Would like some info on Shuey lads, so has he been training up until a few weeks ago?
Did he run any of the time trials and what is his injury?
Yeah he was training at a higher standard for the first time in years but not has an aducter issue which could him going to hard so soon after the season finish.

But would she then suffer Ainsworths fate in being unable to properly handle the balls?
It's not the handling of the balls that has been his problem. He gets plenty of it. It's just his balls haven't dropped properly yet. Hopefully that will be rectumfried by the recent procedure on his finger.

Yeah he’s definitely not a natural lock down defender IMO so hopefully they can find a new role for him up the ground
Midfielder / defender for Nelson.

Need to be flexible remember.

He's done his time down back, has been slowly building his endurance, time to let loose in the middle. Nelson has good pace and aggression. Remember reading the club rated his kicking as very good at training.

Playing up the ground he will hopefully relax a bit and just play. Down back he looks like he panics a bit defending close to goal.

"Lewis Rioli bangs it long out of defence and hits Willie Rioli on the chest, he handpasses off to Charlie Rioli who sends it into the forward line and LIAM RIOLI TAKES A BIIIIIG MAAAARK! Wowee! Get a load of that Richo, did you see the dukes?"

I’ve been calling for more midfield time for Nelson for the last two seasons. Hopefully he gets the opportunity and makes the most of it this year coz he’s got talent.
