    Match Day Thread - Swans vs Bulldogs

    Cold, wet and miserable day here in Sydney. Looks like the rain has set in.

    Anyone care to reconsider our chances of winning?

    Surely they'll take out of the 3 ruckman/forwards out in this kind of weather. I'll let you know who's missing from the ressies in about an hour

    JPK is going to show Boyd that men who model knitwear are not to be trifled with! Underneath the cable knit is a body and mind of steel.
    There'll be plenty of spoons full of Sugar Shane Mumford handed out with the red and white medicine today.
    Our wet weather contested king, Jude "FREEDOM" Bolton, is going to cause a world full of pain our there on the SCG.
    Bring it on.
    Oh and don't forget your poncho!

    You would think so. But then again, this weather was forecast when they selected the team on Friday. After all, the decision to switch the reserves game was made then. I can't see the wisdom in ever going into a game with all three of Mumford /Pyke / LRT as rucks / forwards, let alone on a wet day. Maybe they are planning to move LRT back to defence to look after one of the Dogs' tall gangly ruck / forwards. Could we see Reg go forward again?

    Logic says one of the three will be the sub. That doesn't make any sense though. Late change coming I think.

    Can we have a bit less negativity on this thread today please people? It's a crappy day here in Sydney so sitting out there supporting the guys will be challenging enough, and it will be bloody tough to play in these conditions. A bit of positivity and support on here would be great today.......

    Good old reliable ugg!
    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time

    I agree, the only plausible reason for having all 3 in the line up today is if LRT goes back to defence, someone from defence goes forward.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT

    I'd rather Reg stayed in defence though, so maybe AJ could go forward seeing as he did play his whole junior career there.
