    Boom!

    Who's going to tear up the track?

    Who's going to start slowly?
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    If social media is anything to go by, Lukas Webb is flying, Lachie Hunter may be a slow starter....

    We'd have to have an article on how well Libba is doing about a week in.

    Nothing bad, just seems to pop up a lot on social media at some event drinking. Not suggesting he is misbehaving, just enjoying himself - so may not be the quickest out of the blocks.

    Spring racing carnival is over, time to get back into it for him.

    I don't think it'll be an issue. He has the highest natural fitness base at the club. It's more a matter of where he can get to by the end of preseason rather than we're he'll start.

    IM hoping T Boyd comes back looking like his fitness has already gone to another level.

    It's kind of easy to forget we've got him.

    I keep reminding myself.........AND we've got Tom Boyd.

    Luke Goetz is a 202cm/91 kg Ruckman who has only played AFL for 1-2 years. Altona boy who dominated WSFL early this year before finishing year in TAC with Western Jets. Very good athlete (2.88 20 metres apparently) but very raw. Good wraps on his potential.

    Charlie Lee is a 182/68 Utility from Warrnambool who has spent most of his time forward/mid but played as a rebounding half back this year with NBallarat Rebels in TAC. Did kick 4 goals on debut for South Warrnambool from the wing against men. Reportedly a very good athlete with 'x-factor' but struggles for consistency.

    Brayden Sier, 187/85, Northern Knights midfielder who seems the most developed as an AFL player of the 3. Also played a lot of this year for Marcellin College, where he won the Best & Fairest (Marcus Bontempelli also schooled/played at Marcellin, amazingly he could only finish 2nd in their B&F in 2012 - Marcellin has produced heaps of AFL players; Bont, Montagna, Caddy, Newnes, Zaharakis, Karnetzis, Shuey; oldies - Steve Silvagni, Gavin Brown, Paul Dimattina, heaps of others. So winning their B&F is a good indicator of some quality).

    Don't know if they are being considered for the draft (would be unusual for them to train with us prior to selection?). Look more likely Rookie/PSD possibles?
