    Very much the same as Hawthorn's Premiership team of Roughhead, Hale, Buddy and Gunston. In fact, a very similar lineup including 1 identical.

    A player returning from a week out , another in for his 1st game of the season and another playing only his 2nd after ten months out.And no Pykey.
    Hawks by 35 - at least.

    Didn't see any heavy rain in the inner city Liz, a bit of a spit maybe.

    Gunston dominated under this system because the top three tall defenders had to go to Hale, Buddy and Roughhead. Either Reid or Goodes needs to be continually dominant under this system because they get the 3rd and 4th best tall. I also think if Rohan can find fitness, confidence and form, he could be a menace taking the 5th best defender. Rohan is very strong over his head at his best.

    It pissed down in Pyrmont mid-afternoon. But of course, you know better, we must have imagined it...

    Well I am basing this on the fact it is hard enough to get a crowd to ANZ when not raining and Hawthorn belted St Kilda in the rain but swans were beaten when they played in the rain and when they played against Collingwood at ANZ plus it is hard for a tall team in the rain

    The BOM website shows no rain west of Ashfield over last 24 hours. Today's rain is predicted for the coastal fringe. Anyone from that area to confirm?
    Just hope that the mids and HB line go super hard tonight. Tall timber in forward 50 does not win games.
    I'm worried about the bench and who goes sub. It will be Lloyd, I guess, but I'd love to have him running the whole game. No point in having either Reid or KT as sub; perhaps Goodes for impact in late third quarter? Go hard Bloods.
