    With the 1st - 4th year players starting their pre-season on Monday (?), appropriate time to get this thread started.

    With the recent gun acquisitions, there will be fierce competition for spots. I'll try and go along to a few training session for photos and summaries.

    A nice article to kick things off: Eric Hipwood paving the way for Lions

    As the preseason kicks off, are all players fit and good to go? How are payne, cameron, mccarthy? Does anyone have any info on the current state of injuries or rehab to players? Adams said he was fit and ready to go. Matho certainly reaped the rewards of doing extra work last lear (16 games), has anyone put extra effort in over the break? Who will be the first senior player back early to train? Im backing mitch robbo.

    Looks like we are in pretty good shape to go this pre-season.

    Don't think Neale and Lyons are the dedicated types we thought they were. Can't get their priorities right. Chose a honeymoon over getting ready for football. De-list them as free agents and let another team deal with their preparation tardiness.

    Do we know if the boys are training at Yeronga or Coorparoo tomorrow and what time it starts? I might pop down for a look.

    Did they do the first training session at Qsac last year? Or was that a bit later on?

    Yer I think you're right, IIRC they usually do a time trial to see what sort of shape they come back in. If that's the case it'd definitely be a closed session you would think.

    Today's a beautiful day but I do have to feel for James Madden going from Ireland to training in this weather. Take it easy young fella, it's only going to get hotter and more humid.

    There is a very good team in that group of 23 players. Commitment and patience, is what id be preaching to this group from day 1. Stick together boys and success will be shared by everyone over many years to come.

    There are other teams?

    Harro is certainly going to be the leader for the next couple of weeks till everyone else returns - the only fourth year and the vice captain and just a guy born to lead.

    Especially as a 22 degree day in the UK is considered a heat wave:straining:

    Didn’t see Marcus Adams at training? Maybe starting later? Or was he in the shed on a bike or something hiding from the cameras. :p

    Corey Lyons looking a lot trimmer. Definitely looked like he was carrying extra weight last year which really wouldn't've helped him.

    Both he and Witho had a long and very fun loving trip last off season.
    They enjoyed their time off a little too much!

    If last year is anything to go by there won't be many times released until later in the year
