It's preseason training, there's no pressure whatsoever on the coach in terms of the fitness program at this time of the year. His input would be working with Burgess to get as much being done as possible with footballs being used. Where the pressure will come will be during the week in season where a player Nicks is desperate to be available can't train at full throttle. Nicks was obviously comfortable allowing Talia to play half a season without training, so a change like what Burgess was suggesting will be as confronting for Nicks as it will be the player in question.Nicks isn't a total softy and would have 100% trust in Burgess. I can't see him coddling a player who starts complaining about the amount of work they're being asked to do.

He's as automatic as is possible. If he's had an unhindered preseason it'll be maximum 1 tune up in the SANFL. Tex won't have to prove his form in the 2s, he'll just have to prove his fitness is up to scratch. And even I can mount an argument as to why that should be the case.Not being available for the first part of the season is really awkward for him.
If we setup an attack that fires early there's no reason why he would automatically get back in.
Eg Fogarty, Thilthorpe, McHenry, Rachele, Gollant and Cook.
?????…Newchurch getting a bit of airtime in the early media. Looks like he's still skinny as a rake.
