    Key forward slims down, hits the ground running

    link



    20-year-old Josh Schache is noticeably leaner after having shed almost ten kilos since making the move from Brisbane.

    Now weighing 94 kilos, the 199cm forward worked hard over the summer in order to improve his aerobic capacity and cover more ground on the field.

    When I left Brisbane and came down here I dropped about ten kilos, Schache told westernbulldogs.com.au.

    Ive really leaned back, I think I was probably carrying a bit too much unnecessary weight up in Brisbane. I dropped that weight so I could try and get around the ground a bit more and try and use that running ability to my strengths.

    Schache will work to add more muscle to his frame, finding the balance in his diet and training program.

    Ive learnt a lot about my body and what I can eat. The more I eat, the more bad weight I put on. Ive found a balance with maintaining the good and bad weight with what Im eating at the moment, now its just about how I can get that good weight on effectively.

    I feel a lot better, that I can cover the ground a bit more and Im a bit better below the knees than what I used to be, I think. Ill keep working on that side of my game as well.

    Eight months after joining the Western Bulldogs, Schache has adjusted to his new club and is enjoying being closer to his family, who live in regional Victoria.

    Being closer to family and friends has been really cool. I get back to Seymour most weekends so Im able to get that release from footy. Im really enjoying (my time with) all of the boys as well. All of the coaches have been really good for my development, especially Ash with his insights into how I can improve my game.

    Schache shares a house close to Whitten Oval with teammates Brad Lynch and Bailey Dale.

    Im just living around the corner from the club. The house is clean, everyones doing their part. Its been good.

    I didn't realize he is 6 ft 6. Definitely needs to work on his strength.

    From what he says about taking his diet seriously he is walking the walk. It's a very small sample size but I like what I have seen so far of his skills. He's a big guy, if we can get him a bigger tank and some size he could be handy running through the 50 metre arcs taking marks.

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    Can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. " He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Losing weight as soon as he got here , mirror of what we did with Tom Boyd , can we please not try and turn him into a ruck and leave him as a forward this time round ?

    Yeah he's like a baby Giraffe out there. Wouldn't think he was 94kg's the way he gets shoved around.
