Surprised there hasn’t been a report yet so I’ll start the ball rolling.
I was there till about 11:30 only.
My first time to the hangar and to a training session so please don’t expect the quality of a report by @knackers et al .
It was quite windy but no rain.
A match Sim was happening on the smaller oval but moved to the larger one where a bit of wind protection was provided by the hangar itself.
Doing laps only : Stringer, Cox Mc Bride, Langford Jayden Davie.
Jayden Davie was doing laps alone but at a good pace.
Jones was there but separate from the main group. Goalkicking mainly.
A lot of talk about Jones build , but to me he looks a bit similar to James Hird. Not sure he’s ever going to be a “monster” as Lloydy predicted but he is certainly not thin.
Laverde was separate from the main group doing a few laps and ball handling.
Munkara watching from the side while I was there. Saw him casually pick up a ball and slot it from the boundary.
Stringer doing lots of laps at a good pace but no ball work.
The match Sim was quite physical and intense in bursts. Was impressed with the serious feedback given from the assistant coaches.
McGrath and Walla stood out.
A few casual observations :
Lewis Hayes moves well for a tall. Noticed that he was left on for the match sim whilst Tsatas and Alwyn Davey watched on.
Rhett Montgomery was on 2MP in the match sim seriously height disadvantage but didn’t look out of place IMHO. Moves well and seems to judge the ball well.
Voss took a couple of good marks up forward. He will definitely make an impact this year IMHO.
I’m a D’Ambrosio fan, every time he got the ball he seemed to hit up a team mate. I’m sure he could do a Barry Cable or Bobby Skilton and land balls in rubbish bins.
