    I am a pessimist today. I believe both teams have improved since their nail-biting encounter down here last year, but without Smooch we will find it difficult to shut down their small forwards. Potentially Harvey on Rohan would be a great matchup in our forward line as Rohan may have the pace to counter Harvey's run out of defence and add his own height in a marking contest. Potentially without the drive of Goodes we will struggle, so I think Norf by 13.

    ..And the Swans are the Premiers...The Ultimate Team...The Ultimate Warriors. They have overcome the highly fancied Hawks in brilliant style. Sydney the 2012 Premiers - Gerard Whately ABC

    Teddy is NOT to play on Petrie. Last year he kicked 4 goals I think in the first qtr until we put Grundy on him.

    Al, I feel so dirty for saying it

    If we spend the last quarter camped in their goalsquare like we did last year, I am going to have a coronary.

    Who have North play again, Essendon, Training Run and Geelong?
    Not that impressed really, Geelong was too emotionally down to win, and Essendon is not a top four side.
    We should win easy, the only interest is who will replace Goodes.
    Let try Tommy Walsh, be dying to see the Irish boy play!
    doof-doof

    I'm fully confident we can win. Roos were full strength in the NAB cup and we were all over them and we had so many outs.
    We can definitely beat them if we are prepared to play tight close marking and harass them.
    It's likely to be wet and we have spent almost the entire summer and pre-season training under water.
    It's at the SCG where we know how to play.
    Excited.

    After all that I picked the wrong poll options. Can a MOD fix and vote me Swans by 20-39 please.

    Don't know if Walsh has done enough to suggest he is ready for his AFL debut.
