    Sounds promising, certainly could of won by a bit more with some straight kicking, but with the way the swans are going, any win is a good win!
    "You get the feeling that like Monty Python's Black Knight, the Swans would regard amputation as merely a flesh wound."

    Just found a match report on AFL Brisbane Lions site. The first 5 goals were kicked by Towers, Heeney, Marsh, McCaffrey and Hilcox. Membrey, Biggs and Alir were said to have 'shone throughout'.

    Nothing at all on the Swans website as yet!

    How hard can it be , especially when its the only thing you have to crow about (no pun intended)?
    We have them where we want them, everything is going according to plan!

    Thanks ugg, top job as usual.
    Does anyone know how Aliir came to score a goal?
    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)

    But if we're training him as a defender, I'm curious to know how this happened. And did he look as if he had a decent action?

    Use your imagination dimelb! I'd like to think he took the kick in, then hared off straight down the ground as Dick, Biggs, Lloyd transfer the ball in quick succession. Finally BJ puts up a league style bomb to the top of the square allowing Aliir to fly with the momentum to sit on a shocked Matt
    Maguire juggling it with his head before hitting a sweet volley that pierces the midpoint of the big sticks

    That'll have to do until Tuesday anyway

    Ugg has done himself proud over on BF. Maybe he thinks it was too lowbrow for RWO...? (It was - is - quite amusing.)
