Gleeson out
Rance in

Love seeing a few leaders around. Obviously the future captains like Ridley and McGrath

But:
J.Kelly - vocal and bar setter on longer distance
Hind - Very vocal and probably even more so this year now he's settled
Parish
Rance (Even though it's meant to be as a coach)

I'm preying for this to be Francis time, but he's been talked up every PS for a while now. Hope he's at the next level fitness wise and we don't put a line through him down back

Courtesy of Nackers on Blitz: A few players have also been seen back training for a few weeks already, including Bryan who’s put on a bit more bulk, Francis and Stringer, who according to reports is in even better condition than last year, and has been doing a lot of extra work during the off season.

Stringerrr.

I spy:
1st-5th: Caldwell, Hind, Durham, Cox, Perkins, Reid, Brand, Baldwin, Waterman, Hird, Jones – injured, Bryan, Ham, Guelfi, Zerk-Thatcher
6th+: Kelly, McGrath, Ridley, Clarke (delisted), Parish, Francis, Heppell

Absent:
1st-5th: Eyre, Snelling, McBride - Ireland?
6th+: Wright, Cutler, Phillips, Stringer, Smith, Stewart, Draper, Redman, McDonald-Tipungwuti, Langford, Laverde, Merrett, Hurley - injured

There are some 6th+ that I can hardly believe are in their 6th year of footy... We have like two players left that we acquired prior to 2013 on our list (Heppell and Hurley), all of the other senior players were traded in more recently.
Eyre and Brand both could be seen in the promo video the club did with Jones, so they are there in some capacity?

Trying to hold him back as much as possible i think

Dont want him to overload and burn out. Carried a huge load last year with Zac

Thats just what i reckon without knowing exactly, he might have an injury but i didnt hear of any off season surgery?

A bit of stuff I found floating around Twitter.













A lot more pics and a couple more vids floating around on those two accounts, I’ve already done a lot of cutting and pasting though so if you want to look at more just click onto the links.
