It was a high pressure running session no doubt so that was what we had to report on and be honest in our opinion on results.
As I said Syd looked great with the cut of his jib but HK has rated his running efforts higher than myself.
Junior not a high bar to compare as he was a reasonable way 2nd last.
*Note: It was where I expected them to place but hoping they where a bit closer to the pack that's all.
First session back so no drama.
Still plenty to look forward to.
Caesar, definitely not having a go at you. And yes I'm an optimist. I went and watched the shuttle runs from next to the entrance to the Tiger Den and watched Broady, Hugo, RCD and Stacky closely. It appeared that MRJ pushed himself through all 5 sets. (The cramps 5 mins later support that.) Stackman cruised sets 4 and 5 but then looked good in the very next drill with ball in hand. Maybe he just paced himself knowing it was a 2.5 hour session. And then did some catch up work.

But will agree. He looked fit and trim.

Kane however looked ripped.

On Sydney, he may have been told based on his GPS/HR data to cruise through sets 4/5 and use as a recovery for rest of the session. I assume he hits his thresholds quicker than others and if they blow him up in the running he will be useless for the ball drills. I also base this on him doing extra runs at end of session. High quality first, volume 2nd. Of course I could be wrong but it makes sense to me.

Thanks for the reports guys, much appreciated. From the photos and the commentary I'm thinking maybe there's positives than negatives around Syd's presentation and effort at the minute. I suspect how he comes back from the Christmas break will tell us a lot.

Steve Morris was doing the shuttles with the team. The focus was very much on RCD and Hugo. They switched RCD from the middle of the group to run with (and keep up with) Broady. I clearly heard Steve call that out. They did not push Sydney. The dynamics in the group are fun to watch. To my eye there seems to be a level of some senior guys taking some of the younger guys under their wing and pushing them through some of the exercises. Definitely seemed that way with Shorty and Dow and how Nathan was being asked to drive Hugo and Riley.

Lambo and Broady are two of the clubs elite athletes when it comes to running so its good to see them setting the standard and putting the kids through their paces and showing them what its all about when neither of them need to be there and could be enjoying the rest period.

Shows some good signs re intent around the group.

JR8, GOAT, Grimey, Sheds, and Cotchy can keep their feet up for a bit longer.

Totally agree. That's what I took out of it as well.

So not exactly a sign that Stack is lazy then! Or unfit.
Could it be that he’s simply a poor endurance runner? Like a lot of the indigenous boys?
Like me even at my athletic zenith, Id try but endurance running was not for me.

I couldn't run endurance for anything I was always in the last 5 stragglers when it cam to anything over sprints.

Middle distance weak as pisss, long distance extremely extremely poor.

BUT !!

I was as fast twitch as it got, could sprint fast smashed everyone in sprints, high jumping and agility, reaction hand eye I was ace (hence I always played my footy as a Key Defender.

Every time I got thrown in the ruck due to my height I was cooked in no time at all.

No endurance whatsoever, it wasn't in my make up I was definitely a more explosive type physically.

But I would also recover quickly.

Heard you’re quick with a script and lightning with an invoice too

Shows how selfless these guys are & how great out culture is, these guys are essentially helping guys who can take their spots...

eating his turkey this year without being manacled,

will be a significantly better preparation.

Saw Syd on Swan St yesterday, looked in fine fettle to me
Not at the late night Kebab place I hope.

On Stack's fitness, the reality is a kid who hasnt done the work as a teenager, then missed last pre-season is going to take time to catch up to the rest.

your mixing your curry metaphors Mr Bright. A decent chillie con-carne or a Thai green curry can burn the gut but a vindaloo cooked correctly tends to burns when you are sitting on the royal chamber
