    Sydney

    Zak Jones has been selected for his first run of the pre-season, the speedster one of two changes for the Sydney Swans ahead of Friday's JLT Community Series clash with GWS.

    Jones joins fellow midfielder Dan Robinson in the 26-man squad, which will take on the Giants in the final dress rehearsal for Round 1. The pair comes in to replace key talls Callum Sinclair and Aliir Aliir who both suffered ankle injuries in last weekend's win against Brisbane.

    Jones, who's had an interrupted pre-season due to a knee injury, hasn't featured in any competitive hit out this off-season, having sat out of last month's AFLX Tournament and practice match against GWS, as well as JLT1 in Moreton Bay.

    But the 22-year-old gets his chance at Blacktown International Sportspark, the aggressive and line-breaking No.10 adding further grunt to a midfield already boasting Josh Kennedy, Luke Parker and Kieren Jack.

    He's a timely addition as that group prepares to go up against a strong GWS outfit intent on reversing the 26-points inter-club loss to the Swans less than a fortnight ago.

    Swans fans have already seen Robinson in action this pre-season, with the 23-year-old featuring in all three games of AFLX and the practice match against the Giants.

    He was among an unlucky few who were forced to make way for a number of key Swans returning from injury in the squad for JLT1.

    Darcy Cameron, who was a late call-up last week, will be the starting ruckman in place of the injured Sam Naismith.

    Tom McCartin, Jordan Foote, Colin O'Riordan and Ben Ronke have been named as emergencies.

    GWS

    Brett Deledio and Toby Greene will play their first games of the pre-season when the GIANTS take on the Swans in their final JLT Community Series hit-out at Blacktown International Sportspark on Friday night.

    The duo’s return headlines a strong squad for the final pre-season match before round one begins for the GIANTS on March 25 at UNSW Canberra Oval.

    “It’s obviously great to have Toby come in and he’ll play some limited game time, it’s his first hit-out of the year,” coach Leon Cameron said.

    “Brett Deledio’s been training really well so he’ll get a great opportunity and he’ll be unrestricted.”

    Greene - who this week signed a new six-week contract extension - is coming off a toe injury he suffered during the off-season, while veteran Deledio’s training load has been carefully managed across his 14th pre-season.

    Want to see the Giants make a statement. A little touch up of Sydney plus a little physical niggle would be good.

    Umpires one eyed for Sydney so far...only real difference at the moment.

    Like the idea of Tomlinson being developed into a KPD. Athletic enough no doubt

    Agreed...strange decision making all game.

    Early on Toby Green? ran towards goal with the footy at about 40m out and tried to pass instead of going for goals.

    They are also having a lot of trouble locking it in...swans have been extracting and rebounding very easily.

    Greene is the lynchpin. He’s the only guy that offers something elite in the forward line. WTF has happened to Cameron I have NFI

    This great derby between two of the best teams in the comp still hasn't been properly named. I suggest it becomes known each time they meet as the "Harbour Grudge" match, based on the common expression that we can "harbour a grudge" against another party.

    Deserves something a bit more creative and idiosyncratic I reckon GG. It's at least as good as the Showdown nowadays.

    Nah. They tried creative and it wasnt good.

    If they try again we may get something even worse.

    Happy with it the way it is.

    Ha yeah, fair enough. I think you're confusing "creative" with "bad" though.

    Florent with 10 disposals in a single half is quite impressive for him. If he can average about 17 disposals this year it would be a huge leap forward for him.

    This JLT series certainly isn't feeling like the real H&A thing, but I've gotta say it's looking a bit more like it than previous seasons.

    Swans fans;

    Thoughts on Rampe for this year? Tipping him for a better 2018 than 2017?

    It's not a 50m penalty if your face looks funny?
