Is anyone able to say why Brendan is not competing this season? Is he injured?
Also agree it is great to see Kailani is going to compete internationally, it is a shame she didn't get a JGP.
When is the last time we've seen this kind of jump arsenal from an Aussie skater?
Watch out also for Cameron Hemmert he is coming back off injury and landing 3 Lutz, 3 loop and 3 Toe (in practice) and caught the eye of Brain Orser when he was out here.
He is Currently training in Canada and will be at the JGP in Istanbul. We have a couple to watch .. It's nice
Thank you for the updates.

Wow O'Brien and Merriman are competing five times
But the Crystal Skate and NRW Trophy have overlapping dates - can they really do both events?
ISA have chosen to season rank based on Wintersun this year but it's only one comp and it only improved current rankings in the pool and added newly qualified people to the pool.
Any Skater can have have a bad skate we all know that.
Season runs from July to July. this years 4CC and worlds were last years season.
Wintersun was in this years season but right at the start where some of these athletes are taking a well earn break. Therefore the results at winternsun really do not give any representation of proficiency and are not a good indicator of ranking for the International skater.
You have valid points, but my one question is then why has this decision been made to send the selected men?
I think if you are considering other previous events both David, Brendan and Jordan deserve spots at the JGP events.
Since all three have performed well over the past year at some point, even with all of there inconsistent performances. I believe from looking at there PPCs all three of them would be evenly matched in TES if they skated clean.
My only concern is Cameron Hemmert considering he hasn't competed in nearly a whole year.
Good Luck to Greg and Danny!!
They are in the same boat as everyone in needing the Magic TES to get them to Worlds next year, I guess they have to take every opportunity they can to get that.
They have put so much in to their training by living in the US the past 12 months, guess they are just going to run with it! Good on on them and Good luck to them!!
I agree - hope Dani and Greg have a great season.
When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
All the best of luck to him!
JGP Number 2 at Lake Placid coming up this week.
Good luck to Brooklee Han, Jordan Dodds and Eliza Smyth.
Also to Maddie Parker who skates at Canterbury and Macquarie these days but represents NZ!!
