That's three. Lloyd and Mills makes five and that is it. They're carrying a lot more than Richmond's are. Their young players are also developed in a better system because they've come into a team in a premiership window. So i'm not sure how they're comparable in any way really.

Agree its a better system

but every side is comparable, they are in the same competition, we need to compete agaisnt the other teams not age and development profiles

the main point was how impressive they are v hawthorn, just mentioned us because we have a young list,so wasnt trying to compare us v Richmond

My gut feeling is Buddy will be back for the derby in Perth.Miss the next 2 games in Brisbane,then we have the bye then derby. PS Lets hope so.

Let's face it. All here must have realised that a 9 year deal (with out COLA) was a huge risk and likely list disaster in the final years.
I accept the very good reasons SS/SMFC did it.

So the ONLY value Buddy now offers, IS DEFINITELY NOT bums on seats or premierships. It can only be to teach the younger ones what it is like to have structure in the forward half and how much that effects the game.

He ought be nursed through his remaining years carefully, and used more as a instructive leader than someone to drool about kicking an occasional bag for a surprise win!

It is now get him on the park and fit enough for continuity rather than try to be the superstar match winner he once was.

Swans reserves played today according to the club's twitter. In the video was Foot, Wicks, Warner, Amartey, O'Connor, Reynolds (!!), Rowles, McInerney, Maibaum, Gould and Melican.

Not sure what that means for selection, but that leads me to believe Rampe will play.

I couldn't make out Stephens anywhere but Taylor is there. Looks like Hayward for Taylor

Surprised they had enough fit players for a team but at least good to see the guys that have missed out have got some match practice.
