    The footage of last week's session was at the same venue. I was going to ask others on here if they knew what the venue was, but now I don't need to.

    I wonder if Lakeside is off-limits at the moment. The construction work alongside it is still going, so maybe it's not a pleasant place to train.

    I hope those are not their best wrestling efforts!

    I think they've been at Weigall oval down at Rushcutters Bay all pre-season so far (I have spotted them training from the train on the way to work) but I don't know why. I presume it is because of the light rail work one way or another.

    and so this is Xmas ........

    So we've hit the festive season break, all players have returned to training after their longest breaks for some years, only Tippett with major post season surgery, Buddy and Heeney some minor stuff, all seven draftees turned up without niggles and nearly the whole squad has completed the majority of sessions.

    So our Xmas present is a squad in better shape than it's been since records have been kept and new found enthusiasm and vision in the coaching box. That'll do me.

    Amazing how low the reigning premiers are on those lists. Just goes to show that it is all about the best team not just elite players.

    Interesting chatting to the players and how much a tough vs easy draw makes a difference in their opinion come final time some teams are cooked and some have a full tank

    Dogs
    Richmond

    Very nice draws each year respectively in their GF winning years
