Meanwhile at Moorabbin, Fraser Gehrig finds a new use for Stephen Milne…
Wow, what’s happened here? Does Leigh Matthews still have the magic touch? No, freakish weather conditions lashed the state of Victoria yesterday and gale force winds caused major damage all through the city of Melbourne; including St Kilda’s training base at Moorabbin. Amazingly, the Saints were unable to find an alternate venue so they braved the elements and hit the training track.
While it’s probably better than having no training session at all, it couldn’t have been the most ideal preparation…considering they play the Bulldogs indoors at the Dome on Friday night! And with all of St Kilda’s injury problems over the past few seasons, it’s a wonder that Justin Koschitzke wasn’t taken out by flying debris, like a carport roof, or Aaron Fiora wasn’t blown over by a gust of wind!
Perhaps this is a sign that luck is finally on St Kilda’s side…could this be their year?
Just in case you were too busy trying to find Stephanie Rice’s Facebook page, here’s some footy news you might have missed:
- Fev now has a lot of spare time after giving up booze and gambling…while Nick Stevens is starting to develop a habit of his own – training;
- Report that new Melbourne CEO Paul McNamee will duck off to Wimbledon during the football season has bogan footy writer up in arms…
- The ‘he said-she said’ spat between Mick Malthouse and the umpiring department won’t go away;
- According to Mark Harvey, mind games have no place in the modern game…which is, of course, another mind game used when your opponent beats you to the mind games in the first place. Now my brain hurts!
