Started off with some shuttle runs split up into big men and smalls, Kmac was king also pleased to see that RCD has made some ground in comparison to previous years. Balta and Shai don't like shuttles but that hardly seems to matter once the balls start zinging around. Dusty was put with the lumbering big men again like he was in Monday's time trial, (appears the coaches are trying to give the young lad some confidence :D ).

More ball work today and game sim type stuff, it was basically move the ball on at all costs. They are yet to introduce the slow the game down the line drill that is often also practiced.

Session not exactly poetry in motion a bit of rust erosion required.

Were concentrating mostly on the young guys, Jack Ross and Dow probably taking the honors.

Back joining the group today were Shedda, DTLD, Mabs, Aarts, and Samson.

Drioli and Junior haven't been sighted all week so I am wondering if they had something in the NT that they had to attend to?

Basha doing so little I couldn't even call it a rehab session.

Unlike Dusty who's offseason partying is a fitness regime the same can't be said for Caddy, partied too hard and too long I think? or maybe he is just getting slower every time I see him.

For a guy that has been invited back to train for his life, the condition Egg has come back in is more than mildly disappointing to my eyes.

It will probably be a week or so before I declare anybody is training the house down, (and Dusty doesn't count).
Read somewhere that Dan Rioli’s grandmother passed away and he and MJR are in the Territory as a result

It has been pretty hard to pick the newbies out and to be honest I haven't really been looking as my concentration has been elsewhere, sorry I can't give you an update.

Obviously I'm keen to hear how every player is tracking, but I'm particularly interested in how the big blokes are going.

Guys like CCJ, Mabs, Garthy, Miller, Biggy, Ryan and Colina (when he gets there). We need a couple of these fellas seriously pushing for selection this year.

Any sign of Soldo around the place?

Soldo should be back late in the season if all things go well.
Hawkins the dog "tunneled" him and the media swept it under the carpet.
That's twice that we have slapped geelong and we have been a man down.

If that was a Dusty or Cotchin, people would still be talking about the dog act. But because it was a fringe player, it never gets discussed. The guy was probably robbed of a premiership medal.

Going to be hard getting Colina back into the country.
They don’t have a plane big enough.
COVID running wild doesn’t help.

Hawkins not only robbed Soldo of a premiership medal, but was culpably complacent during the horrific heist of Gary Ablett’s premiership cup, in prime time, by an ill-disciplined gang of nazis from right under the nation’s long, watchful nose.

Women and children everywhere were weeping in solidarity with Danger, easily recognised with all cameras centred on him, as he led poor Gary off the field.

Hawkins gazed on blankly in the background.

Felt bad for Harry Taylor who knew it was his last game but stayed out of the limelight. Quality bloke.

I hate defending Hawkins, perhaps he was thinking, look at look at me, look at me Diverfield trying to take centre stage again.

Yeah Harry was all class. There isn’t anything unlikeable about him, so I’m unable to childishly mock him. Harry gets a pass.

Gave the Tiges boys the thumbs up and wink in forming a guard of honour for Ablett. Miles better bloke than Dangerfield and Hawkins.

Just imagine if it was Lynch? Yet in the GF we had Selwood pushing Bakers head into the ground & the commentary were praising how tough Selwood was....
