Do you think the juniors come to training (KP Gilbert Hamiso etc) run rings around and tackle too hard, our senior players, who become disheartened?

Apparently McGuire said to Gilbert that he 'should just give up as he's not going to play first grade this year anyway'. They probably just know all their spots are safe so they just wrap themselves in cotton wool at training lol.

How do we always look like the more ragged team in the humidity. We train in it all off season.

This new fitness guy from the Dockers (joined for the 2019 season) has the jury out on him.
Because they don't understand the concept of tapering.
Billy Johnston did & they cracked the shits & got him sacked

Gilbert is obviously going great if Maguire feels threatened like that.

Problem is Paulo, Oneil has become a bit of a target, it is happening repeatedly .... all teams know to give him the ruff stuff and take him out of the game because he sits there and just takes it and the team don't have his back and if it isn't Oneil it is Morgan. All teams know the refs won't do anything about it and the team let it slide. Rinse and repeat and we sit back (and so do the players) and wait for it to happen again.
