That's terrible. Whatever happened to "journalists" or sub-editors or whoever?

This is a great initiative by the club. Technique is key but so is the mental side to it. All about "seeing" the target in your mind's eye.

For what it's worth, Here is a book that has really helped me beat the putting yips in golf. Many of the same principles would apply to set shots at goal.

He stresses the importance of working on technique in practice. In the heat of battle it's about having a routine, being decisive and, above all else, fixing the target in your mind's eye. Then allowing your body to respond to the target.

I might send Ben Dixon a copy because if he's not aware of these principles yet he should be. Works like a charm.

Ben Dixon to put every St Kilda player through a rigorous technical exam over pre-season
JAY CLARK, Herald Sun

ST KILDA’S new goal kicking coach Ben Dixon will put every player at the club through a rigorous technical examination over the preseason.

The former Hawthorn sharpshooter turned down advances from Port Adelaide to help fix the Saints’ set shot woes which, in part, cost Alan Richardson’s men a finals berth last season.

The Saints were ranked second last in accuracy (45.5 per cent) in 2016 but have agreed to prioritise the area over summer training to help jump into the eight next year.

Don't they mean 2017?


No, I think we were well and truly last in 2017. :(

If that's not a mistake, it's one of the finest bits of irony in any post this year, bratty! :D

"Oh shut up."
