Tuesday Talking Points

The favorite son returns

There’s not too many players held in higher regard around Chelmer than Jimmy Rozynski, so it’s fair to say the club is pretty excited to hear that the two time Bill Pierce Medalist and triple premiership player is pulling on the black and white again in 2016. Rozynski spent last year flying down to Melbourne every Saturday to play in the Loddon Valley League in country Victoria, and 2014 running around for the Woodsmen, but is ready for another crack at the QAFL. Rozynski is as tough as nails, and will slot in perfectly to the contested style of play the Magpies love.


Yeronga burning up the track

It’s early, very early I know, but Yeronga have signaled their intentions for 2016 in the QWAFL already. They had about 20 on the track on Thursday night for their second pre-season training session, with a couple of new recruits by the looks of things. They aren’t mucking around this pre-season that’s for sure.


All locked in at the Cattery

After we wrote three weeks ago that Brett Andrews was going around again as the senior coach of Broadbeach, the Cats have locked away their senior coaching panel for 2016, with a big headliner. Craig Devonport, who played 95 games between St Kilda and Carlton, has made his way back to football after not being involved since his retirement in 1995, taking up the role of Development Coach.


The full panel is:

Senior Coach – Brett Andrews
Senior Assistant Coach  – Scott Abercrombie
Senior Development/Assistant Coach Craig Devonport
Reserves Coach – Alex Lobianco
Reserves Assistant Coach/Skills coach – Peter Clements
Colts Coach – Shane Madeley


T-minus seven days

This time next week it will be all eyes on Adelaide as the 2015 NAB AFL Draft will be just hours away. There have been five Queenslanders heavily linked with being picked up when names are read out, and another handful that are  a chance. It could prove to be a fantastic night for Queensland footy, next Tuesday.


Smithy in blue and white

Mt Gravatt’s big man stocks have received a massive boost, with the full time return of Andrew Smith from Redland for 2016. Smith played three games for the Vultures this year, kicked six goals, and was named in the best twice. Whether it’s in the ruck, down back, or up forward, Smith will be a tough matchup for any side.
