    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this. I walked past training this morning, a couple of observations.
    - The only draftee training with the main group was Blakey. Not surprising as it was the first day at the club for the rest, who were kicking balls to each other, Longmire taking time to individually chat with each of them. The only one I didn't spot/recognise was Durak Tucker (might be on the red eye from Perth).
    - Rose, Smith, Cameron, Sinclair and Hayward (who looked to have put on a bit of upper body size) were running laps and not training with the main group.
    - Ronke and Rampe leading the running and sprinting drills.
    - Ling seemed to be off with a small group with Armarty, while Stoddard was with the main group and looking sharp in the skill drill. Clarke also putting in a big effort.
    - Understandably the new recruits looked physically smaller than even the second year players. Rowbottom (I think it was him) a little bigger.
    -- The recruits were taken off individually to do interviews so hopefully a little move coverage in that respect this year.

    SydneySwans insta story has a rare video of a Sam Reid sprinting with the main group.

    It looks like Bat and Bowl oval on Cleveland street opposite Sydney High School.

    Feel they have already exceeded what dribbled out of HQ last preseason.

    Watching Dan's interview he seems a lot more switched on that I thought he would be. Pretty happy to have him at the swans because worst case scenario, he doesn't play much due to injury but I think there is a lot he can teach the younger guys. A real coach in waiting imo.

    Some awful news as someone clearly broke into Aliir's house a few nights ago and attacked him leaving him with this horrible disfigurement on his head.

    Anyone have news on Ling? How is his toe? Is he running hard yet?

    I heard some really good things about him even though he was injured most of last year. Will he be best 22?

    Yeah he has bulked up considerably. Midfield role written all over him for 2019 & on.

    I keep hearing a voice over from David Attenborough marvelling at this rare sight and telling us all how lucky we are to observe such a unique ritual.
