Only a kid and a lot of water to go but I hope we picked right in Stephens
Definitely has a touch of class and can lay a tackle. Maybe doesn't quite have the pace to be a top player but we'll see. I'll be surprised if he's not at least best 22 for many years.

The coaches shouldn’t be patting them on the back and saying, young team, inexperienced, inconsistent, blah, blah, they shouldn’t have given that game up but they did....good teams ,find a way....So no cherry picking the review, especially for established players like Hayward, alir, thurlow, Sinclair, & Reid, Papley, & Cunningham...a long way to go with lots of work to do. any of this media crap about a rising Swans should be treated with contempt...nothing is given, it’s got to be taken....disappointing result to loose to those front runners...

you are kidding, right?
Lloyd cost us more with his sh*t disposal, zero penetration, not junk kick stats, oppo players literally run round him like a witches hat, puts own players under the pump constantly.
I thought it was Lloyds' poorest performance of the year. He was slow in reaction and skill execution not on. Thought Hayward was iffy as well and was not keen on Melican today.

Most of the others all did well, bit disappointed for Bell, he started well and looked like we were going to get an actual look at what he might bring. Rowbottom very good, McInerny awesome, Stephens got the pill and used is well enough, JPK and Parker both solid. McCartin really good and has a bit of mongrel in him that you see from time to time. Being the youngest in the draft year has meant even more upside for Tom as he continually develops.

Looking at our game, it seems communication throughout is a bit of an issue. So many times multiple swans go the same ball, twice players run down from behind, is anyone talking? As we improve, we will see less of passages of play where we are pushing forward then one bad hanball or decision taking that extra step will disappear and we can turn those opportunities into points.

Lets not forget who was missing today as well.

I hope this is a good springboard into next season.

Just checked the stats to confirm I wasn't dreaming... 27 disposals at 96% efficiency with 1 clanger. I get that his kicks lack penetration but fu** me Lloyd's been underrated this season.
The stats dont show you his game. His game today wasn't rubbish, but is was not up to the standard we had seen for the previous 4 or 5.

What a silly statement, 460 meters gained ( highest swan). Of his 27 disposals only 1 was considered ineffective. We will take if of your hands at the bombers if you don’t respect him. May well be all Australian and your b And f winner but still you give him no credit.

Stephens finding a lot more of the ball but really needs to improve his awareness. To be expect from a young player but just something that stood out

I didn't think it was one of his best either. Just didn't think his disposal was poor at all.

Take him, couldn't give a sh*t. His stats are permanent junk stats, Lloyd AA, fu** me and if he wins the b/f would be a joke. Wtf am I responding to a druggie for?
