Playing against WCE you’d think would be easy, but given he’d be lining up on McGovern or Barrass, I think he’d struggle.

 

McGovern out this week Sir Swish

Hey WCW, any sign of Salo?  Did he train with the group?

He trained most of the time with the main group. He spent some time one-on-one with a trainer under the guidance of a physio, and he ran along the boundary in bursts of sprinting while being timed. He looks good and was very upbeat.

Hey @WalkingCivilWar, did you notice if Jake Bowey trained fully? He appeared to hurt his shoulder during the game and was subbed out not long after.

Cheers

Yeah, that was worrying during the match, but today he seemed fine. He trained with everyone else.

Depends DR.  Might not even be on the FD's radar and he could be a long way from being considered.

If he does get a gig you just have to hope he can compete and bring something to the table.

He's at least got some height that could worry the oppo and/or take a tallish defender away from Petty for a potential mis-match.  Especially with McGovern out.

Shane McAdam may get the call up too. Bracket the offensive, defensive performances at Casey in recent weeks. Plus a Hail Mary and sprinkle some of Jake B’s pixie dust about for good measure. 
 

addendum; just read WCW’s post. Straight from the horses mouth. May have to reign in expectations. 

They fly to Perth on Friday. Casey play at Casey Fields on Saturday. There’s a Casey Captain’s Run at Gosch’s on Friday morning. It will be interesting to see who gets on the plane.

Verrall?  Was he at training?  

He was. He participated in the full session. Coming back to the tent he was getting pats on the back from Goody.

KFW also trained. He said he’s currently playing in the amateurs for St. Bede’s - Mentone with the MFC’s permission and he’s really enjoying it. It was great to see him happy.

@WalkingCivilWar it’s like you spent the time since the last training report in some geopolitical hotspot, interviewing senior cabinet ministers (but the spell was somewhat broken when you said “Spargypants”). 
 

Thanks for getting the scoops!

Done good @WalkingCivilWar. You’re hired.

YAY! Now I have three jobs. 😁 Soon to be four since I gave Reece the routine reminder that he promised I could have his job when he’s done.

He told me he played really well in the Casey match. Blowing his own trumpet… bless him. 🥹 I asked him if he’s been told anything yet about the possibility of a call-up. He said he hasn’t but they’ve been praising him a bunch.

Incidentally, I believe everything he says because he’s a kid and I find the kids never lie. They’ve yet to learn that fans are on a need-to-know basis and mostly they need to know nothing. 😁 The young boys are so honest and they divulge everything, including stuff about which you didn’t even ask. I don’t bother to ask the older seasoned players much since I know their answers may not be the truth. Fair enough, too. Some people are blabber-mouths. Unlike me of course. 😇

I guess they will take at least 26 to Perth so Casey will be even more depleted than usual.

Am I reading far too much into this - Verrall pats on back from head coach, and the next in line KFW training not at St Bede’s.  Is Verrall set to debut?

Dannyz reported yesterday it looks like Tom Fullarton will debut - I'd say in place of JVR as backup ruck/forward.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
