Monday Dec 2nd.

I decided to head off early, just in case they started earlier. You just never know whether they are gonna start early or around 10am, better early than late, I suppose.
We were told the boys would be starting at 10:10, which wasn't too far away.

As the boys started out, a few of us called over Trey Ruscoe and had a chat to him. He was very excited and very nice young man. He didn't mind a chat and was happy to do it. Definitely lots of enthusiasm in this one. Then the one I was waiting for came out, BIANCOOO! I reminded him of how it was just 12 months ago today that he was just training with the boys, and now he is one of them. Coming full circle. He was very Sweet and more to welcome to chat to us. Still pretty surreal to him I would imagine.
Rantall then came out chatting to Bucks, probably thought it was wise to chat to the coach rather than to us, but from what I could see, he was a nice boy, soaking up all the info and direction he was being told.

Players in attendance
De Goey
Grundy
Elliott
Treloar

Mayne
Browns x 2
Varcoe
Greenwood

Phillips

Moore
Appleby
Wills
Quaynor
Sier
Maynard
Howe
Lynch
Tohil
Keene
Wilson
Noble
Cox
Mihochek
Madgen

No Beams, WHE, Stevo and Langdon

They all started to warm up, and they then begin the time trial. It was about three laps around the track.

Rantall were neck in neck the entire time, until Rantall put on the speed shoes and got ahead of Phillips just as he rounded by bend to speed home for victory. Between the two of them, everyone else was miles behind.

Randall - 6:04
Phillips - 6:06
Sidebottom: 6:21
Kelly: 6:26
Murphy: 6:29
Wilson: 6:34
Madgen: 6:35
Howe: 6:36
Lynch: 6:37
Tohil: 6:38
Sier: 6:39
Wills:6:44
Roughy: 6:45
Bianco: 6:47
Shaz: 6:48
Elliott: 6:50
Mihochek: 6:51
De Goey: 6:52
Tyler Brown: 6:52
Pendles: 6:53
Thomas: 6:54
Ruscoe: 6:59
Varcoe: 7:03
Cameron: 7:04
Moore: 7:12
Cox: 7:18
Grundy: 7:51

Crisp didn't run the time trial. Neither did anyone else here I didn't mention. trust me, I have video, I have double checked the players.

Next up: They did rotations which involved taking the game on, handballs and ground balls. They were in a few separate groups of about 5 or 6 (I have videos I will upload later after my work christmas party), and rotated through the different groups across the group.

There was drills, and then two versions of a match sim on the AAMI park side of the ground. Again, with Kelly playing on Howe, they are playing him forward.

Coaches seem to be impressed with Murphy's work.

FYI: In terms of Wilson, he now has a footballer's body. Seems he has done some work on it over the last 6 months or so. His shoulders and arms. I think he will be a lot more involved in 2020.

I know I put Maynard down as present, but now I'm not sure if i saw him, or whether I went on people around me and how they were talking about him.

Would you be able to post the videos of the time trial?

Really good and positive news for Rantall at 1 followed by Kelly (4), Murphy (5), Wilson (6) and Sier (11).
We really need some of these unknown quantities or lesser types to really start making a move and taking the load off existing senior players.

Pretty thrilled that Wilson’s tank has improved significantly and he’s worked on his rig. Also that Sier came in with a good time. Hopefully a sign that he’s primed to have the year we hoped he’d have last year.
Agree has to one of our big hopes because it could make such a difference. Hope he stays injury free and head screwed on

Worth pointing out he returned in great shape for the 2019 pre season and improved his 2K TT impressively from previous seasons. For mine he was tracking well, played the intraclub at Olympic park and looked good but was injured. Disappeared for a while with no explanation at the time and rest of the season was no good.

His photo today at training looked excellent and similar again to early last pre season. Hope he has an injury free prep and hits the season full tilt. Given his TOG for most of his games has been 50's and 60's%region a full pre season and attitiude switched on gives him enormous scope. Hope he can do it. Todays photo below

He's certainly got the physique of a star.

Much appreciated.

What role was Murphy playing?

Still overseas by the looks of it.
His pre-season got interrupted at the Gold Coast camp when Roughy stood on his ankle. You're right, his foot was quite sore in the opening rounds and he finally found touch. Even Rhys Stanley believed he could play football after competing with Grundy in Rd 1. We knew differently for both by Rd 1 of the finals.
Ran the Time Trial today and was very slow, but that is the usual for him.

Im sure he was there.
Came out with the main group.
Was approached by players (Pendles gave him a hug).
Several taps on the head & behind.
Something personal has happened I assume.
Was warming up with Dunn (kept fumbling the ball), didn’t appear to be focused.
Disappeared soon after.
Not sighted again.

Thanks! I was busy being entranced by Bianco at that point
