TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

Recommended Posts

They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise. 

Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers.

They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise.

36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages.

Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes.

Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sims.

Oliver is ball handling, required some re-taping after the first drill.

McVee, McAdam, and AMW step away from the main squad, and are now with the trainers (light duries, goal kicking and easy laps). Melky joins the main squad.

They are now into full field drills. Precise kicking, hard calls, drive the ball through the centre, and run. They rotate through the whole area, goal to goal, and both wings.

Structured sims now. 9 against 18. 

Woey in the backline.

Sims finish, and McVee, McAdam, AMW, join the group again.

Salem, Spargo do easy, repetitive 200 metres runs.

McQualter has them in the middle, chatting away, Chaplin then does some demonstrations. May and Goody chip in. They appear to be getting into the nitty gritty.

They break, some continue talking, some off to kick goals (16 of them), others leave the field, the low ball getters as well (Laurie, Vines, Rivers, Howes, Sestan, Woey, Hore).

Goody one on one talk with Langdon

Choco with the goal kickers, mainly Fullarton. Then Tracc goes over for some tips but Choco stays with Tom.

Oliver on the boundary by himself, sprinting. Now hard running laps.

Choco now with Sparrow for some 45 metre goal kicking. 

Last out there is Petty and over walks Choco to help with his goal style kicking. Takes them from all the angles. Hits most of them.

Just noticed Viney, still working with a trainer, as well as Melky and Salem.

Oliver still lapping.

Oliver after laps, he did some sprints, and more laps. Ended up on his haunches,  gathering wind, a trainer comes over and they do a slap handshake. He finishes by picking up the equipment with the crew.

It is nearly all packed up, except Salem still running laps.

Had a chat to to one of the crew, reckons McVee is fine, just light duties, and they have a main session Sunday out at Casey.

Salem and Oliver walk off together.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
