There's more than you think. You can add Brayden Crossley, Brad Scheer, Mackenzie Willis and former academy member Kwaybe Boakye to that playing list as well. No doubt they'll be very determined to prove a point when we play them this season.

This was one of the positive outcomes that was expected when the northern academies were established. It was assumed the local clubs which compete in the levels below our AFL side would benefit from greatly from former academy members who choose to stay and you can see the majority of ex Suns on Southport's list come from our academy. It's nice to see ex players who hail from other states like Ryan Davis (NSW), Matt Shaw (VIC), Seb Tape (SA) and Mackenzie Willis (TAS) have also elected to stay on the GC and that kind of commitment will continue to raise the overall standard of local footy here. The same goes for our former coaches like Daniel, Primus, Lappin and even Malceski (Labrador) in the pursuit of raising the standard of local football on the Gold Coast. It's a massive positive not only for the local league but also for our future players because they'll be exposed to a much higher level of teammate/coach at a younger age.
1000% agree

I believe I read somewhere that teams will be split into 2 conferences, 6 teams from QLD/NSW put together, playing each twice. With 16 games total, that would mean remaining 6 games vs VFL teams, 3 at home and 3 in Victoria.

Hope you don't mind the intrusion. Swans board are also ignoring the VFL name of this comp. This is a decision based on 'historical' references....or whatever. :)
I'd love to hear the thinking behind the "historical references"

Hope the twos boys can put on a decent performance against the Lions, Good barometer to where we're at.

We played them 4 times in NEAFL 2019


April: 159 - 62
June: LOSS 69 - 39 ***** Exact same score as today weirdly
July: LOSS 96 - 17
August: LOSS 91 - 66


So hopefully means we've improved at the same rate they have?? too long a bow?

I saw number 16 who I reckon is Jack Johnston.
Has been training with the team from what I've seen in club videos.
Unsure of the other participants though.
Pescud probably?
I was hoping you had both team lineups, as we’re getting nothing from the Lions by way of updates or information.

Did he mention anything about the Lions as we’re getting nothing from our club.

Would be interested in how many academy players played, if anyone has the team lineups?
This may help you a little but not the full squad
As you know the Lions did not post a side

Bit of a worry when one of our development forwards seems to be on holidays when the others are slaving away in pre season games. Surely he should be using every opportunity to bring his game up to the level required

I feel for Farrar. He played as a key defender. No fun to compete with 200cm, 101kg Ballenden while being 191cm and skinny 79kg. It looks like Fyfe had the honour to play on Ballenden too :cool:
