Kozzy, Petty, Hunter and Oliver I haven’t seen

also Goodwin I haven’t seen

Brayshaw, May and Harmes in rehab from the seniors 

 

Does anyone know why Gus is in rehab? Has he had a procedure that has kept him in rehab since training resumed?

The 4 unsighted Kozzy, Petty, Hunter and Oliver . Lots of players in different numbers making it confusing.

Brayshaw mostly doing some kick to kick and repeat jogging with Adams and Verrell.

May and Harmes were in more drills then pulled out for light stuff.

Burgoyne, Deak and Joel Smith on light duties. Joel did some solid repeat sprints. AMW on the watt bike.

For a solid period they split in to 3 groups. Group A did a drill from the half forward flank working through token pressure 4 on 1 to then hit up 2 leading forwards v 2 defenders with another defender dropping back covering leading lanes. Some good hit up kicks in this.

The other 2/3rds rotated through a bigger drill using about half the ground. A long kick out of the backline went to the 2 rucks (Max and Grundy had some good marking contests) from which the emphasis was on super quick transition back inside 50 and using the switch or diagonal as much as possible.

T Mc, Brown, Schache, JVR all prominent.

It wasn’t even numbers or full pressure but the speed on the ball from the mids/backs/high half forwards was really impressive. Some nice kicks to leads and up over the defenders too.

JVR had a ball bounce off his hands and Jefferson arced across from his own lead, swooped on the crumb to gather it in the air, straightened and finished with ease. It was a bit like a taller right footed Fritsch with the touch of class.

Kynan Brown looked comfortable mixing it in traffic and like he has some zip in close. Kye Turner looks a similar size to our other tall backs, seems to have good athleticism and didn’t do anything that stood out too much. But the defenders weren’t tasked with any true competitive drills. 

I noticed a couple of very clean Bill Laurie moments and he’s certainly changed his shape. Howes had a beautiful spearing kick to Ben Brown’s chest at one stage too.

Great report

JVR with out a hair cut in Pettys number took me a while to realise who it was.

Max was taking great marks in the forward line but he’s kicking worries me

After the drills at the end of the session they did some running and Benny brown, Jefferson and Kyah Farris-White led the way. Was really surprised after the session they had and everyone else looking cooked. One stage Farris-White led by about 10 metres from The group. Pig pulled out of the running towards the end with some sort of complaint 
 

Really liked the way Rivers was training also. Seems to have some spark back.

Keep an eye on Howes. Chrissy drink with a mate who socialises with Taylor and asked me what I thought of Howes. Jason believes he is a super talent and will make an impact. An unfortunate foot injury prevented him from being on track to debut last season.Track watchers, I welcome your reports

Interesting. Has one of the least looking AFL physiques IMO...

Photos pre-Christmas he looked a lot more toned and seemed to have dropped a bit of the 'puppy' fat his was carrying when drafted.

I definitely think he's one to watch, he has fantastic skills when he is up and going.

Players were out early doing some stretches, light kick to kick and a few of the boys were doing goal kicking where they ran between a line of poles on each side of them and kicked over a metal "man" for goal.  The standout was Oliver Sestan who is a beautiful kick for goal.  Tmac, Melk and  KFW were others doing this drill.

They then broke into groups for the 2 Km time trial.  A number of different groups started from different parts of the ground and they didn't finish where they started so it was hard to tell who "won".  After the time trial they then went into the drills described by DeeSpencer.

Players to impress me today were Bowser who looked really good and kicked the ball beautifully, Kade Chandler who was in everything and also kicked very well for goal, Seston who did well in the drills and again kicked very well for goal and Tmac who was moving really well and was very clean with his marking.

Time trial day. Tough day for it given the heat and dryness. Tomlinson killed it, looked like ANB might burn him after he passed him 400 out, Adam was having nothing of it. Jack Viney the other stand out, also got around his players afterwards, and supported Verral who really struggled. Ben Brown was running very well, almost caught Gawny. Grundy was a bit slower than what I expected.

A few absentees, Petty, Oliver, Pickett, and Hunter. I wasn't sure if Burgoyne (43) was there. A run on a player with 33 on his back looks like him.

Light duties included, May, Harmes, D.Smith and Brayshaw.

Poor old J.Smithy, in rehab mainly by himself. Appeared to be lower back/left hip problems. Moniz-wakefield also rehabbing.

No kick to Kick, to start, but into drills where they have cross angles and move around each other. First with handballs, then with kicking. They use a variety of movement, with the last formation being schimmys and movement to four points with some defensive pressure.

They're into sims with two groups, not much tackling First group start with a scramble kick out of the backline and a coach brings the ball to ground, and they swoop outside the 50 and create a delivery inside the 50. The other group kicks a long ball out of the backline, to the talls competing, which then gets moved back to the forwards. A few of the players rotated through the different styles.

Into two groups talls and smalls. The talls do one on one marking, and the smalls tackling each other. The tackiling had some competitive vibe added to it.

The goal kicking drills were performed in a completely different way. The alley is formed between the stakes and a body model that is kicked over. One on each side of goal at about 35°. Williams stands behind the model and gives them immediate feedback. Mainly about the ball drop, how straight it is and where the foot contacts the ball. He knew if the kick was goaled or not, even without looking. It was the most accurate kicking I have seen at training. Keep it up Chocco.

After the goal kicking, they went to 8 repetitions of about 150 meter runs. The last three to leave were, Tracc, Viney and BBB, using the Williams method and with his feedback to get the set goal kicking right. 

Good start to 2023, they looked sharp and the noise volume was encouraging. Appeared happy to be back into "it'.

 Addit: I didn't see Hibbo get attention.  My thought was he was back to full training. Hope it is not that niggling calf/achilles.

Howes was getting lots of support and encouragement from the others. There's a good size about him, has excellent disposal skills and gets involved.

Very early going but enjoyed Mr Mongrel Punt's insights for 2023, backs are back, strong midfield cohort strengthened with classy experienced imports. Forwards; a tantalising mix of older heads Tom and Ben (Masters Po and Kan), Bayley already abroad (Caine), JVR and young Jefferson (tyro KCC's) their AFL journey about to begin. Out on the paddock this morning the chat might go something like this... "Close your eyes (post kicking action of course!) What do you hear? … Are you able to hear the grasshopper that is right at your feet."

He was in rehab prior to Christmas. Mainly working with the rowing machine.

Good to see him running.

Great reporting once again guys.

Thanks for all the reports.

Great to see TMAC and BBB getting back into fitness. We really missed these two last year (even though BBB played, he wasn't fit)

I think general fitness for the whole playing group killed us at the pointy end of the season. Fingers crossed for a team that can run out games haaaaaard! This year.

Choccos goal kicking drills sound pretty cool too. The cats dominated last year with fast switching and accurate field kicking. Hope we can do the same but harder and faster this year.

Happy 2023 everyone. Let's break this god forsaken premiership drought.

    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.
