You wouldn’t read about it. It’s actually rained in Perth today!! It’s a rare sight seeing water fall from the sky in the west of Australia. We have a day off today, which is spent mostly indoors on the account of the weather. An early morning yoga session and swim have my eyes opened wide for the day ahead.

I make time to do a block of study after breakfast before catching up with Sam DeKoning to work through some vision together of our game v Brisbane and his practice game V Collingwood. We both learn off each other, picking up different things as we watch the vision of contests that we were in. Watching yourself on field with the benefit of multiple camera angles is a great way to improve your game. Watch, learn and then practice, that process ensuring you keep progressing your skills. There is no easy and quick fix for development.

Time and effort are two key constants that you need to make yourself a reliable and effective player. I spend the afternoon working on a quiz for tonight that Joel Selwood and I are putting together. All staff and players that are on the trip have been divided into small groups for the quiz, no more than six per team as per the required social distancing protocols. At the end of this article you will find a few of the questions. Have a crack to test your knowledge and I will send through the answer’s tomorrow.

There are a few different competitions starting to find their way into our program. A FIFA tournament is getting underway as well as a table tennis tournament. I wouldn’t know how to turn on a PlayStation so I won’t feature prominently in the FIFA awards but I may fair a bit better in the table tennis. Zach Guthrie would be my tip for the FIFA tournament whilst Nigel Lappin will feature strongly in table tennis. A golf chipping contest is being floated as another daily activity we could organise at our green space. This I am excited about and better get to practice based on my rehearsals yesterday. I wish I had brought a raincoat.

When it comes to putting bums on seats at the footy, the Prince of Punt Road may be the best at it in the game currently. With his trademark fend off and haircut, both known as the “Dusty”, Dustin Martin has the world of the AFL at his feet. His ability to play his best footy when it matters most has spectators in awe, with numerous past players and coaches posing the thought that Martin may be the best big game player ever, highlighted by his multiple Norm Smith medals.
