    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....

    You might be on to something there.

    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!

    Yet you didn't wonder who Black was?

    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.

    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Good to see Webb with the main group

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