I still think Duryea is a valuable player in the lineup. Having said that, Cleary has been very good for Footscray and deserves a chance.I dont think Cleary is a swap for Gardner though. The Swans have 2 to 3 Key forwards ( Franklin,McDonald,Amartey) - I cannot see Bruce not coming in unless Naughton goes back - and he won't if there is the choice to bring in a tall.
I reckon if Cleary comes in, Vandermeer will go out. If Gardner is out, Bruce is in. Scott out Cleary in is the other option, and move Vandermeer up the ground.
Would like to see us try 2 talls plus Cleary. I don't think our 3rd tall defender is doing enough to justify selection... well even arguably our 2nd tall isn't really either. Pies and Port get away with playing one genuine tall and 2 medium defenders. Surely we can try two talls plus a medium. Will give us a lot more run coming out of the back line.
