    I put this up not to reopen 'the debate' but just to say I expect big things from RB next season.....fully fit.

    Was at training briefly this morning by coincidence.

    In the short time I was there it was noticeable how much Gulden, Stephens, Gould and Campbell have bulked up.

    Gould is a weapon who would get away with stealing Buddy’s lunch money.

    Parker, Papley and Reid were there which I’d guess is ahead of their required training date.

    Hows about laying off him until the season actually starts, TB?? A fair few of us have not included him in the best 22 for next season. There is a chance the coaches will think along the same lines. He may not be in the team, then you wouldn't have to worry.. Or if he is in the team, if he's the player you think he is, he will be out of the team again very quickly. Things will sort themselves out!! Let them unfold. This is the pre-season. It is a time of excitement and wondering what these young cygnets can do. Please leave the negativity at the door until a situation arises that might call for it, like a bad loss or a bad individual performance..

    you have misunderstood my comment , i was praising him .

    i have said from the start i dont see the tenacity in him that i see in others , he is too timid .

    Its nice to hear him say he wants to be one of the best mids in the comp . No surprises i reckon hes dreaming but the ambition is there and that can take you places , so thats good to see . all i have wanted with him is to show some drive , if he wants to be one of the best mids maybe now he will know what you have to do to be one of them

    Good to see that, TB! Maybe we have been a bit too harsh on you and it’s refreshing to see this attitude. Of course, Rowy has to show what he can do on the field and your encouragement is a great step forward from your past criticisms- keep it up!

    Don Pyke is in Perth, very handy that with two new draftees and a total of four players training there until the New Year.

    Provided he doesn't bond with them and then poach them when he's appointed the Eagles next coach!
