AFL teams must adjust to training changes, says Beveridge

Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge says players and coaches will have to be flexible and resilient throughout the season as AFL clubs adjust to another change to training protocols.

After the positive COVID-19 test of Essendon’s Conor McKenna, contact training is now only permitted in small groups, with clubs’ full-squad training sessions now non-contact.

“We’ve all got to adhere to the restrictions and the slight adjustment in the protocols and in that you just take solace in the fact that you’re one of 18 [clubs] who just need to adjust,” Beveridge told reporters on Tuesday.

“… It probably compromises what you’d like to do, absolutely, but it’s such a different season, you need to be resilient – it’s survival of ingenuity as much as it is being resilient from the physical and mental point of view.
