Questions about Training 19th January, not a report

Is it on today? If so, what time? Have headed back to work this week but keen to get out for a couple of hours today to have a look.

Wouldn’t surprise me if it was a really short session today due to the heat. Hope green and Francis are wearing SPF 1000

They should get out there and go twice as hard for twice as long i reckon. For awhile there teams were spending big on training camps in the heat (port, melb, us to i think) as it supposedly produced good/better results than altitude.

And they are getting it for free right at home!!! :grinning:

Conor could turn up in a full firefighters outfit and still get burnt!

I think someone reported on the EFC site that training was on this morning from around 10am, although I can’t find it.

Even though it’s hot in past years they have done full sessions in extreme heat, just with more drink breaks.

Yep, 10am.

Its a scorcher to go out to watch training.

On the Bomber app Justin Crowe was saying they were going to have two quarters of match simulation and two quarters of AFLX today. Also gave a good breakdown of all the current injuries. Franga has a hip complaint but nothing serious… he lives!!

Did he use the word ‘knock’ or ‘complaint’, it is a very important technical distinction

Actually to be serious for a minute I’m really concerned about Franga. Three years of injury stopping him getting where he wants to. It wouldn’t totally surprise if he just walked away. Poor kid.

Crow re: Fancis- Á '‘slow and steady approach’ to his build up…

KNOCK= 8 weeks
SLOW N STEADY = Coooooooooooked.

Did anyone see the clip of the players playing AFLX before it was taken down?

Also, see Laverde lining up on Heppell in this photo:

A sign that he’s gonna play midfield?

And is that really Myers out-muscling Stewart?
