Very interesting to see no changes, and imo, very good. Don't think any players deserved to be dropped, and if a team is winning you might as well back them in.

Will be interesting to see who needs to be tested after the game.

Are we trying to extra cook Sinkers? 5 day break and a knee concern on someone that looks to have bung knees already doesn't seem smart.

Who knows, might be a case of giving a player or two a chance to get up for the game before replacing them.

Wouldn’t surprise me to see a late change or two.

I hope we aren't going old school and going to play injured players to win meaningless games and have several players totally breaking down E.g. Hannebery, Jack, Smith, etc

It's the swans way. We'll add in Rowbottom pretty soon. Ridiculous to keep playing a second year mid that's carried his workload, and on short turn arounds for a lot of the time. And for what?

There are only three games until the end of the season and then he gets a break. If he is feeling fine, let him play out the season.

Our other last couple of games are against Brisbane and Geelong, coming second and third at the moment, so realistically our last chance for a good result this year is this game against Carlton. We should be going hard for the win with our best available team this week, if players need a rest after that then rotate a bit through the final two games that are probably not going to be so competitive.

I really want to get excited about this game.

I really do.

But I can’t.

No debutants to assess, no returning guns, no Stephens, Ling or other interesting youngsters we’re still getting a handle on, its on a Tuesday, in QLD ..... and the opposition is competing with Melbourne for the title of AFL’s most underwhelming perennial duds.

And to top it off, Mrs Quacker (a 25 year member) has indicated she’s considering watching The Block instead. Apparently they’re designing a bedroom. Thrill a minute stuff there folks.

Please assure her that the Block is fake.

Off topic. Besides, who wouldn't want to pay top dollar for a house that's been renovated by sleep-deprived amateurs under extreme time constraints?
I watched one of these houses get "renovated" in my suburb..
At one point i counted 116 tradies etc on site...
While the "contestants" were being filmed talking to a camera just down the road...

A more logical answer then most.
