Rehab Group:

Lever (in runners but kicking the ball well and seems to be moving well), Max (not present), Melksham, Howes, AMW, J Smith - then later joined by the following not participating in contract drills/Match SIM - Brown, Spargo, D Turner, Verrall, Adams

 Stafford was out early with Grundy & Verrall doing ruck drills. 

White Guernseys:

May, Bowey, Trac, JVR, Rivers, Sestan, Nibbler, Kozzie, Grundy, Hunter, Harmes, Fritsch, Laurie, Jordon, K Turner, #46 (may be Cooper Simpson from Dandenong Stingrays

Blue Guernseys

Clarry, Salem, Langdon, TMac, Brown, Tomlinson, Brayshaw, Dunstan, Spargo, Chandler, Petty, Burgoyne, Jefferson, Adams, Sparrow, McVee, Schache, D Smith, Hibberd, Viney (wearing #24), Woey, #44 (May be Zane Duursma)

Disco Turner doing some short sprints and sideways runs with a trainer away from main group and rehab group. 

Farris-White in civvies behind the fence not doing any training. Been told he is not training as a result of concussion. 

Jefferson lovely hands and very clean disposal

Kozzie is everything, everywhere all at once. I’ll eat my hat if he isn’t playing more midfield minutes this season. 

Reiterate Laurie’s poor disposal that someone mentioned the other day. Missed a couple of targets. I normally wouldn’t have noticed but someone mentioned it the other day and I saw 2 instances in a couple of minutes. 

Bowey and Salem are so clean with long disposal off half back. 

Lachie Hunter is going to be a weapon for us on the opposite wing to Langdon

I don’t know what our forward setup will be with so many options at our disposal but JVR will be playing Round 1. 

If you wrote off Hibberd write him back on. 

Impressed with Schache’s marking and disposal. Time will tell whether he can break into the team and be more than just a like for like for Weid

Disco Turner now just running laps at a decent pace.

Doing the whites vs blues 5 on 5 handball drill in a small circle with an alternating player on yellow as the both teams player. Goal is keepings off the other team and handball through the goal at the other end of the circle. Yellow was Trac now Brayshaw. Harmes is in yellow now. 

Woey is very skinny & wirey. Wouldn’t mind him bulking up. Like what I see though in terms of skills and intensity.

Langdon came off second best tackling JVR. Limped off to the side but is back amongst it now. 

Adams doing some work with one of the trainers away from the main group now. I would assume it’s because the main group is doing a contact drill and he is recovering from a shoulder injury. Impressed with Adams size. Was running laps later with the ruckman Verrall and is not much shorter than him.

Full ground SIM about to start. 

Beautiful kick from Laurie hit up long target. Earlier poor disposal were handballs. 

Maysie very vocal and at times quite matter of fact in his critique to players. He has a high standard that he expects from his defenders. At one time he called Kye Turner over to him and ask him to run over to him. Kye proceeded to jog over and Maysie yelled "I said [censored] run".

Trac untouchable. 

I’ll say it again Jefferson has solid hands. Once he builds up and does his apprenticeship at Casey he will be a very good addition to our forward stocks. 

Spargo running laps and not participating in the Match SIM

Oliver didn’t participate in the 5 vs 5 handball drill and I haven’t seen him handball much if at all today. Is taking marks (on the chest) and kicking the ball. 

Intensity in the Match SIM is high. 

Another group of players doing the 5 on 5 handball drill.

Viney in Yellow then Dunstan then Chandler.

Grundy took Viney down in a great tackle. 

Would love to know what role we play JJ in this season. Looking very slick at training. 

Fritsch gets a free kick against for a sling tackle on Viney

Verrell, Adams and Turner doing some kicking drills on the rugby field adjacent to the main oval.

I’ve been very impressed with Trent Rivers this training session.

Another match SIM about to start

Sparrow getting amongst it. 

TMac tries to take on Kozzie and gets dumped in a tackle. Holding the ball. 

Any question marks on Gus’ fitness should be put to bed. 

Ben Brown has not participated in any of the Match SIM or contact parts of training.

Grundy vs Schache in the Ruck

Clarry marking balls on chest. Not quite comfortable using hand. Something’s NQR

Langdon wearing the invisibility cloak. No one near him and he’s racking up possessions. 

A note about the match sim; every time a player takes a mark they have about 3 seconds to dispose of it.

Stafford taking the tall forwards in some marking and leading drills. TMac, Schache, JVR & Jefferson. 

Chaplin taking Grundy & May in some one of one marking contest drills

That’s it from me.

In summary we’re training the house down

Disco putting in some quick laps, not the biggest yet but looking quite the athlete.

Spargo sitting out a drill for running now too.

Verrell in some training drills. Adams with the yellow hat. So they’re both progressing

Jeffo does the body work but spills the mark.

K Turner recovers from losing the contest, handball to Harmes, long switch to Rivers, short hit to a rolling Fritsch at half forward who hits JVR on the lead.

Ie. That’s what we want to see

The Anchorman just played on at half forward, stepped around a few, took a bounce and handballed to no one. It was bad but highly promising 

Kid has Fitzmagic tunnelball potential

If 46 is an academy kid he’s got to be a 25 year old in a 18 year olds body. Just took down Tracc with ease 

He’s been incredible!!! Evasive, good skills too #mystery46

Looking forward to less "kick it long down the wing and into the pocket" and more "hard running and switching with precision kicks into an open forward line"

The pressure on the players outside of the core group to fight to get selected must be immense now.

I'm struggling to think of a time in the last fifty years where we've got so much potential depth to our list.

(Feel free to throw this back in my face in a mid season selection thread) 😊

    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

    WIZARD333'S TRAINING REPORT I went down and it was locked out for first hour but could see through fence then allowed in. Max Gawn ran laps — it looks like a 3 to 4 week injury. Andy Moniz-Wakefield ran laps. Blake Howes was taken off late as was on restricted minutes. Adam Tomlinson loudest on track and a leader - surprised me but won't be in best 25. Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    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.

    DEE ZEPHYR'S TRAINING REPORT Morning all. First time at Goschs for a while, there’s a scoreboard set up which I’ve never seen here before. Possible match sim? 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
