TRAINING: Wednesday 1st February 2023


Recommended Posts



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 headed by JvR and on todays form I couldn't pick him for a place in the ones just yet. James Jordon also in White team as was Michael Hibberd and Josh Schache . Saw about an Hour and 15 of solid match sims. A few takes.

Ben Brown was in SCINTILLATING form. he must have kicked 5 or 6 goals gave about 3 away. Took strong marks in pack and on the lead. Completely overshadowed Adam Tomlinson who although tried was just outmanoevered. HE IS A LOCK FOR ROUND 1 IMV.

Brodie Grundy was all over it like a flock of angry seaguls fighting over a legless prawn. His ruckwork was great and his run and carry and work below his knees was flawless. 

Bayley Fritsch was also in scarry good form kicking some goals and cleverly placing himself in irresistable and dangerous positions.

Lachie Hunter He is going to be a weapon and a half with his Run and carry up and down the wing and Flawless disposal. 

James Harmes, Jack Viney, and Kozzy were just phenomenal in the midfield and just racked up disposals at will.

Charlie Spargo complemented the run and carry of the mids and was involved in several chains which resulted in Goals. 

TMac was a little quiet by his standards but still imposes and with his hi end run and leads created many opportunities.

Jake Bowey playing in the Blue team was impassable across half back and his disposals were alway creative and on the money smart. Looks to have maybe beaten Hibbo for that HBF spot perhaps.

The defense of May, Harrison (THE HEARTBREAKER) Petty were frugal and meaner and madder than a mosquito in a manikin factory.

Kade Chandler also played for the Blue team and he was busier than a one armed man trying to hang a picture! Kicked some opportunistic goals and was really involved.

Thats about all I have and I'll be back at Casey next week with another Blockbuster trainin. I hope this mini report makes up somewhat for all you Landers that went to Gosch's which would also have infuriated me!

    RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the Demons are to win their Round 3 encounter with the Sydney Swans this week, then the frustration of last Friday night’s uncharacteristic performance against the Brisbane Lions cannot be allowed to live in the collective heads of the players.   What made the mediocrity of the first three and a half quarters of the encounter with the Lions so uncharacteristic was that it defied every aspect of the impressive months of preparation for the season the players underwent along with the

    FLAG DEFENCE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons unfurled their 2022 premiership flag early on Saturday afternoon at Casey Fields and commenced their campaign to earn the honour of back to back champions in 2023. They did so emphatically beating Footscray by 37 points in a contest they dominated throughout and, but for some wayward kicking for goal early in the piece, they could have determined the issue a lot earlier in the day than during the final term when the Dogs finally hit the wall. The Demons were forced to make

    DARK NIGHT by George On The Outer

    A pleasant, balmy Brisbane evening with perfect conditions for football turned into a bleak, dark night in more ways than one for the Demons on Friday night at the Gabba. Coming up against a Lions outfit which had been truly cut to shreds by Port Adelaide the previous week, with the Demons having accounted for the Dogs emphatically, it was reasonable for the droves of Melbourne supporters to expect to witness more pain being inflicted as payback for their loss to the same team in the previo
