Coach Richard Laidler gave his thoughts on the sessions, “The boys have been training hard these past two training sessions. It’s good to see the experienced and inexperienced boys working hard together. We have really been working on our basic fitness and skills. Now we will work on some game plans and work on them till we get to the International Cup. I think if the boys keep working hard over next couple of months we will shock a few people on how our standard of play has lifted. Its has been great to have some of our player’s experience first hand Australian Rules Footy by playing in some teams around Victoria. They have come back and lifted the standard of our training. Keep an eye out for the Samurais’”
The Japanese squad will be announced in mid June, including a small number of players currently playing in Australia. The squad is scheduled to play a practice game on August 3rd against the Tokyo Goannas.
