Training - Thursday 2nd August, 2018

Recommended Posts

Beautiful mornings start though the wind picked up later in the session.
Coaches approach following the warm up with invited guest and groups, to begin training.

Drills with handballs and some contact work. They split into positional groups and then quickly change again to kicking and lead up work.
Looking very good.

Simulations had Goody or a player kick to a designated coach who brings the ball to ground. Crumbers work to spread the ball. Contests and pressure, run, quick ball and a corridor.

Rehab had Jake Melksham and Michael Hibberd. Hibbo running hard laps.

Thought Aaron vandenBerg would have had a better session but fumbling and not strong passes may show he is anxious.
Sam Wiedeman looking great, strong hands and reliable goal kicking routine.
Cam Pederson doing well and has become more vocal in structuring the defense.
Mitch Hannan and Josh Wagner steady session.

Dean Kent looking the goods as was everyone else. It was a high standard of training today.

I reckon Vanders is in this week

- players and coaches formed one huddle then huge cheers, couldn’t see who for but it had to be for someone who hasn’t played for years or a debutant?

- straight after that Hannam, Bugg, Kent left the track while Vanders continued training with the forwards

educated guess Vanders in for Jake!

Hoges is fine, though he had same foot/leg stood on in a drill, had a laugh with me about it

Looks to be just the one forced change

Hi 000

when you reference "invited guests" in your opening post who are you referring to...Casey contracted players or others?

Many thanks

Hold up, I missed the memo that Pederson was a defender now?

Perfect opportunity to bring Vanders in against the GC, who he will absolutely bully.

Agree on perfect game to bring back but not sure he will just slot in and Bully blokes after 2 years. More likely be off the pace compete hard and hopefully jag a goal . Not expecting anything really but rapt for him if he is back. I caught up with AVB in an airport lounge about a year ago after another setback and he was a pleasure to talk to . Was really hopeful but not sure if and when he could make it back to AFL, a great credit to him that (hopefully ) he is playing.

You obviously haven't watched the Casey games, would not like to be first Gold Coast player he tackles

He is stronger, fitter and faster, his words

Testimony to the rehab/fitness staff again, especially Crossy, the guys in rehab work extra hard for him

Still a lot of emphasis on contested work at training
