Adelaide midfielder Chayce Jones has lent on senior trio Rory Sloane, Brad Crouch and Matt Crouch to improve his skills.
With the players broken up into groups of eight, Jones has trained in the midfield ahead of the Round Two game against Port Adelaide on June 13.
“We’ve been working on technique, stoppages… that sort of stuff,” Jones said.
“The knowledge they (Sloane and the Crouch brothers) bring, each plays a different style of footy.
“To learn from the three of them is amazing.
“I’ll take any chance I can to play against them in training or play with them on game day.”
When asked which player’s style he has tried to emulate, the 20-year-old said he was more focussed on developing his own.
“It’s hard to say which one, you try and play your own game,” he said.
“I guess Sloaney, the way he moves at stoppages is the big one… and the Crouch brothers love the training and getting to work, making sure to set an example.
“There’s bits of all three of them.”
Jones copped a hit from key defender Daniel Talia on Monday during the Club’s first contact session in nearly three months.
Despite being winded, Jones said he was just happy to have contact training return.
“We were a bit sore (the day after), but it’s something you get used to,” he said.
“After a few months without it, it’s certainly something a bit different, but it’s something I’ve been looking forward to.”
