Adelaide’s players can expect “pretty full-on” training sessions from Monday, once contact has been reintroduced.

Midfield coach Mick Godden told the media on Friday that the Club would need to make use of the time it had before the season recommences on June 11.

“They’ll be put to the sword straight away,” Godden said.

“We won’t waste a second of what we’ve got… (there’s) not a lot of opportunity to go full contact (before Round Two).

“We’ve been planning that the last week and will be ready to go on Monday.”

Adelaide’s senior players have been running training sessions for the past week in groups no larger than eight, with coaches observing from a distance.

“It’s something all clubs strive for - that ownership of your own Club and own team (from the players),” Godden said.

“This is an opportunity for us to do that and they’ve taken it with both hands.”

Following several staffing changes to the Crows’ coaching line-up, Matthew Clarke has taken on the responsibilities of forward coach and Brent Reilly has stepped into the role of defensive coach.

With players now back at the Club, Godden described excitement as the number one feeling surrounding the group.

“Players love being around players… zoom meetings can only do so much,” he said.

“What we’re seeing now is a lot of lads excited to be out there and having a kick.”
