    Swans have announced that Dan Robinson will be upgraded alongside Lloyd and Richards. Bit interesting, haven't heard a lot about him during the year in the Ressies.

    Made NEAFL Team of the Year in both 2013 and 2014.
    Just below Lloyd as our best reserves midfielder in 2013.
    Was prolific in the first half of 2014 with some big numbers, smaller numbers in the 2nd half as he took on a tagging role with some success.

    From memory I think he was doing some tagging roles this year in the reserves.

    When Heeney, Davis and Hiscox are added to the list officially, I think that will give us 13 NSW players on the list. 11 of whom will be on the senior list. Not sure of the actual record but I can't remember more than that being on our list in a long while.

    Getting big numbers in the first half of the year then moved more into a defensive role in the 2nd half.

    Well done

    Seems like it was either Biggs or Robinson for elevation.

    No, it was either Robinson or Naismith. We are only allowed one 3rd year rookie.

    and it seems Biggs got an offer to return to Melbourne. So a bit of Meh really on that front.

    But pleased to see more NSW talent onto our senior list.

    Now just to see what happens with AJ and Marsh as they are the two remaining players uncontracted

    From this announcement are we to construe a defined strategy in anticipation of Post COLA ie: as many NSW young guns as possible?

    That's enough for me.

    $1m a year for seven years, then? :D

    You would think the aim is to get the % of the list made up with as many NSW as possible to prove the worth of the academy.

    13 of 44 is a great % breakdown

    Congratulations, sounds like he has put in the hard work in the reserves, named in the best many times and doing an apprenticeship with a tagging role to learn the good habits of the best mids and how to apply lots of defensive pressure. Hope he plays well preseason comp and gets a debut next year.

    He was compared with JPK as a big bodied midfielder last year so our midfield stocks are looking good folks so we need to stop fretting.

    and Mitchell.

    I'll take those odds. For now.

    Robinson's not negative. He's been asked to play a couple of negative roles, but he's a classy ball handler and user. And he's fit enough to go all day.

    I've always found him a negative kind of player. He's very limited in what he can do as a footballer (from what I've seen so far) and I just think we've had enough of the Robinson, Foote etc kind of midfielders.

    Please don't mention Robinson and Foote in the same sentence. They are not comparable. Robbo's not in Florent's class, but he's a similar style of player who will get a lot more of it, this year, than Florent.

    Robinson is better than Foote but they are the same kind of player. We have enough grunt and contestedbeasts in our midfield to last us a lifetime, what we need is some class and/or pace on the outside. I'm thinking the Florent, Cunningham, Towers type of players. They will be more important to us winning the flag this year when we start coming up against the likes of Adelaide and GWS in finals who have a far greater ability to spread than we do. I could not name one single Robinson highlight from any of his games, reserves or seniors, whereas I could name a few of Florent's from just his first year.

    Robinson's not a contested beast. If you're looking for highlights though, watch his ball use in tight. He can't shake off opponents like Kennedy, but he's a one touch ball handler. He's nothing like Foote. And he has far better class than Towers or Cunningham.

    Robinsons a poor, poor, oh so poor man's Hannebery imo.

    Don't think he's hopeless or anything but wasn't as solid as I remembered

    Foote = Should get Delisted
    Robinson = Good AFL depth. All clubs need some players like Robinson. I am happy for now with him on our list.

    A lot of underrating of Robinson going on here. Wait until he gets some continuity. The boy can play.

    I have to be honest, I didn't think he was much. But Roosy made some comments about him and pointed to what to look for in his game. He flies under the radar, but he's quality.
