Looks like his head was put into a vice and squished
Poor Hippy.
I wonder if we are looking at transitioning into a bit more of a running style of footy this year because at the sessions before Chrissie, I thought quite a few of the boys looked as though they had leaned up a bit?

If we are, that will prove to be a grave error come September. We only need to look back to our 2020 Preliminary Final for evidence of this. Size matters. Our 2001-3 team proved that. Footy's changed, sure, but not that much.

Suffice to say, neither of our two finals in 2021 were lost because we were out-run or out-paced.

Hi, can anyone please tell me what days/times the Brisbane Lions Mens team trains in the pre-season?

They tend to train at Yeronga on Monday and Friday mornings and Wednesday afternoons at around 3-4pm also at Yeronga.
What scope is there during cricket season to train at a venue with lights? Looking at our fixture so far, our earliest start is 4:10pm. I'd have thought we'd be ditching all the red footies at a bare minimum, and training as late in the day as possible. I recall several occasions where Joe Daniher literally looked like he had never bounced a ball on the Queensland dew before... and maybe that was the case.

I agree, but not sure the players are real keen.

A ripped Rayner being stopped by a more muscular Bailey...what does that say about the potential growth for our midfield this year?

Anyone been at training to see how many are running around?
Or how many might be absent?

It's definitely Bails but who's tackling but who he's tackling is the talk. Admittedly just saw the shoulders and the hair and assumed it was Cam but looking closer it might be Dev. If so wow.

If you click on the actual picture, the player's insta handle has been tagged by the Lions media team. Dev Rob it is.

Rayner has a tat on his lower leg from memory. Must be Dev.

Esit: it's on his right leg which would be invisible to us anyway. Scratch that.

One question mark I had on Dev is his ability to put on size. Can safely say he's looking ******* good. Getting that Ben Cousins body vibe from him. Just a super ripped dude that's not overly big but powerful and quick
