Aboriginal kinship systems are not always linear or logical in the way us white fellas might think. For example(in Arnhem Land) I call my father’s sister ‘mukul’(auntie) but I call her husband ‘waku’ (nephew). I also call my sister’s son ‘Waku’ but my brother’s son ‘gathu’ (son). I am often confused!
Well planned method to distract oppo teams to pass on him , could have beaten the 2klm record
Agree, tell me what Rioli would have blitzed a 2km trial, it is an irrelevant measure for them.I know players need to build a " tank " for the aspects of being able to regularly compete during the full course of a game. But I'm stuffed if I can understand why there is still such a strong focus on player 2 k and 3 k time trials. Even more than ever the game is about explosive burst sprints ( including to the interchange bench ) rather than the old school 70's / 80's game of onballers shuffling along from one end of the ground to the other with the occasional ten metre sprint thrown in for a bit of excitement.
Have watched the Oakleigh Chargers boys do the Yo Yo a few years back. Most the boys had bailed out well before 20 and the boys that did make to and past 20 were in a world of hurt. So if Jnr did a 20.5 then there should be no real concerns with his enduranceAgree, tell me what Rioli would have blitzed a 2km trial, it is an irrelevant measure for them.
If correct here are M Juniors PRESEASON TESTING results, (funny no 2km results there either);
PRESEASON TESTING RESULTS:Standing Vertical Jump: 60cm
Running Vertical Jump (R/L): 62cm/78cm
Speed (20m): 2.98 seconds
Agility: 8.11 seconds
Endurance (Yo-yo): 20.5
IF correct his Agility result would have him comfortably inside the Draft Combine Top 10
Sprint time of 2.98 sec is good, (As a guide Daniel Rioli recorded 2.89sec and Higgo was 3.10sec).
Yo Yo result I am assuming is fair? by the below description I could find on it
AFL Draft Combine top 10:
1. Brodie Lake (NT Thunder/Central District) – 7.90 seconds
2. Mitchell Duval (West Adelaide) – 7.98 seconds
3. Harry Grant (GWS Academy) – 8.00 seconds
4. Nathan O’Driscoll (Perth) – 8.12 seconds
5. Denver Grainger-Barras (Swan Districts) – 8.13 seconds
6. Isiah Winder (Peel Thunder) – 8.18 seconds
7. Marc Sheather (Sydney Academy) – 8.23 seconds
=8. Kellen Johnson (West Perth) – 8.27 seconds
=8. Chris Walker (East Fremantle) – 8.27 seconds
10. Taj Schofield (WWT Eagles) – 8.31 seconds
What is the Yo Yo test and what is a good score:
The Yo-Yo intermittent test (level 1) usually takes between 6-20 minutes. A good score for male team sport athletes is over 20 in the test, and over 22 would be considered an excellent score.
