    Re: Preseason Training - 2019

    Wonder if anything can be gleened from what colour top a player is wearing from a best 22 perspective?

    Oh yeah on a side note I really really like the new training tops.
    They come after one,
    They come after all,
    They can't handle all,
    Lets go....

    Interesting. From the photos I can identify the following:

    Black: Bont, Dunkley, Cordy, Gowers, Lipinski, Naughton, Daniel, Hunter, Macrae

    White: Williams, Sweet, B Smith, Vandermeer, R Smith, Lynch, Roberts, Jong, Cavarra, Richards, Hayes, Libba

    Most of the Black team in the photos are likely best 22 and most of the white are not. A couple of surprises though, particularly Ed Richards & Bailey Williams who most would have playing round 1, also Libba to a lesser extent. Lipinski must be having a good pre-season.

    I think it's the classic Possible's vs Probable's match simulation. You might have missed Crozier and one or two others.

    Like you, I think Williams and Richards are in the wrong jumpers although it might be to balance things out.

    I have been sitting here eating lunch and thinking "I can't think of a player we have who's surname is White. Maybe I missed a player we drafted?" God I can be an idiot sometimes. Oh well it filled in a bit of my day I guess!
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    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. "

    Its probably a good for their development for those two to be thrown central roles and told to basically lead a midfield against the senior players

    Heath Black, obviously! He'd gotten a tattoo and being 10% tougher now he turned up looking for Shaggy and in the confusion somebody handed him a training jumper.

    “I am not a stranger to the dark
    Hide away, they say
    'Cause we don't want your broken parts
    I've learned to be ashamed of all my scars
    Run away, they say
    No one'll love you as you are
    But I won't let them break me down to dust
    I know that there's a place for us
    For we are glorious.”

    Wests is a small but powerful player. He and Lipinski were paired up in a kicking drill
