BCD: bye mini-breaks

Crows players and coaches enjoyed a few days off last week ahead of the bye.

For some, it was a chance to sneak in a quick getaway, while others preferred quiet time with family and friends closer to home.

Take a look at what the players got up to …

Rory Atkins returned to Melbourne and caught up with a familiar face.

Eddie Betts also had a reunion with an ex-teammate, hanging out with one-time Carlton colleague and current Melbourne Demon, Jeff Garlett, and his family.

Curly might’ve bumped into rookie Alex Keath, who was also in the Clare Valley, enjoying a bike ride along the Riesling Trail and a meal with girlfriend Laura.

Young ruckman Reilly O’Brien returned home to Victoria for a round of golf with mates. Judging by the caption on his photo, it may not quite have been the most successful round though!

Reaffirming his love for South Australia’s beautiful coastlines, Sloaney and fiancé Belinda ventured down to Victor Harbor with assistant coach James Podsiadly and his wife Claire.

The quartet took in some waves and did a spot of sightseeing too with this stunning photo taken from the Bluff overlooking Petrel Cove.


Nice to get away to relax and unwind for a few days with this one @belriv at the tog of the Bluff in Victor.

Whilst Sloaney was out on the rocks and in the surf, Daniel Talia preferred a more traditional winter experience on the South Coast, checking in for a pit spot and coffee in Port Elliot with fiancé Megan.
