Bernie, Vanders, Dom & Brayshaw still working out away from main group Quite strenuous now

My MFCSS is acting up with these four training away from the main group. It's basically our midfield core.

Arrived at1:40pm. Tyson, Brayshaw, Vince, Spencer, Vandenburg, Jetta, Dawes, Frost in Rehab group doing short run-throughout slow pace

I reckon Dawes should sponsor the Rehab group.  Will he ever get his body right?  must be so frustrating for him.  I think if he was fully fit he would be a decent player but these injuries/niggles get rid of whatever agility he has.  

He hasn't ever been fully fit since he joined us

Not sure how injuries to his legs effects his hands when he goes for marks DD.

he is a support player who we may get a dozen games from in 2016.

if he is around in 2017 it should be at a very much reduced salary.

IMO he is not the future that will see us playing finals football.

Melksham with Mids now after stint with Backs

This pleases me most from today's reports. Melksham training with mids and backs along with Salem. This gives us great flexibility.

Just got back home from training.

While overall standard was up, there was an increase in size to our rehab group with Dawes and Frost now joining the other pre-Xmas regulars - but given what they were doing with running, I suspect they are not major issues.

The big disappointment was no CP5 - although someone did say they saw him on the bike.

Brayshaw, Trengove and Dom Tyson looked like they must be getting close to rejoining the main group, while Spencil, Dawes and Jetta did plenty of running so not major concerns I think and Vince has to wait a couple more weeks for finger to heal properly. Only Frosty looked to be given a very limited program, so he's one that now appears unlikely for first pre-season game, although we still have almost two months.

A fair bit of running was done and not that much hard tackling work - overall it was more of a fitness session, so it was hard for players to stand out - Watts still wins the short sprints though, while T-Mac had trouble containing Grimes, Jones, Melksham and a few others in the 150m repetitions. Salem was in the best group with T-Mac, which is a good sign.

The highlight for me was watching Gawny smash the remedial runners group across the other side of the ground. That group included Dunny, Jeffy, Kent, so big Maxy is looking the part.

Dawes WAS in rehab group today but was running a series of 800 metre sprints at an impressive speed and easily accounted for Jetta and Spencer ( no surprise ) who were doing the same manouvres

Of more significance to me was that Dawes was noticeably bigger and muscular than his leaner ,paleo-inspired body last year.

He actually looked amazing?

Yes, but can he take a mark yet? Once he does that, then i'll agree that he, "looks amazing."

I was pretty impressed with Oliver in some of the drills today. He likes tackling & is extremely evasive. I'm looking forward to seeing him in the pre season games.

Can you do a quick brief on how the other young recruits are going MD?

Cheers

Sure

Weideman - Looks to be a smooth mover with good hands. I'm still trying decide if he'll be physically ready for senior footy. He's got a big frame & looks strong already through his core but lacks upper body strength. He doesn't look out of place.

Hulett - I'm going out on limb here, this guy can play. I can see him playing the lead up forward working up and down the ground. He impressed me today with speed, size & attack on the ball.  I also work with a guy who was involved with his junior club and says he's a freak who's been incredibly unlucky with injury.

King - Not sure yet, obviously big ruckman take time.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
