Why wouldn't they?!
Not the most flattering photo of Lance;The major question mark surrounding the Swans is superstar Lance Franklin. 'Buddy' recently had a setback with his calf but has resumed running. He is close to a return to full training, and with the Swans not putting a timetable on his return, will be racing the clock to be available for round one. The only other injury on the club's list is Sam Naismith, who is recovering from the ruptured ACL he suffered in the middle of last year. The ruckman is increasing his training load and progressing nicely, but is still a little way off returning.
He's on track to play in JPK's send off game in 2022.
