    Round 12: Gold Coast Suns Reserves v Sydney Swans Reserves

    Good Day Sunshine

    NEAFL Round 12
    Gold Coast Suns Reserves v Sydney Swans Reserves
    Saturday 7th June 2013 3.00pm
    Metricon Stadium

    The young Swans face a Herculean task this weekend when they travel to Metricon stadium to take on the Suns Reserves. The Reserves' list, like their senior counterpart, has been whittle down slowly week by week due to injury and this week they also lose one more player due to traveling emergency duties. The Suns on the other hand, are on the ascendancy, and due to a combination of senior players returning from injury as well as a solid performing senior team which has left some bigger names languishing in the reserves. The Swans will have a big ask facing the might and experience of Nathan Bock, Jared Brennan, Greg Brouhgton and Karmichael Hunt as well as the highly hyped up youngster Jack Martin, who has been described as being better than Jaeger O'Meara at the same stage last year.

    The Swans won the Round 3 clash in convincing fashion, when their excellent first quarter performance proved too much for the Suns to overcome.

    Past Meetings
    2013
    R3 Reserves 15.20 (110) defeated Gold Coast Reserves 10.5 (65) @ Sydney Cricket Ground

    A brilliant first half display by the Reserves set up a comfortable victory against the Suns reserves, whose lethargic start proved to be costly. Midfielders Lamb, Cunningham and Robinson set up the win with their contested ball, whose work was gleefully finished off by the forward duo of Morton and Membrey who finished with 7 goals between them.

    Goals: Morton 4, Membrey 3, Cunningham 2, Brown, Sertbas, Mitchell, Robinson, Jack, Lamb
    Best: Lamb, Cunningham, Robinson, Brown, White

    2012
    R2 Reserves 7.13 (55) defeated by Gold Coast 13.13 (91) @ Sydney Cricket GroundThe Reserves were hampered by the late withdrawals of Mark Seaby and Jesse White whilst their opponents the Suns had the ability to call on the full complement of 5 on their bench. The Reserves struggled to break down a resolute Suns defensive unit and lost it in the last quarter when Josh Fraser booted 4 of his 5 goals.

    Goals: Walsh 2, Potter, McNeil, Lycakis, Jack, Gordon
    Best: Heath, Walsh, Lycakis, Moore, Jack

    R10 Reserves 16.13 (109) defeated Gold Coast 8.8 (56) @ Blacktown International Sports Park
    In the wet and damp conditions out west, the talls Mark Seaby (in the ruck) and Matthew Spangher (at CHF) dominated for the Swans as they romped to a comfortable 9 goal win over the Suns. The physicality and pressure of the home team was too much for Gold Coast whose sloppiness proved costly as they could only manage 3 goals to 3 quarter time.

    Goals: Spangher 4, Morton 3, Everitt 2, Seaby 2, Moody, Cunningham, Mitchell, White, Walsh
    Best: Seaby, Spangher, Biggs, Everitt, Moore, Davis

    R18 Gold Coast 15.10 (100) defeated by Reserves 20.11 (131) @ Metricon Stadium
    A close fought game was blown apart in the last quarter when the Reserves unleashed an 8 goal display to easily triumph away at Metricon Stadium. Mitch Morton was the star forward, kicking 9 goals in a consistent all round display with Nathan Gordon and Matt Spangher's competitive displays leading the way for the Swans.

    Goals: Morton 9, Spangher 3, Plug 2, Moore, Potter, McNeil, White, Everitt, Gordon
    Best: Gordon, Spangher, Morton, Meredith, Plug, Cunningham

    Team List
    Listed players
    #NameGamesGoalsVotesNotes
    1Tim MEMBREY7153Morphed into a half-forward pushing up the ground, and he excelled in that role with some effective inside 50 kicks.
    7Harry CUNNINGHAM4533 quarters of game time last week in the midfield.
    11Jed LAMB6818(Senior emergency) Topped the disposal count last week, unlucky not to earn a senior recall.
    19Tony ARMSTRONG402(Senior emergency) First mention in the best list last week.
    23Jordan LOCKYER910Has some big Suns forwards to cover this week: Bock, Hall or Gorringe.
    27Daniel ROBINSON893Much needed return to bolster a depleted midfield.
    28Matthew DICK500Been hampered by injury, has missed the last 3 reserves games.
    31Harrison MARSH850Another tagging job awaits, presumably on a Brennan or Horsley.
    36Alex BROWN9312With White going to Adelaide, will most likely be the relief ruckman/resting forward.
    42Xavier RICHARDS8010In good form but will be tested by the Suns' arsenal of tall forwards.
    44Jake LLOYD9717Crunched in the Belco game early and wasn't as prominent as usual.
    46Shane BIGGS9010Named best on ground last week for his defensive and rebounding work.
    Changes
    In: Robinson, Dick
    Out: Jesse WHITE (seniors), Dean TOWERS (senior emergency), Brandon JACK (seniors)

    Down to the bare bones, just 12 listed players have been named and three (Cunningham, Robinson and Dick) are returning from injury. The side also seems a little unbalanced with many defender type players, so Crouch will have shift a few players around to cover the gaps. Height and size could be an issue too with no recognised ruckman in this list, it means one of the topups will take primary ruck duties.

