Nah not Sestan, think we’ve established it’s Cooper Simpson.

Sestan had tape on a knee but didn’t seem too restricted. Got a nice bake from Choc at one stage for getting too easily pushed aside by Grundy in a handball drill.

Had a nice passage of play where he marked at half forward, held it up, took the man on the mark on and kicked long right to a leading forward. There’s some class to what he does but he doesn’t get up and back like most of our players. He clearly hasn’t had training in that elite style of football. I don’t think we’ll know until the VFL games start if he’s getting 5 touches a game or 12+ and making an impact. And we won’t know if he can make a two way impact maybe until next year!

Jesus, no leeway from choco considering the kid is up against a 2 time All Australian 203😳cm 100kg ruckman

Thank you how is KT going?

Like he's a part of the furniture. Fits in well. Can take a good grab in a pack or intercepting. Reads the play well. Has clean disposal. Will also benefit from another pre-season in the gym in an elite program (if he gets a gig on our list).

In the manner of @Demonstone's demonstrative quizzes here is one for the trackwatchers:

What in the Hell are these markings on the ground?

They are placed just outside the goal square and are permanently marked.  They run diagonally toward one wing only and are

enclosed within a box.  There are also two diagonal lines on both sides from mid goal-square to the 50m line.  Same at the other end of the ground.

They weren't used as part of the "snapping" exercise run by Choco before the main session, so what are they?

Unfortunately we are not the only sporting code/team that trains on Goschs.

If he makes the list will add him to the posse of up and coming young gunslingers [sic] Judd McVee

Surely someone knows something about Lever. Too important to miss a chunk of pre season. 

Jaded, just realised you altered your name!

My suspicion on Monday was groin related based on the type of rehabilitation exercises.

My theory after seeing The Fabelmans which is based on the early life of Steven Spielberg is that the markings are designed as a message to the aliens who are trying to find E.T. and get him back home. This is based on the fact that the movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was released in 1982 and his planet is reputed to be a shade over 20 light years away. Of course, Chocco Williams might have a different explanation.

Pheww huge thanks to Demonland, Slartibartfast, DeeSpencer and all posters love the training reports and inputs, always interesting when a couple of high skilled unknowns roll up and cause a bit of confusion as well. Be nice to pick up one of those two in the Draft.!!!

Neither looked out of place in the squad. That is, they weren't raw recruits fumbling, nervous and making mistakes.

Anyone care to suggest what name a fourth child might have been given by the Duursma parents, given the alphabetical progression from Xavier to Yasmin and then Zane?

Elon might have some ideas.

Can someone tell me where training is on Friday.?

Nothing listed on the official site but there is a good chance it is out at Casey. The club has recently put a warning on the Training Times page that Casey sessions are closed.

    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
