Campo: Smooth transition from player to coach
For some AFL players, the end of their football career leaves an enormous hole in their lives that cannot be replaced. While Scott Camporeale is still getting used to not playing, his retirement has seen a new beginning with the former champion midfielder loving his job as an Essendon assistant coach. “It’s funny not doing the pre-season training and the Tasmania camp training with the boys because one day you are there and the next your not. It’s hard to swallow and makes you realise you are definitely retired and out of the game,” Camporeale said.
Neagle back on track
Young Bomber Jay Neagle is just one week away from resuming full training following an operation to repair stress fractures in his ankle. Neagle was operated on in late October and has been in rehabilitation for the past 10 weeks.
