These injuries are crippling momentum.

I was thinking of a few reserves potentially having played their last games now they have an incredible opportunity to make the most of any life line given or play their hearts out in the reserves if pulling on the jumper means enough to them.

Over to you Swans list it’s time to lift.

People laughed at me when I suggested our training regimen seemed less focused on strength/size than other sides.

Well...

Talk about taking it out of context ffs

I meant selection wise to positional changes more suited , nothing what so ever about happy the player it self being injured permanently or happy for them to have injuries

From RWO so take it with a grain of salt.

I passed by training today and the most interesting thing I learned was that almost all our "injured" players were training, some of them with the fluro cap. That included Tom Hickey (with cap)!! And Robbie Fox. And Sam Naismith (no cap). Doesn't mean they'll play but so fascinating. Didn't they report that Hickey had done his PCL and would be out two months?

I had a brief word to Nick Blakey and got the impression he is likely to play this weekend.

Who is RWO and why would Hickey be training already? Unless just skills work in which case I'm not sure why that would be noteworthy.

And what is the relevance of a fluro cap?

As Robbie Fox was injured before the season started, I would expect Robbie to play a few VFL games to get match fit.
But it is pleasing that he is only a few weeks away from playing seniors.
We sure could use him down back this week.

Fox has been training the last 2 weeks
Given it was finger related, he should have been keeping fit. If he's been back in full training for a few weeks, I'd almost bring him straight in over debuting Gould if it came to that. Hopefully Brand is ok, and McCartin comes back to allow Fox at least 1 vfl game (and Gould at least one more to replicate last weeks good performance). Though by then Rampe should be back too.

Still, in 2 weeks, we could have Rampe, McCartin and Fox all playing, with Dawson freed up even more.

From the same poster.

Tom Hickey was playing in the match sim (or whatever it was). In the ruck. Actually playing. I can't explain it. I'm just telling you what I saw.
