    So I take it that the Swans are not going to draft Sam then?

    Another loss. Between the NEAFL and AFL sides we've lost 7 Grand Finals since 2012.....

    Not the kind of culture you want around the club...

    Awesome post Ralphyboy, all the best for your son and his footballing future regardless whether he gets drafted or not. It sounds like you’ve all enjoyed the ride!

    The kind of culture that gets you to 8 Grand Finals in 7 years?

    Southport finished top and deserved their premiership. AFL aligned NEAFL teams play each other 3 or 4 times during the season as compared to playing other teams once. AFL clubs probably asked for this lopsided fixture.

    Pretty sure the AFL clubs are more interested in player development than premiership.

    Indeed but the players who represent the club for most or all at that level would still want success. Not success where the other team loses their score of course but at least where they can field the same team that got them there or close to.

    So Rose lit it up huh?

    Are we absolutely sure this kid can't make it at senior level?

    Most supporters lost patience with Gary Rohan and I would see the same attitude towards Rose. I didn't think he got a fair crack this year. He put in a fair effort when selected but it just didn't come off in execution. He was injury cover at the time so not really selected on merit (though in good form). He looks a million bucks at times no denying his talent but the knock is doing the team things. Can't see him getting another contract but if he does then give him a stint at senior level and see how he goes not just one or two random matches.

    Must say I was more VB impressed with Rose this year, as he has learned to chase and tackle. No doubting his talent.

    Prolly too little, too late.

    Rose has been on the list for four years now and hasn't made any real inroads in to the senior team. With Papley, Hayward and Ronke he has actually been overtaken by a new player each year for a spot in the forward line. He isn't going to play midfield at AFL level. So... yeah, I think it is clear that there isn't space for him in the squad going forwards.

    Yep that is my broad take on him as well. Would not surprise me to see some other team give him a lifeline as a rookie player, but I can't see how he will fit into the Swans First 22.

    That's my take on Rohan!

    I am pretty sure on the broadcast they said Rose has 15 or 16 clearances.

    Probably has his cards stamped but at least he went out swinging.

    He's like Ryan Davis and Andrew Boston. Tried and failed at AFL level, performed extremely well in a NEAFL grand final. No shame in that

    I'll bookmark this post & remind you about it when Clarke is up on stage as a top 3 in the B & F.

    I am very excited about this fellow as I think he will thrive on the fact we chased him for a role. He will play seniors round 1 if all is well with his fitness.
