While I was watching training on Saturday (maybe 40 minutes), Daicos seemed to spend the whole time practising his shots on goal, to the exclusion of all else including other training drills. Make of that what you will, as he's not one of the senior culprits.Dunstall in an interview last week stated goal kicking accuracy has dropped away because players don't practice it anymore. He said it was due to players not playing in set positions anymore. But indicated the lumbersome types such as Hawkins, Kennedy, who play the one position would be higher than the average forward (who played multiple roles).
Heard Jack Riewoldt on the Hall Of Fame tonight say the same thing in that players don't practice goal kicking as much any more
