He'd want to have a good year, as he's been ordinary in the forward line in recent times. If he can't succeed in the easier position at half back, we have half a dozen blokes who could take his place.
Yes, there's a bit of competition, and he wouldn't want to rest on his laurels.
Not sure how many of those competing for his position will able to go at the 80% disposal efficiency that Dan went at last season though. I was very impressed with that, and the run that he gave us.

Agree. I think Rioli back there will be exactly what we thought we would get with Yarran all those years ago.

And took on the Collingwood side single handedly :)).

Specialist ....Antagonist the Push Up King
Whilst doing business with an ex Pie last week, i had a bit of fun with him by saying "I've got another ex AFL player coming in soon, should be here any minute... Do you know Jake King"? (which was crap of course, i've never met the Push Up King)

With the look on his face, i thought i better let him in on the joke quicker than i originally intended to on the basis it was clear that if i didn't there was the severe risk i was going to have to administer mouth to mouth or let him die of shock on the floor, in which case of couse, he would have been dying on the floor!

Training today Monday:

RCD Clarke Aarts Cotch return.

Absent: Stack, Nank and of course still no sign of Will Martyn.

PS. Cumberland and Lambo also have not been there since boys have returned from break,

3 mystery players were involved in training also.

Sonz, Banks and Grimes took time out of rehab to each participate in at least one of the footy drills so must be getting a bit closer to resuming full-time.

Dusty definitely back to full contact.

Bakes and KMac are having good pre-seasons

When broken into lines Balta was again forward and no midfield for Shai, (this must be a ruse to blindside track watchers :confused: ).

If I am a forward I am not wanting the following players delivering to me on a lead based on my viewing so far : Dow, Hugo, MRJ, (so many easy targets missed).

Lynch started but then disappeared from training so not sure there.

Clarke catches the eye so will be one to watch.

Balta starting to show his wares after a bit of a slow start to pre-season.

They are smashing some conditioning into them but for the most part the draftees are given the luxury of sitting these out.

Biggie looking more confident out there, (keen to see what others think when they get a look at him).

Soldo danced around MRJ at one point :eek:

Parker has dropped off my radar a little bit.

Prestia still going strong.

Samson Ryan travelling ok can mark and I would back him in every time when he is having a set shot, (@spook can attest to this, still owes me $10 ;) :) ). Not sure if he has added strength?

Shai still my shinning star.

There ends my words of, (very little), wisdom for the day,

No actually, Cumberland has not been out there since the boys have returned from break I'll add him into my absent list in main report.

Riley was solid enough.

Don't worry when Brown stands out i'll let you know ;)

Cheers caesar, how's Lambert looking? A full season from him and Prestia will have us right in contention.

Is Banks still wearing a support on his wrist?

Bugger there is another one who has not been out there since the break will also add Lambo to my absentee list in main report.

It's become quite obvious that you've only got eyes for Shai:);)
