The club's first practice match took place last weekend, the boys took on Clarence at Abbotsfield Park, I'm very pleased to report that the outcome was fantastic. One of the main focus points for the Coaching staff was processes and structures, some very positive signs came out of the game. It was also a great opportunity for us to assess the game styles of the club's new recruits. Mark Horne was great on a wing and fits well into team structure. Although Cameron Duffy was kept out of the ruck, he played forward and hit up at the ball well. Evan Magnus played forward, back and in the ruck, Evan's body work was great and he covered the ground well. Great early signs from our two recruits from the Top End!
After a big pre-season ran by Sam Yee, the boys have not realised their full potential in games, so going into the 5th period players still had plenty left in the tank. Therefore, there was a lot that came out of the game. We still have a few things to work on in the next two weeks. Vision was taken of the game with great results on Monday night from vision review, and I am personally looking forward to the build-up of round one over the next two weeks and the conclusion of our pre-season.

We were clear winners in our practice match against the East Coast Suns on the weekend. It was great for our new players to get a taste of the game, showing some fantastic potential and for our returning players got some run into the legs. There were exciting signs all round for a big season ahead!!! #hotpies2015