    With 5 of the top 6 goalkickers for the year not in this week's side (Morton, White, Walsh, Jack, Everitt) the bulk of the scoring load will fall on Membrey, Lamb and Lloyd.

    In: Brassil, Green, McKinlay, Plug, Washington
    Out: Doug HADDEN, Ben HODGSON, Lachlan KILPATRICK, Levi SANDS

    Brassil played as the side's leading ruckman the last time White was out of the side. He competed well although he lost the hitouts stat convincingly. Green, McKinlay and Plug have played as topups in the past, and Plug in particular was one of the better topups in the run
    to the NEAFL finals last year.

    Weir has shown an ability to kick goals since being moved forward, mainly in open play even though he usually plays as a tall target.

    Out: Cameron DUFFY, Jack GOODALL, Caleb HAY, Jack HUTCHINS, Tom MICHAEL, Liam PATRICK, Jack TAYLOR, Jak WILLIAMS

    We missed out seeing what the hype over Jack Martin was in Round 3, but the excitement machine is in good form and will dominate the midfield if his influence is not curbed. The trouble for the Swans is if they tag him, that leaves players such as Horsley, Brennan and Hunt open who are just as good in the clearances as Martin is. Weller is the designated tagger in this side and you would imagine his sights will be trained on Lamb from the first bounce.

    Nathan Bock played only limited minutes in his comeback match last week, but still managed a impressive 4 goals 2 behinds return, against a strong opposition in the Brisbane Lions Reserves. He will likely start forward again and his size alone will prove a problem for the Swans who in past games this year have tended to throw Walsh back when bigger forwards appeared on the horizon but alas they do not have that luxury today. Former high jumper Josh Hall played in the ruck last week and still managed a 5 goal haul, but with Gorringe back this week he will spend more time as a permanent forward.

    Thanks Ugg. Do you know if Suns TV will stream the game. Jordan Weir will probably play forward. Hayden Washington? Is he a ruckman? We had good ruck stocks at the start of the year but we are looking a little thin at the moment. Where are you Sam???

    Thanks ugg, meticulous work as usual. Looks like a real test for the youngsters. Who do you tip to take Bock: Alex B? Xav? Whichever it could be a prime learning experience.
    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)

    Suns 10.10 (70)
    Swans 7.8 (50)

    GOLD COAST SUNS
    Goal Kickers: A. Boston 4, S. May 2, J. Gillbee , J. Wardle , M. Weller , J. Allen
    Best Players: J. Martin, A. Boston, J. Brennan, D. Gorringe, K. Hunt, L. Osborne

    SYDNEY SWANS
    Goal Kickers: T. Membrey 2, S. Biggs , J. Lloyd , J. Dunn , J. Lamb , Y. Jaffer-Williams
    Best Players: J. Lamb, J. Lloyd, H. Cunningham, S. Biggs, T. Armstrong, Y. Jaffer-Williams

    Just following the Suns twitter account, seems we fought back to level the scores just after 3 quarter time after being down by 19 points at half time. So a pretty good effort considering the relative strengths of each lineup.

    Agree with liz. Considering the outs, and the toppies, they did themselves proud.

    The conditions would have been trying as well. I was watching the Gold Coast racing about the time that game started and you could barely see the horses on the far side of the track the rain was that heavy...

    Thanks for the details ugg.
    Suns are a decent outfit with some senior-hardened personnel, no disgrace to go down fighting them. Our ressies could look similar in a few weeks with LRT, Red Rooster and Rhyce (if he gets up in time).
    I thought it was particularly encouraging to note our best players:Lamb, Lloyd, Cunningham (a favourite of mine, looks like Rhyce's ideal replacement), Biggs (coming on nicely with more games), Armstrong (keeping up the pressure).

    Towers must have been the emergency that went with the main team. That's interesting.

    Looking at the Goal kicking table: 2013 Goalkickers - RWOwiki
    They were missing 5 of the top 6 goal kickers for the season.
    4 to senior duty and 1 (Walsh) to injury.

    That wouldn't help.

    Oh, plus some flog named Mitchell is missing as well!!
