Anyone keen to watch some VAFA footy and report back on Kye? Bonus points for any Austin Bradtke progress reports:

Early report is I can't believe they played the B grade granny on that swamp of a ground. That's disgraceful.

I skimmed through his VFL debut v Port.

He played back pocket, took his share of rotations off and at this stage I’d say he’s a tall flanker more than a key position player. Lean and long arms and looks an easy mover who wasn’t troubled for leg speed at VFL level. 

Some observations:

Q1: 12:10 1st, lovely easy run from deep back pocket to link up and nail an inside 50 kick

Q2: 5:12 easy elevation for intercept mark and hits his target with a quick short kick

27:56 kickout to 65

28:40 drops a kickout to a lead at 50

Q3: 1:10 weights a kick to the corridor 

3:50 reads it nicely for easy intercept 

16:01 nice strong spoil deep down back

23:01 long kickout!

Q4 30:26 nice spoil with the game 22 points the difference, follows up to receive a handball and kicks long and wide  with a safe clearing kick 

31:30 not as great some of his efforts to secure a loose ball

Then the game ends on a shoddy too high free kick, with Frankston giving up a 61-16 lead 

Not a perfectly fluent kicking action but not terrible. Kicks around it like a soccer player and certainly has distance. Interesting they trusted him on debut with kick outs 

Looks a very natural runner. Solid overhead with a leap so there’s more to work with there. Seems to track an opponent and the ball fairly well. Probably found the pace of the game quick with the ball bouncing around the deck, but on debut that’s not a surprise.

Looking forward to him playing 8th string backup to Kye Declase 

We all know that not all “he will be a gun” players succeed - Kye may offer yet another option, or as mentioned above, a surplus who we may offer for  trade. 
Just wondering though, just because he is training with us at this stage, does it in any way tie him to us or us to him?

Hopefully he’s a fitter and turner 

Should at least be fitter after a preseason.

No I don't believe so.

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
