Should rename this thread to 'Should of God'. Pretty apt title really. It's a bit like the Essendon game, Swans just turned the game around and all the luck went their way as Adelaide slowed to a crawl and tried to hold on to the game.

Lord Papley is my favorite swans player now, absolutley love the way this kid goes about it. He will be a one club player too.
Yep completely agree, he's pretty close to my favourite now too. I love watching him go about it and his enthusiasm is contagious! He plays with such footy smarts, its crazy that he went through to the rookie draft. I will miss him this week.

Just goes to show how good his goal was last week to win the game when he was playing under significant duress with his knee injury. What a little champ. Looking forward to watching him play in finals this year. Reckon he's going to make up for his quiet GF.

Just thought id pop back in an say that Tommy has been the best small forward in the comp for the last half of the season, i quite often forget hes only a second year player. Hes probably in the top 10 players of his draft year, and he was picked as a rookie.

If McGlynn wasnt injured at the start of last year i wonder how different things would be, im sure he would have eventually cracked into the seniors but its certainly fast tracked his development.

Ahhhh what a guy, get well soon brother Tommy and get yourself up and about for the first final.

Papley debuted in Round 1 last year.
