Crows had there first internal trial yesterday morning. Things that were taken out of were.
• Tex, looking leaner & fitter. More stats yesterday then he's had in the last 2 yrs.
• A few of there experienced players like Sloane, Brown, Kelly, Seedsman & Lynch unnoticed.
•Backline will be under the pump if Talia and Doedee aren't right by r1.
•Draftees from last yrs crop **especially Pedlar & Jimmy Rowe ,and 2 yrs ago a shining light yesterday.
•Darcy Forgarty starting to use his size & strength smartly. **James Rahilly's imput a key figure in his improvement apparently
•Milera & Brodie Smithin for big yrs.
**noted some of the expectations from some of there bf posters were talking t4 - t8 already after 1 internal. That may change after there first scratch match v Port next Saturday

Maybe.

Mightn’t be a bad idea to find out if it’s true first though.
Yes true, but McNamara was on the Collingwood list from 2010 to 2012 so was at the club the same time as both players.

Aaaah Nick Maxwell. Best remembered for just one play in the 2011 GF. With 30secs to go he ran from the goal square , ball in hand, chest puffed out, down the ground. Too little, too late Nick.
You have to be fair with your posting

Go back one year 2010 drawn GF - and i dont care what anybody says - he saved Collingwood

Late in the last qtr - Stk had hit the front - the ball was kicked marginally into StK forward - and there was just 2 players - from memory Reiwoldt and Nick Maxwell - and Maxwell was right out of position - but he somehow won the contest ( and if he hadnt of the Magpies were sunk ) and re launched Coll into attack which they goaled from

It was an outstanding bit of play and i would suggest you would need a bit of talent to do what he did

I thought he was a pretty good player - reasonably quick - and a decent kick - as for his personality - well thats like Scarlett its just hearsay - how do you know

Na I don't. That vision is one of the searing ones from the great 2011 GF

I remember a pre-season practice match once where they tried Maxwell out as a key defender on Pods. That stopped about 10 minutes later after Pods had kicked 4 goals on him.

Just gotta pretend that ya have concrete in ya boots - once on the mark you can't move until the umpire calls play on, so get used to standing on the spot

What a farce this rule is going to be....


Hopefully they scrap it a few weeks into the season.
If you have the ball you should be always moving laterally. Either you get a free kick or you're effectively kick without a man on the mark. Almost worth not putting a player on the mark if you can avoid it, only think it stops them from doing is running in a straight line.

Was surprised we didn't have a look at Mason, thought Norf had 4 or 5 decent players on the list and he was one of them.

Wouldn't surprise me if this year him and Ben Brown have massive seasons.

Mason may go ok, but not sure on Brown

Brown's already had a arthroscopic surgery to address cartilage damage in his left knee - expected he'll miss the early rounds of the season, but he's going to be behind the 8 ball when he does return

Will get better service at Melbourne then he did at North last year or would at North this year.

If Melbourne can aim to have him fit by rd 7 they will make finals easily.
