So, team changes. Happy to see Matt Buntine out - he proved to be a liability in those last two games: we simply need to play the younger developing guys instead of him. Not so happy (broadly speaking) that veteran Sam Reid has returned, however, in the circumstances he's probably the best option as a lock-down style defender for one of the Swans small forwards. Really unhappy that we've suited up Mummy again. He was great against Grundy and the Pies, but I just don't think he has 2 games in a row in him, and we need to be getting experience into Flynn and Briggs. Fingers crossed it doesn't backfire, and leave us with a slow ponderous ruckman against the fleet footed Swans young midfield brigade.
Lose and we go 1-4 and Swans 5-0: who would have thought that in pre-season? Win and we're still 2-3. Swans will be tough as they've been playing well - our only hope is that their younger players mentally relax on what should for them be an easy game, and we can upset them. We'll have to play better than last week, though. Some of our early poor play wasn't punished (dropping marks, fumbling, poor passing) - we need to eliminate that.
Let's go Giants!
