    Tomorrow marks the official start of our 2019 pre-season with the 1st to 4th year players returning.

    Last year it would be fair to say that we never had a pristine pre-season, possibly the pre-season from hell perhaps?
    The good news is that there will be many more “Open” training sessions this year ;). Is anyone wandering down tomorrow morning to check out the latest inductees into the Stiffy Johncock Training Institute (FatClub)?

    My pre-season observations so far

    The Good News
    Brouch, Tex, DT, The Dude, Otto, ROB and Harto finished last season early and following surgery “should” be ready to go at the start of the pre-season.
    No longterm injuries (or at least none we know about).
    No reported “incidents” by the Boys (so far).

    The Bad News
    Were all the issues from the 2018 season resolved before they went on leave? One key to a perfect pre-season is for players to be in the right state of mind when they go on holiday so they come back refreshed and have maintained the required level of fitness.
    Andrew McPherson......WTF? After more than six months of groin conditioning, he finally fronted in the SANFL late last season. He looked great but subsequently blew a hammy and pulled up stumps for the season. Nothing has been reported since then on the AFC website but the AFL website has reported that he will have a “modified” program before christmas due to groin soreness. Does anyone have any other details?

    So....feel free to put all your pre-season training reports in this thread.

    I said similar on the other thread

    Happy minds fit bodies

    You dont need to manufacture fun or happiness. provide the competition and opportunity to be the best and the rest will take care of itself. Make it a fun place again

    I was wondering if this was covered anywhere (which you have in the OP) but apparently they've knocked down a number of stands (live in Melb so I haven't seen first hand) so at least it should be a lot more possible to view training sessions these days.

    Hopefully that leads to a more enjoyable off-season for all of us here!

    Great to see Rory fronting day 1 with the kids. Is that Bryce Gibbs on the left of the picture?
    Any other senior players there?

    Hence the nickname Wombat.

    Think you'll find the senior guys will pick and choose their sessions in the first week or so. Tex might not be ready yet and a few others were at JLs wedding

    It was actually because he doesn't lose his feet

    Himmelberg looks larger in the legs .....looks to have been doing a lot of leg work :thumbsu: ....that'll help him hold hos ground in marking contests, whereas in his only AFL game, he was like an annoying stick insect that you swat away

    Got to hand it to the AFL. All of their ridiculous dicking around with the fixture kept them in the news from end of trade period right up until day 1 of PS.

    Over to the clubs now to release bites until the draft extravaganza

    Vast majority is gone now. Most of the Northern and Southern stands are down. Whole Eastern is gone.
