Already ruled out for the season.
That is true,a gut feeling. And perhaps I am dreaming,lol and not sure Buddy playing in the last couple of rounds would be a good thing any way for the team structure.BUT Buddy playing a game,Paps in a forward pocket and the team focus on Paps as the key forward I like.But as I said I am dreaming.

Gotta love the fact that there's drama after a win.
Hopefully the boys won't be affected by what's happened/happening off feild.

If Sinclair is fit to play, I can only see Mills coming in and Thurlow being the unlucky one. He played some strong footy on the wing but has shifted down back the last few games and has been fine but can't see the other defenders losing their place. The only other option would be Aliir moving out of defence again but I hope that doesn't happen as he's finally playing his ideal spot as the intercepting 3rd tall.

Need Mccartin to play back so Aliir can come in as the chop out in front of Mckay.
Will be even more important if Mills is still out.
McCartin has improved so much as a forward this year. I wish we would just leave him there and let him develop, not keep switching him around and delaying his natural progression.

IF there is one team /club I desire for a Swans WIN... then this is IT!

On paper.... yes ok .. but that has been the last 20 yrs since Kouta ,... even Judd couldn't fix it!

Nah a barometer of how a much better team/coach/ method works.

I say continue to try out the fringe players. Not the super young recruits Stephens (but they might risk it) or Gould or Warner
(Hoping like hell McClean gets a bigger brief at FF and in... even if he disappoints!)

1 Parker .....is worth 1.5+ Cripps!

Go the Swannies!!!!

you are kidding, right?
Would be nice to win another one before the end of the season......that being said I have never looked forward to a season finishing more than this one.

Will be interesting at selection tonight, I feel like there might be few surprises coming. Sinclair may need a rest before the last two so it wouldn't surprise to see Amartey get a run, a short scrimmage match won't rule him out I would think, largely it will be down back I guess where we see the most discussion. If Mills returns we then need another to omit. Would Fox be due a rest? Maybe a possibility for Brand to return and gain a bit of height down back

I think with changes this week, and the last two, form will not play a big role in who goes in and out.

Expect Carlton to win this but it wouldn't shock me if we get on top. The Blues have looked soft at times this year and we've been able to capitalise on teams who haven't gone in hard (GWS, Melbourne, Adealaide)

I think we win with ease, Blues 1 goal in their last 4 second half quarters is dismal for them, McCartin looking a strong option down back and the team beginning to really click. That Freo performance was the exception not the rule and we've looked superb outside that for the last few weeks.

3-4 goal win.

I disagree, my friend. I think that an extended spell at CHB both strengthens the team at that end, and gives him valuable experience in when to time leads, leading patterns, etc while at the same time developing his marking by reading the play from behind the ball. Even if it is 12 months, I think we would either have found an irreplaceable CHB or a vastly improved CHF. The only problem we have is what to do with the train wreck of a forward line that would leave us with.

4 day break for both teams so no excuse.
JPK may struggle after such a break but so will Cripps who looks sore.
