Trident (5/10)



  1. I considered many of those points you brought up and agree with you. I guess there’s merit in being on an AFL list at it most basic level. Playing in the twos nowadays is pretty different as well. I think we’d have to have a torrid injury toll for him to play. Who do you think he would cover? I don’t think there’s any questions about the inside type of player he is but given we have Trac, Oliver, Viney, Gus, Spazz, all ahead of him he’s got some Work to do.
  2. So…… what for Dunstan in season 2023? I’m intrigued as to what he personally must be thinking. Surely he’d get games with other clubs? In my view, his opportunities are drying up by the day given the young talent we’re consistently developing.
  3. Is the letter J any part of the theme?
  4. My suspicion on Monday was groin related based on the type of rehabilitation exercises.
  5. Is there any source of information or just conjecture?
  6. What a great day. Watched the boys go around at Casey. Caught up with an old girlfriend at the Botanical Hotel (had a chat with Gil there too) and slipped back to her place in South Yarra for some dessert. Reckon I’ll sleep well tonight. 😊💪
  7. I do apologise. It was far worse watching though I’ll give ya the tip.
  8. Just looks smooth. Handles the ball cleanly and his skills are looking classy. Also like the way he covers the ground.
  9. As mentioned previously, rehab consisted of Max Gawn, J Smith, AMW (looks laboured in his running) and Jake Lever. Max put in about 45 mins of light running and short passes without any venom in the kicking action and then disappeared into the rooms. I overheard Caitlin Nobes telling Tom Brown that Gawn’s hammy isn’t too bad. She also politely asked the CH 7 cameraman to not broadcast any of the recordings he’d done prior to her coming over. Adams and Verall doing some conditioning work and skills/positioning activities but did not join main group. All coaches in attendance apart from Choco Williams. Chaplin particularly vocal and demonstrative. Warm ups consisted of handball keeping’s off drills and then some end-to-end full ground overlap drills. Skills were okay in this but without any pressure I wasn’t expecting to see so many missed kicks and ordinary handballs. Main offender was Bailey Laurie in my opinion but there were several others. Match SIM then started with blues and whites. I couldn’t discern who was the first and second string groups were and they eventually switched it up anyway. Highlights - Jefferson has great hands and a well timed leap. He received praise from teammates and coaches on a few occasions. Pickett OMG he is sublime. Just cruises effortlessly when he has the ball and then cranks up his attack on the opponent when he doesn’t. Viney is in for a career best year based on what I saw today. In everything. Chandler will play plenty of footy this year if he can translate his training form into the heat of a game. Tomlinson was terrific down back and fair ripping it into anyone who was not doing what was required. Hibberd also very creative and was the main architect with switching the play across half back. BBB also performed strongly this morning and moved well. Howes looks a player. Lowlights - Laurie I thought was poor. Mainly handballs at teammates feet. Harmes lacked involvement in the match sim. Melky pulled out of match sim and ran a few 200m and was in discussions with staff about some niggle. Oliver was in real discomfort with that hand. He was point to the top part of his hand just below the wrist. I was thinking the worst given the carry on he was animating. Once he returned to the field he went straight back into match sim and got nicely winded but the hand seemed to be okay. Watch this space. Summary: Overall I was relatively impressed with the session. Grundy was moving well and the forward entry looked sharper with an obvious focus on neat entry into the 30m hotspot. There was a few Joe the Goose goals during the sim so it may be something in planning to create more of those opportunities. Melbourne traffic sucks. If I was a player I would quickly start to loathe the drive to Casey. No snakes seen. Any questions let me know and I’ll try to provide insight. Cheers 🍻
  10. Howes trained fully. Lever was restricted to the bike and walking grandstand stairs. I’ll get back soon to you legends with a proper run down.
  11. When you’re clutching your arm, bent over on your knees with you face in the turf grimacing in pain I would think not
