Popped along to training this morning. I’m sure Nackers and co will add a more detailed report but here are some notes of mine.
Heppell – completed handballing drill with rehab guys before going inside
Gown – completed handballing drill with rehab guys jumping on exercise bike (small moon boot on)
Draper – completed handballing drill with rehab guys before walking around not doing much (seems he may have had a small knee clean up, small bandages on knee, walking around fine)
Modified/ building fitness
Daniher – great news! running and moving freely, did 40m sprints at full pace and a lot of running and some kicking
Hooker – Completed a lot of running, hard to tell if moving freely as he isn’t the best mover. Is building fitness
Bellcho – Pretty much did the same amount of work as Hooker did
Johnson – working on straight line running
Just joined full training
Stewart – moving great, looking great, did most of the full training except for the match sim
Hibberd – Same as Stewart
Cutler – started training on far side of the oval doing sprints with Stringer, joined full training then went to rehab oval to do more running, seemed bothered by a leg issue my guess would be hammy or slight knee problem. Doubt he plays this week.
Everyone else completed full training and I was impressed with the ball movement in the match sim. The ball seemed to fly from defence to attack. 2 things I really noticed was an effort to move the ball quick via decision making (i.e not holding the ball up in defence and moving it on quick) and the second thing was the running in waves getting the ball forward via handpass and short quick kicking. A bit Richmond like.
