    A couple of years ago I flew to Perth for the weekend to watch us play Freo and that trip was easier than getting down to that godforsaken place.
    Those bloody Hobartians even have a siren that works. Treachery!

    Tony A is the obvious choice even though, according to the Ugg Report, he played like a Demon on Saturday. Give Everitt the
    green vest and bring Bird into the 21. WE will need pace and a lot of tackling pressure to stop North's short game.

    Wouldn't want to lose Mummy. We'd be down two beards.

    It depends whether they think we need a big body (Rampe to return) or to match North's foot speed (Harry to return). If Rhyce doesn't come up, I'd go for Harry.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Goodesy has started the last 2 seasons like this, very slow build up. Think about it like this we are winning without Goodes or Jetta having any impact on the outcome, imagine when these two find form. I thought dre was terrible not just the goals he missed but it was his first senior game and definately deserves another chance IMHO.

    Cheers

    As a passionate Swans member and also being a 'rotten stinking Hobartian' I am quite pleased with the venue. I am sure all visitors to our beautiful city will enjoy themselves and hopefully a Swannies victory on our 'ridiculous ground'. Looking forward to a great day in this 'godforsaken place' and I hope you enjoy the match at home on TV 'satchmopugdog' because you will obviously not be travelling to watch your team play in such a rotten, stinking ridiculous city. Go Swannies!

    I was wondering when Satch would pop her head up. C'mon girl, tell us what you really think!
    Still going to Hobart though aren't you.

    Exactly right..This type of attitude typifies why Tasmania as a state fails to reach it's potential, not only in footy terms. Quite sad really. Anyway, I know there are stacks of Swans supporters in Hobart and we will be there in big numbers on Saturday!

    Does this mean White may come into contention ?

    hhhmmm

    harry would be interesting but me thinks Armstrong would be a sound choice just now until Harry gets a little more experience in the backline
