A TORTUROUS shuttle run that had many players gasping for air at its conclusion has welcomed back Geelong players from their Christmas break.

The majority of the Cats list took part in the run at Elderslie Reserve, where George Horlin-Smith and Josh Caddy were among those to impress.

Patrick Dangerfield, who was only married 48 hours earlier, was also on the track.

However, captain Joel Selwood, who was battling plantar fasciitis before Christmas, wasn’t at Elderslie Reserve, but has continued his rehabilitation during the break.

Billie Smedts was forced from the field with a shoulder problem early in the session.

After speaking with fitness staff for a few moments, the 23-year-old left the ground.

Unable to lift his left arm, Smedts required assistance to have his training top removed before applying ice to the shoulder.

The extent of the damage is unknown at this stage, with the club expecting to know tomorrow whether the injury is serious or not.
