For mine this quote from Parish this morning gives me optimism that we can turn our midfield woes around very quickly next year.
You could argue that Parish, Jobe, Myers and Heppell were all below their optimum aerobic capacity due to varying reasons and this impacted our ability to get to enough contests.
I think with a higher rotation of quality players (additions of Stringer, Smith, McGrath) to our midfield and another pre season under their belts and we should see a significant increase in output.
“Probably for me it’s that repeat effort, aerobic running (that I need to work on most),” Parish told RSN927.
“It really does test me at AFL level, getting from contest to contest, so it was a big focus for me over the break to work on and it will be a big focus for me this pre-season.”
