Because Clarke (and everyone on the playing list) are wearing the red and white jumper, representing the Sydney Swans, training and playing their heart out to win us games, get into the finals and win a premiership.
We beat West Coast in round 12 this year. Arguably our best game of the year. So you if you were wondering who to bring after that game fair enough.The weird thing is every year we create a best 22 and it is really tough to do so, with a heap of players that probably should be in the team missing out and we all get excited by our amazing depth.
Then come round 12, a lot of us are wondering who we can bring into the team as our team is performing badly and we don't have anyone to replace the worst offenders.
I'm pretty confident that Stephens and Gould will be regulars next season. Don't ask me who they will replace though.Rampe McCartin Mills
Dawson Aliir Lloyd
Florent Kennedy Blakey
Heeney Reid Hayward
Franklin Sinclair Papley
Naismith Parker Hewett
Rowbottom Cunningham ............
Fighting for 2 spots are a shitload of players.
I think they'll both get a bit if a run in NEAFL first. Like Rowbottom last year when he was absolutely tearing it up. Learn the systems, get to know each other, the coaches get to know you in match conditions. Get some match fitness.I'm pretty confident that Stephens and Gould will be regulars next season. Don't ask me who they will replace though.
Already been very good at senior SANFL level against men so don't think he'll take too long to aclimatise, ready for R1 along with the trimmed down Gould!I feel like Stephens might take until his 3rd season to get his body and confidence up fully.
He says his favorite player is Josh Kelly. Kelly was serviceable in his first two years but didnt really become a gun until his 3rd season.
i know players aged 25 should maybe be reaching their peak but who here has potential to be an A grader? Interesting to hear people’s opinions on this!Loving our under 25 talent/best 22:
- E Taylor
- L Taylor

Personally, I believe Heeney Paps and Dawson will get several AA awards sooner rather than later and Blakey COR and Rowbottom will have major breakthrough years this year! I don’t know much about our new recruits but Beatson is such a brilliant recruiter, I’m sure a few of them will reach that A standard!
All said, it’s a bright future for the swans! ️
with a little luck, in a couple of years when back 6 has been worked out, Dawson will play as a high half forward and kick 40+.. and plenty of goal assists, contested marks, tackles .. and hardly any behindsDawson is a great piece for any team but don't really see him being an AA level player. Especially when the AA team ignore Sydney defenders.
