    See how he goes after the preseason.

    Welcome back Swoop.

    Too early to tell, completely up to him. I expect a statement to come out shortly.

    Re: Preseason Training 2022

    This was posted by Mattie Malta on fb, thought it was well worth posting. Is he on here?

    Live at training (updated report below and vids embedded in comments)...

    Overview:
    Treloar not on the track, along with Dunkley, Williams and Gardiner.

    Ugle-Hagan worked on his goal kicking around corners and was consistently making these. Some field kicking errors at times, but otherwise moving well and looking ominous.

    Wallis was a general during the session. Looked strong and used the ball well.

    Bont loped around like a prized stallion. Just so silky.

    Bailey Smith looked sharp. Was loud and exuberant. Buzzing around and commentating on his own work; "He's kicked ten!" After scoring a goal during a drill. Was one of the last to leave the track.

    Hunter looked incredibly athletic. At one point he dived full length to catch an errant handball and somersaulted mid air, got to his feet and dished off. This resulted in loud praise from the coaches for his desperation and commitment.

    Stef Martin looked short of a run. Proppy at times and completed some drills outside the main group.

    Crozier landed some monster tackles and played further up the field in set drills and simulations, flagging a possible positional or role change (!?).

    O'Brien, Dureya, Butler and Hannan completed isolated drills as a group, including short kicking and a series of handball and reflex drills. Doc was great with his instructional work with teammates.

    MacRae moved with poise and controlled time and space. Kicking was exquisite.

    Cordy did a number of kick outs and after playing on, changed direction and regularly used the corridor with a long, set play kick. Teammates could be heard to say "runway" and he routinely launched down the middle. Looked effective.

    Schache moved well.

    Darcy did rehab work and looked incredible below the knees, picking up the ball cleanly for a big man and has a very confident demeanor.

    McLean ran laps at pace and looks close to beginning lateral movement drills. Rehab looks to be tracking ahead of schedule.

    Bruce did work on the bike after a brief appearance on the track.

    Weightman did some agility tests and running, followed by goal kicking. Didn't join the main group, but lots of high fives and involvement with his voice.

    Richards impressed me with directional changes and looks to be entrusted with slingshot runs out of defence, along with Bailey Dale and Caleb Daniel. Daniel was the standout of all players. A special highlight was breaking a Jamarra tackle on the Hawkins wing, passing to Wallis and then following up to receive the handball in the Gordon st/Barkly st pocket l, before curling an incredible pass to Raak after dodging Khamis. Bevo stopped the drill to praise him and say "That is an example of the features we are striving for. Outstanding CD".

    West was involved in everything and looks ultra fit. Bevo at one point challenged him over his decision making and encouraged him to come inboard through the corridor to reward teammates who had made good position.

    Sweet and English ran well and looked relaxed and composed with ball use.

    Arty Jones has some tricks with fleet footwork, however, field and goal kicking need attention. He and Hannan had specialist coaching over the mechanics of their kicking action. Jones was instructed over his ball drop and momentum of his approach. Had some mentoring from Varcoe also and was last to leave the track. I spoke with him after the session and he said he was so excited and seems like a kid who wants to listen and learn.

    McNeil looked fatigued. Bevo encouraging him to keep going "you've got to push through it", suggesting he is recovering from something. He had to step out of some drills to catch his breath.

    McComb ran hard and was regularly the pack leader.

    Anthony Scott instructed to be the intercept extra man up when defenders exiting via a long kick. He was effective in covering ground and punching the ball out when outnumbered or mismatched.

    JJ showed god dash and willingness to overlap. Vandermeer looks like he has regained his spark and pace. Was explosive at times from the stoppages and really arched the back

    Libba looked like he was stalking prey throughout, hunched over ready to pounce. His ball use was a standout.

    Naughton did repetitive goal kicking from 25m and struck them very well. Has an obvious swagger, looks bulked up and superbly fit.

    Bevo was very involved. Constantly giving feedback and challenging. He was critical of one player (don't ask who), for not listening and asking a question that he should have known if he had listened better. Bevo looks to have a real edge and intensity about him. Loved it.

    All in all, 32 degrees and two hours of intense and slick footy. Players look United and hungry.

    I just read this on Facebook too. Awesome overview with video. Even move video in the comments. If Mattie Malta isn't on woof he should be. Here is the link for those who have Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/west...8250335816594/
