It seems as if no stone is being left un-turned when in recent years it has been. Kicking isn’t up to scratch? Righto, off to AFL coaches to learn to kick properly. Halves playing isn’t as strong as it could be? Righto, Matty Johns can you help? Fitness isn’t as great as it could be? Righto, new high performance coach and training methods, showing measurable improvements. No-one is guaranteed a spot no matter who you are, rather than permanent spots being handed on a platter to certain individuals...This is good.
I did hear whispers this was happening, but thought it was odd the media hadn’t really put an article together on it. Johns is a very good head with the little tactical things in the game. I think this will be great for both Milf and Niko.
I’m liking how Seibs has really taken these guys out of their comfort zones, and to some degree is laying down his expectations on our attacking men. I doubt he will be taking too many excuses from the boys this year, although I do believe we will need to be patient in waiting for the absolute best out of the boys.
Why none of this seemed to occur under Wayne is baffling, but we’ve all been calling for it for years, so hopefully injuries don’t curse us and we have a strong year because of it.
