Training with a small intra club as part of the mix.

Who’s the Seb Ross lookalike for Casey?

It was hard to work out many of the players.

It wasn't so much an intraclub game as match simulations in which one team had white tops and no numbers. You could recognise some of the players but the Casey boys were only recognisable by their lower skillsets.

My masseuse was way too late and stuffed up any chance of going down and seeing the boys train. How was it? Did they good good? Anyone get any photos?

it's not a hammy, just a calf. still got time to recover especially if it is minor

harmes said after the aflx he got a bit of a calf twinge too at the end of the final game

I thought Harmes said it was a cramp?

I’m surprised at the lack of reports since so many supporters complain that they can’t attend the usual training sessions on account of them being on a workday.

Ditto. I asked but no ones answered. My had ever intent on going, but my masseuse was late and ruined any chance of going. I asked if anyone went or took photos, but no response. 

The club hasn’t done any report on how it went. No photos or reports on the site. I was waiting all day for info on it on Facebook, but all I got was the female players favourite quotes. Who gives a flying f.....

As mentioned in my post above, the focus was mainly on match simulation involving fast movement and switch play but there were a variety of drills earlier and these included most of the available list bearing in mind that the squad of players from the victorious AFLX team were no doubt enjoying a morning off.

The two important players who missed most of the first half of last year through injury and  non-football related circumstances - Jesse Hogan and Max Gawn - both looked in good shape and ready to have a big impact in 2018. 

Others who impressed me were Michael Hibbberd and Christian Salem both in terms of looking fit and raring to go but also in their attack on the footy. Its interesting that although Hibberd and our AFLX star Jake Melksham (obviously, he wasn’t there yesterday) had good seasons in 2017, they both look ready to take giant steps up this year. Good signs.

I mentioned the small rehab group of Jack Viney (looking huge and aggressive) and Sam Weideman who were joined by Joel Smith and Jeff Garlett. Dom Tyson’s injury was apparently to his calf. No sign of AVB.

Nathan Jones was mopping things up coming out through defence and Mitch Hannan moved well. 

Of the newbies Harley Balic looked comfortable and at home with the group. Charlie Spargo looks a real goer and Oskar Baker is going to be a bit of a cult hero.

I reckon Jake Lever might go ok this year.

Clayton Oliver is looking in good shape and had enough sunblock on his face, arms and legs to convince me to take out a portfolio of shares in that industry.

A lost cause, do you think WJ?

I like others liked what we saw of him in 2016, but time is slipping away!

I believe AVB will miss at least the first month of the season if not more. He does provide a point of difference for the attack but given the demands of the game and the need for a proper pre season he’s going to start from a long way back.

I was over the far side at Casey yesterday watching the rehab group. (Viney, Tyson and Weideman) I was literally 2 m away. Dom was doing some fartlek running when he pulled up on the far side of the ground. He walked back to Crossy and said 'I felt something in my good calf' and pointed high up in the right calf. So Crossy asked him if he pinged it and Dom said no, but he definitely had awareness. They did some massage and a few more run throughs on it and then decided to send him inside. I don't think it is too bad at all. 

I watched JV very closely yesterday. He kicked over distance off both feet. He did straight line and lateral running, some bumping and ground ball drills and a lot of interval running around the boundary. Obviously conditioning may be an issue but unless he has a setback I'd say there's no way he's missing round 1.

From training:
No Lewis
Harley Balic looked good around stoppages and used the ball cleverly.
Nathan Jones a standout - will continue to play more an outside role this year.
Jack Viney moving well, both laterally and straight line. Did a truckload of running, kicking over distance with both feet. Very confident he’ll play round 1.
Quick ball movement the obvious game plan. Didn’t always come off but will be hard to counter when it does.
Dean Kent not dead and buried yet. Won a heap of ball and moved well. 
Dom Tyson wasn’t sure if he did his good calf or not, but definitely had awareness in it.
Clarry Oliver definitely instructed to kick the ball more and wasn’t always looking to give off by hand. He always make good decisions.
Justin Plapp was the man in charge today. Goody patrolled the sidelines with Brendan McCartney offering advice and encouragement to players.
Oskar Baker is a dasher. 
Christian Salem looked a class above with ball in hand. He’s slimmed right down and looks fit.
Many of the Casey boys acquitted themselves well and took it right up to the Demon players. It was funny watching Jones run past players and not know their names.

Thanks for the reports everyone- much appreciated!

Great to see Viney’s rehab has taken a big step and finger crossed Tyson’s calf was just a twinge.

Just wondering which group Salem was training with?  Are they looking to him to play midfield this year?

Also where are Balic and Kent training?

 

Thanks again!

I was walking around the ground and also watched JV closely and agree. I would add that, when watching him from close quarters, you can see and feel the intensity in everything he attempts. He was pretty aggro yesterday and is going to be a real weapon when he eventually gets himself fit.

Human 'wrecking ball'.  A mouth watering prospect, and Ican't wait..  Might need to move him up a grade so he doesn't hurt the opposition, I reckon.  ?

It is hurting himself that worries me Deeoldfart.
