Hopefully the season doesn’t have interruptions and just as importantly, the VFL too. At least having VFL would have had helped some younger players develop more than they could have in the last couple of years

Flea just needed half a season in the VFL and he was kicking goals backwards and sitting on Max Gawn's head.

I don’t think we’ll have interruptions but we will definitely be juggling a lot of outs I’d think, geez it’d be nice if all the players were to just get it out of the way with now - didn’t most of the Swans team get it? Might be an absolute blessing for them.

Gonna be interesting after 2 years of no seconds teams gonna have to rely on their whole list to get through the year - I think a few teams in particular may struggle badly. Geelong and Richmond to name a couple

Hopefully they all gave it to each other at Hunters' wedding.

I believe you can get the "Omicron" variant several times.

Most the players look pretty lean. Looks like the emphasis has been on running and being able to cover the ground. Probably the number one factor we lost the Granny.
And I’ve noticed all the North players have come back huge.

Naughty surely kicks 7 a week in our intra clubs - good to see his right foot nana was still a nice floater off the boot 😂 fix that up please Naughty. With the amount of contested marks the bloke takes near goals being competent from the pockets is worth another 20 goals a year

Good to see Shack playing on Naughts. Naughts is a nightmare matchup for him. Super strong, agile and super courageous. Hope they match up on each other all preseason. It could be the making of shack. If he can become half competitive against Naughts he will be able to handle most forwards

Naughty is only going to be as good as the next key pillar up forward.

If English plays as well as he did at the beginning of the year, they're both going to be bloody good to watch.

Best apprenticeship you could possibly ask for for Jamarra though to spend the next 5-10 years alongside Naughty - fingers crossed he in turn makes it a lot easier for Naughty in the future by being a handful himself. Watching these two together is going to be an absolute dream for us supporters

And then there's Darcy. With Flea and hopefully Bedendo, our forward line will have marking ability like none other.

If he gets the sit Naughts is unstoppable in a contest. Hopefully they fix his tendency to rush and play on when gets the ball 70m from goal.

What I take from the clip isn't really about Naughton but Schache. Naughton really should always take control of Schache and will look good. But this should be more about the learning curve of Schache and if he can revive himself in the long run. Yes, i'm sure there were times Schache did well as he wasn't the focus of the video.

I actually felt bad for him for poor Josh. Naughts destroys the best defenders in the comp regularly, it would be a nightmare to have to train against him several times a week.
