Retiring J-Pod working hard behind scenes

VETERAN Crows forward James Podsiadly is set to retire at the end of the season, but he could have a big say in the team's final hopes before he hangs up the boots.

The 33-year-old (pictured), who played in Geelong's 2011 premiership side after being selected as a 28-year-old in the 2009 rookie draft, has been consigned to Adelaide's SANFL side this season and is yet to play an AFL game.

Even a stunning past two weeks that has seen him take 29 marks and boot 20 goals is unlikely to result in a recall for Saturday's final regular season game against the Cats in Geelong.

Despite Podsiadly's absence from the senior team, forward Josh Jenkins, who booted six goals against West Coast on Sunday, said the J-Pod's contribution had been significant.

"I'll continue to work hard on some of my contested marking and things like that … James Podsiadly's been a great help in the latter part of the year working on those aspects," Jenkins said.
