, Tim and Joel Smith, Maynard, Viney and Balic were all there.  Saw VDB, who did not participate and did appear to be in some discomfort walking across the ground.

My son took lots of photos today and I will provide a link to the album in my Facebook account once I’ve had a chance to get them off the camera and edited.

This doesn't look good for him. Sounds like he's coming from a long way back.

Having a look at him prior to Christmas, it looked like he struggled to maintain muscle during his rehab.

Here's wishing he makes it back and soon.

I’m just going on how they were sounding as they passed us on that final lap; my observation only.

Thank christ we have something resembling football to talk about.

 Late next month we see the boys on the field again. I love the pre-season comp. Beats watching the Poms bat any day.

Surprised we haven't heard more about the new boys. Years gone by it's all we would hear about.

How can you tell if a players heart is "in it"?

Body language.

As Frustrated Demon said, it’s the body language. For example, there was one exercise he was doing with Peteacca and Jones starting in the centre where in this case Kent would kick to Petracca, keep running then take the handball from Petracca and kick to Jones, keep running and receive the handball from Jones and then kick a goal... while Jones and Petracca run as hard as they could, when it was his turn, Kent barely got above a jogging pace.  He just seemed to be going through the motions.

Could also be a confidence thing as well.

Possibly, but for some reason Kent doesn’t strike me as someone who would have confidence issues.  I hope you’re right though, because I’d like to see him do well this year.

Could be that Kent's shoulder is still troubling him or is yet to reclaim full movement. That can also affect his confidence notably

No, I’m sorry, but that’s the on;y place I can keep them... I don’t want to have to manage multiple sites. I’m not 100% certain, but I would have thought you should be able to view them without a Facebook account as I have them up for public viewing.
