Gonna have to watch this on replay given I'm well away from reception on Sunday. Hoping we don't really stuff about with it and just put our R1 team out
Never like assuming but Davis and Whitfield most likely won't play this week but should be right for Rd.1 meaning Buntine will play this week

But agree with you bangers, will be as good as Rd.1 line up after dusting off the cobwebs last week

Buntine can play this week as long as we don't have to play him during the H&A season, I shudder to think of that lack of speed and turning circle in a proper game

Really looking forward to seeing how the boys throw themselves into this game and if there is any significant change to the game plan adopted over the last couple of years.
I’m particularly interested to see if they can prevent so many easy coast to coast goals against them. On the flip side, will be great to see the boys play with the confidence to take more chances out of defence and score a few more goals.

Team is out at 6.20 so I will have a go and the teams have had 26 named

Idun named on the field as I think the coaches have hopes for him with Keefe, Perryman and Shipley to rotate as defenders
I only have the 1 ruck but it could be that Buckley misses if Briggs is up for half the game
Hoping to see Shipley and O'Halloran see plenty of game time as they are close to next in line and will need the experience
Also I think this will be the test to see if Bruhn is good for a rd 1 spot and I am hoping he impresses

At Greater Western Sydney, uncapped ruckman Kieren Briggs will lead the ruck against Sydney at Giants Stadium with Matthew Flynn a test for round one with an ankle sprain and Shane Mumford an emergency.

Former skipper Phil Davis will play in the reserves after overcoming knee surgery.

So Hill, Daniels, Preuss, Hogan, Flynn, Whitfield and Davis missing from best 22. Just the SEVEN before the season has started. Blimey.
So we’re missing KPD, KPF, both Rucks, #1 rated player, and two of our three top small forwards.

By contrast, look at the Cats, Pies, Tigers, Bombers all at close to full strength.

I’m not buying the “bad luck” narrative anymore re training, conditioning and medical.

We’ve clearly got some sort of systemic problem that Leon has failed to identify and/or address.

Patience is wearing very thin, particularly after the failures of 2020.

Personally I don't mind Briggs playing today, with no NEAFL last season he had no footy at all
Flynn showed us enough last week, Briggs plays a different style so will be interesting to see if he brings it to the 1sts

Also pleasing to see they only played 2 talls + Lloyd and Finlayson as a sub, Himmelberg has the opportunity in the 1st half to secure his spot for Rd.1
Finlayson will also be cover in the ruck as a sub if needed, so can be brought into the game even if HH playing well

Even with our injuries if Perryman can show his attacking game off the back line can only be a positive and later in the season team up with Whitfield as the 2 attacking players - in addition to Ash

Dry weather footy today is fantastic, cobwebs are dusted off from last week. Skills will be up and should be more free flowing

Hoping for some bright spots in this game and no injuries
Not sure who is missing from the Swans best 22 apart from Buddy but hopefully we see an improvement in ball movement out of D50, sticking tackles and winning the contested ball

I know I can be mr negative, but I wouldn’t mind if we lost today. Last year we beat Richmond in the trial and Geelong in Rd 1.... then they got way ahead of themselves imo.
