Naismith injured at training - out for the season.
Tippet - retired.

Sinclair now the number 1 ruckman.

I rate Sinclair ahead of our last two premiership ruckmen (Roughead and Nankervis), so I don’t see it hurting their chances too much (I didn’t have them as my flag pick anyway but they’ll still be up there).

Also, I rate their new #2 ruckman Darcy Cameron reasonably highly too. Good kid from Claremont.

How ridiculous they cant sign a free agent from a lower division.
Well this is the argument for it as the Swans at list lodgement had Tippett, Naismith, Sinclair Cameron and Amartey as our ruckmen, which admittedly isn't a brilliant ruck division but it is serviceable. With Tippett retiring due to injury and then Naismith getting an ACL we are down to Sinclair, Cameron and Amartey, and of those three only one of them has any experience at an AFL level.

In an ideal world the Swans would be able to pick up another ruckman from the state leagues (so a mature ager) due to Tippett retiring. Unfortunately that isn't the rules though, so we are in a bit of a pickle.

The problem is having to lodge your list 5 months before the season AFL house that busy?

Its not like naismith is a match winner anyway...expect towers and aliir to ruck alot now..they wont win many contests but can you imagine guys like nankervis and sandi chasing them round.

We will essentially have an extra mid throughout the game
