LOL at the comments by Kinnear Beatson. Sent a message to all the recruiters and list managers saying this type of thing happens a lot and then made reference to a wedge tailed eagle dropping in and plucking out a WA player. Can only assume that was a reference to West Coast hiding one of their juniors like Darling

I saw plovers draw blood from people regularly as a kid.

They generally give you a few warnings and then if you are still in the area they go bang, with a nasty spike on their wings.

I think they're second cousins - MRJ is cousin to Daniels' dad Bradley,
That would make them 1st cousins, once removed.

If MRJ has a child, then Dan and the child would be second cousins.

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!

Plovers, say hello to my little friend.

In case the Plover excuse did not cut the mustard, knee soreness after the vertical leap test was the back up o_O , (no way was Jnr completing the 2km test), he was however on record pace clocking 66 seconds for the first 400 metres, (extrapolate that out to 2km and 5 min 30 sec he finishes 2nd;):))).

“Due to his knee soreness and Maurice returning to the Tiwi Islands he has not completed the 2km time trial aspect of the combine testing. I can advise though his first 400m split for the time trial though was 66 seconds.”

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.

The 2/3k trials are just some indicator of endurance capability. It's pretty minimal; no real distance at all.

There’s a nest down at my golf club.
During nesting they’re incredibly protective. They swoop in pairs or numbers and dive at you from fair heights and at decent speeds.
Nothing that a 5 iron can’t fix
Your best chance at scoring a few 'birdies', Dont?

Agree, 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

Agility Test:


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.

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 endurance
