Fremantle Dockers coach Ross Lyon took to Twitter today to answer fans questions from AFL HQ.
Midfield rotations and positional flexibility have been a point of emphasis for Freo this preseason, but Lyon added that it wasn’t just the on-ballers adjusting to new positions.
We’re looking to be more flexible. Currently train backs up as forwards intermittently throughout the weeks. https://t.co/ufYlix8tMN— AFL (@AFL) February 4, 2016
The excitement about Freo’s second year players from the fans this preseason has been well documented, and Lyon said that while it was difficult to name only a few, he’d been impressed with what they’ve displayed.
Tough call but Weller Blakely and Langdon in second year are impressing. https://t.co/MHxISS3YfX— AFL (@AFL) February 4, 2016
Lyon also spoke about the evolution of the game, and what influences other sports have on football.
Already occurring - basketball, soccer, lacrosse are already big influences. https://t.co/As5d7Achod— AFL (@AFL) February 4, 2016
After a preseason full of questions about the two, Lyon provided some insight on how Brownlow Medallist Nat Fyfe will be used and the status of star recruit Harley Bennell.
Imminently for Harley. https://t.co/LQpkIPEvXH— AFL (@AFL) February 4, 2016
And finally, in a surprising turn of events Ross was also asked to explain this outfit and seemed as surprised as the rest of us.
OMG! Did I play in them?? https://t.co/PXH5pg3PZu— AFL (@AFL) February 4, 2016
