Preseason Training - Week commencing 12/03/18

Recommended Posts

Showed up late for training this morning. The main squad was split into blues vs yellows doing a 3/4 ground ball movement drill, kicking the ball to a free player to get a set hot on goal, then reset from the backline and repeat. Emphasis on precision kicking and switching across the ground. About 22 players involved. The Casey boys had not arrived as yet. Oliver & OMac running laps together, Lever running on his own and later joined the main group, Lewis in rehab with Cross and 2 others who I did not identify, one must have been Viney, but the rehab group left before I could get over to look. Jones walking the boundary.

Did not see T McDonald, ANB, AVB, Petracca. What is the go with TMac?

They then split into 3 groups for some more lightly contested drills that indicated who is in the mix for round1 and where they might play

Mids were Max, Tyson, Salem, Stretch, Harmes, Angus, Maynard

Forward group - Hogan, Pedo, Melcham, Jeffy, Bugg, Fritsch, 

Backs - Frost, Lever, Jetta, Hibberd, Vince, J Smith, Wagner, Hunt.

That is 21 players plus add Jones, OMac, Oliver, Trac, that is 25

Do we assume that Viney and T Mac and ANB aren’t starters for round 1 and maybe Lewis? 

Frost, Fiitsch, Billy, J Smith all looked impressive at times. Vince the whole time I was watching.

All reports are that TMac and ANB are precautionary so assume they are given a light week on the track to ensure all is cherry ripe going into R1.

Thanks, as always, for the report Earl. Apparently TMac has some sort of problem with a toe.  Bruised, broken or whatever (I dunno). 

How long is it since we had an injury update from Misso?  No mention of Hannan.

Think it will be a big session not an Intraclub, Casey have a praccy game on Saturday, so some may get a run there.

Nibbler was with Viney and Lewis doing some work with Crossy early in the session over near the music box on the Punt Road side. IIRC they seemed to be moving OK, in a rehab group kind of way. 

Joel Smith kept bobbing up with some nice touches in the main drill, and looks raring to go. Good to see!

Possibly I’m just trying to remember where I heard it, I think it was from 1 of the commentators after the game Thursday, goody said big session in his interview so will be a big 1 either way

Excellent. Hes almost  the forgotten man, along with Tim Smith.   Both of them I like a lot.  Would love to see the Smiths force themselves into the senior team like they did early last season.

Talent. Both of them. It would be outstanding for the Club, Team and Supporters. Forget Weidemann until these two are secured and running in the side.

Nibbler, Lewis, Jones, Keilty, Oliver and Balic running laps. OMac doing one on one skill work with the coaches, haven't spotted TMac or Viney. 

Rest currently in position groups doing skill work.

We could be in a little bit of trouble if both Tom and Oscar are not available come Round 1. I'm a little bit concerned about our big man stocks. I guess if Oscar is out then Frost takes his spot and Pedersen takes Toms.

Just because they are in rehab doesn’t mean they are injured.  Might have just got a knock in last weeks game and taking it easy.

As long as they force their way in, as opposed to the game/s Joel was gifted last year (especially upon his return from injury).

If there's a game NOT to be concerned about our big men stock, it's the one in Round 1.  Geelong a very short down back - only Harry the "true" KPD.  They have to go with a makeshift backline, but I think our makeshift forward line (if that's what it turns out to be), will be better.

This game will be won in the guts.  Plain and simple.

You beat me to it, I have stated this I don't know how many times, any twinge/tweak/tightness/ache is reported, course of action decided, Clarry may just have a bit of soreness

I am jealous, haven't made last few trainings, stocking up on money for season, made up for it by buying a bit of Bayley Fritsch in a sponsorship syndicate

So, Tom Mac didn’t report his sore toe for the last month. According to Goodwin, it’s been troubling him for a month yet he’s played AFLX and the opening JLT.
