Ros Lyon mics over Fox Footy, St Kilda Saints training, video, breaking news
Ross ‘the Boss’ Lyon is back in the managerial seat at St Kilda some 12 years after leaving the club
And Fox Footy microphoned the veteran trainer at a recent training session for interesting insight and his lighter side.
The rare touch, shown at half-time in the Saints’ training game against Essendon, initially showed Lyon’s relaxed demeanor.

“You guys are on the track more than some of our players,” Lyon told a referee.
The St Kilda boss later quipped to some players: “How easy is League Footy? Train for a week, then put it on a list, bang.”
Lyon also posed: “Has Dougal come back from the wedding? Oh, is he here? That’s good.”
The mic also caught a glimpse of Lyon’s coaching on the job in an exchange with young Saint Jack Peris.
“It was two-on-one,” Lyon said after practice. “In the end it looked like you weren’t guarding anything. That’s fine, you’re still a young player, keep it up.”
The next clip shows Lyon praising Peris after the following exercise: “See the difference? Then it was like a 2 on 2, it didn’t matter how much space there was, there was nobody.
“It ended up with massive, really good, great learning.”
Former Collingwood manager Nathan Buckley believes we will see more of Lyon’s funny side in his third stint as manager.
“He’s always a little bit quirky and has a bit of a sense of humor,” Buckley said on Fox Footy.
“I think we’ll see that more of him in this iteration and he’ll do better.”
