The Blues ramped up their preparations for the 2016 season with another high-intensity session at Ikon Park on Wednesday.

With the NAB Challenge opener against Hawthorn just over three weeks away, the open session had a heavy focus on match simulation, with star midfielder Marc Murphy returning to full training.
