Aussie Rules: Cameron ready to fire for Cats

Gun forward Jeremy Cameron says he is fitter than ever heading into the new AFL season and is hopeful of taking his game to another level.

The Cats are priced at 11/1 to win the 2022 AFL grand final and a fit and firing Cameron would give their chances of doing so a huge boost.

Disappointing 2021

Cameron made a big-money switch from Greater Western Sydney to the Cats ahead of the 2021 season but the campaign could have gone better as he picked up three soft-tissue injuries.

It goes without saying that the stop-start nature of the season prevented him playing the kind of footy that convinced the Cats to sign him on a bumper five-year deal.

However Cameron has had a great pre-season so far and on the eve of the campaign has fired an ominous warning to the rest of the comp.

"I feel like I'm so far in front it's not funny compared to last year," Cameron said.

"I guess coming to a new club last year there were a lot of things happening, it was a bit of a later start. When you're in the moment you feel like you're in a good space anyway and you want to play your best footy, you want to train as hard as you can.

"But when you compare the two (pre-seasons) they're completely different. It's pretty exciting for me and the club."

Gym work

In an attempt to make sure there is no repeat of the hamstring issues that have dogged him, Cameron says he is been doing a lot of leg work in the gym and it is already paying off.

"Normally I roll into pre-season and my hamstrings are fine and I roll into the season and they're fine, and honestly I don't do too much hamstring stuff," he added.

"But for now it's been a really great focus over the past six to eight months – or even a year – and the results speak for themselves.

"I feel really strong in the gym and in my lower body and I think that's really important. I'll be keeping that going for the rest of my career, not just this year."
