Tuesday Talking Points

Buzz the cult hero

It didn’t take long; actually it only took minutes. When Wylie Buzza’s name was read out at pick 69, he instantly became a cult hero at Geelong. Some have called him the best name in the draft (no arguments here), while others love his long mop of hair, creating quite the buzz around town. The Melbourne media loved the boy from Gatton and his laid back approach, with both the Herald Sun, and radio station 1116 SEN giving him a big run late last week. Check out the pink wheels he was rolling with in his first session at the Cattery yesterday.

Box one, tick!

When Perry Meka took over as coach of Labrador, he set out to sign 40 players in just 20 days. That’s a mountain of a task to achieve; especially in November when not every is sure what they are doing in 2016, but that didn’t stop Meka. Not only did he achieve it, the signings are still rolling in. Check them out on their Twitter account HERE


Double trouble

Why have one when you can have two? Griffith Moorooka have announced that Corey Burrell and John Simpson will team up next year to coach their QAFA (A) side. Both will continue to lace up the boots on the weekend, which means there will be a lot of instruction coming from on the field. After making the preliminary final last year, the Roosters are hoping to make it two flags in three years in 2016.


Testing times

The data is in, and the numbers are very good. Last Wednesday, the Queensland Women’s Academy underwent their first combine test of the pre-season at Churchie Grammar, four weeks into their training program. They were all tested on their sprint, endurance, agility and leap across the night, making sure every step is taken to ensure the best of the best are pulling on the Q shield in the state games next year.

Berry good news

The Coomera Football Club have put pen to paper on the direction of their footy club after appointing Derek Berry as their senior coach for 2016. Berry is currently working as the Director of AFL Excellence at Park Ridge SHS, so has a great understanding of the development process of a player.
