Training Friday 8 February


#288

He’s about 80m at centre bounces, closer if he’s on the near wing.


#289

He plays like he’s Saad fast, and Saad strong.
And he’s not.


#290

Based on what I saw today, so only a small sample, he looks very close.

Definitely ahead of Clarke.

Possibly ahead of McKernan too as it appears he’s playing predominantly full forward.

Wouldn’t be surprised if both Bellchambers and Draper play at some stage.


#291

From the video, geez smack seems to be clunking them well


#292

He is far too thin to play like Saad


#293

Completely agree.


#294


#295

Cmon man, too soon!


#296

Damn. Reached the end of the thread.

Enjoyed it so much I might go back and read it again.


#297

Mate from last week it’s improved. Draper couldn’t get the distance from a set shot 20 m out last week to kicking a few this week.
In all seriousness though, he’s practicing as third fiddle. Coaches are not doing the wrong thing though, TBC and Clarke are better than him at the moment.


#298

Angry Smack > Jimmy Stewart


#299

That is a bullshit free kick against Hird early in the last quarter. Should have been holding the ball to start with, then a bloke comes at him and he gets a free for protecting himself. No wonder McLaren copped a spray.


#300

Devon “Drama Queen” Smith…?? :smirk:


#301

Thanks all for the training reports. Is anyone else unable to play any videos on the club/AFL website? I can’t get them to work in any web browser.


#302

Dwayne Armstrong?


#303

Sounds like Jake Long is doing his part to keep the lid in place. However it reads as if he is a Lone Ranger.


#304

It had to be done


#305

We need more mongrel across the whole team. This is good.

Walla also likes a bit of argy bargy. I reckon Parish and Guelfi are up for it as well.


#306

I think that was towards the end of the first quarter.


#307

Without actually saying it was a direct quote and said right after the event occured as he was running off the bench. Context is everything.
