Does anyone know what line balta is training with? Thought he would have been a great choice to take Ellis’ wing spot but suspect with Rance gone he is most likely training with the backline?

We had a 3 hour session today including full-on match simulation/intraclub. Dusty got gang tackled and threw the ball away. Miller played on Jack.

Lambert on Ch7 said our list is in good shape (excl. KMac). Nank should be back to full training next week.

Dusty, Tigers like you’ve never seen them

A Tiger never loses its stripes – unless of course it is covered in mud.

Richmond players were barely recognisable at times after wrapping up their Queensland pre-season camp with a mud-soaked obstacle course.

A team-building exercise at a facility on the Gold Coast, players worked together to complete a 9km course encompassing 67 obstacles.

Everything from climbing over fences, walking across balancing beams, crawling through pools of mud, completing ropes courses, swimming through ponds and slipping down water slides was on the agenda.

A six-man team which included premiership players Tom Lynch, David Astbury and Nick Vlastuin was first across the line at the finish.

The course was one of a few activities players completed that didn’t have a lot to do with traditional football skills.

A game of bubble soccer also found its way onto the schedule during the camp.

“We played a bit of bubble soccer and you see the schoolyard bullies come from behind and smack you in the back and that sort of thing but it’s all a bit of fun,” Richmond midfielder Kane Lambert said.

“It’s another way to build relationships with a bit of fun and a bit of hard work.”

The reigning premiers are now less than a month away from their first pre-season match against Collingwood in Wangaratta on Sunday, March 1.

Just 46 days remain before the Tigers unfurl their 2019 premiership flag and begin a new campaign against Carlton in the home-and-away season-opener on Thursday, March 19.
