What's the go with two different players wearing the same number? We don't have enough jumpers in the skinny, extra-long size? Or do the two players have to face off against each other to see who wins the coveted Allan Jarrott number? 

No numbers are finalised. As per usual our new apparel hasn’t arrived yet so the numbers are size fits. Hence Grundy being in Jackson’s old jumper and Hunter being in Bedfords😂

Wonder if there will be a report that doesn’t have to follow the name Joel Smith with the words ‘light duties’ or ‘rehab group’? Drafted in 2016 next season will be his 7th AFL season for 28 games. Hope the poor bugger is luckier in love that he is with injuries. 

I was thinking the same thing, not so much about his love life though. Could do with a full preseason so as to get him strong and resilient. Hope they are just being cautious and he gets into it soon. Mainly worked the bike and not the rowing machine.

Mate of mine said he saw him wandering around Eppworth Hospital a week or two back. No idea if as a patient or visitor.

Kev, love to get your early thoughts on JVR & Jefferson. How are they both looking on the track?

Obviously don't think MJ will play much AFL in 2023, but keen to get your thoughts on how he looks as a future key forward option.

Yep..

But hey, let's re-sign him to a new 2 year deal as a reward..

JVR looking great. In the sims he was their go to man a few times. Lovely hands, good lead and double back. Easily got away from Lever, though Lever had to work on two attackers and regularly had to guard the space.

Need more time to look at Jefferson,  appears to be doing most things adequately,  except goaling which he does effortlessly. His fitnees not up to scratch yet, endurance is lacking. He has the posture type where his head is slouched forward, wish someone would tell him to stand up straight.

Cheers. Pumped to see JVR in the seniors this year!

Jefferson definitely looks like he needs 2 preseasons to be close to selection at this stage. Holding out hope he can build his tank and body size over the next 2 years to potentially look at playing late 2024 or 2025. Potentially he could be played as a third tall early days.

Geez he looked good didn't he, I was up close to that sim and couldn't be more impressed. He's got a bit of a strut going already JVR.

He is the sort of guy who should have been made to earn a new contract as a train on player, rather than being gifted a 2 year deal based on hopes and dreams.

Meaning: show you can get through a couple of months of training without breaking down again, and you can have a spot on our list.

I think Jefferson will be a pure forward.

Our third talls, could be TMac, BBB, and Tomlinson. They were all doing ruck work at some stages, together with Grundy and Max.

Verral was mainly on the outside of the squad today. He did kicking in a small group and some physical training all under supervision of a coach.

You don't think the coaching staff know what they are getting after 7 years? You think the extra month of early pre-season training is going to give them some sort wonderful new insight into him that the previous 7 pre-seasons have not provided?

He hasn't been gifted 2 years, the football department have decided that they want him on the list for the next 2 years because he's better than any alternative that they could have drafted.

I have no doubt he will be handled with kid gloves but maybe  a half forward flank role might suit if he has the mobility and pace to create chances in the early days on the third tall after moving around the forward line.

Any chance of fast forwarding MJ differently to JVR who really seems a KPF in style and physique and movement.

Was Petty sighted ?

Cheers snd thanks.

    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.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
