Paul Chapman is still getting games with Essendon but there is not really any obvious 'niche' to fit ROK into in our team as it is structured at the moment.
    The only 'niche' (is that a crevice if you are a ROK?) could fill would be ably filled by either Mitchel or Jones, the inside midfleider role.
    If, and I hope it won't happen, only if Bird or Kennedy go down Pebbles could step into that position. If it was for finals game would you prefer Pebbles, Mitchell or Jones? In that situation I think I would prefer the experience of R'Ok in over the youth of Mitchell/Jones.
    Otherwise McGlynn could move into the middle and bring in another crumbing/defensive/attacking forward?

    Swans won't rest on their laurels as finals approach - AFL.com.au

    A predictable Horse response. So all conjecture of resting sore players goes out the window....

    As aardvark predicts, so do I...

    One thing I would like to see is both Cunningham and Lloyd in the 21 this week. Both had good games on Saturday. Harry looked confident all game and is looking as if he will develop into a top shelf player. Lloyd had 8 possession in 12 minutes and was very composed for such an important game. That sealer goal would have been a big confidence builder and it would be good to reward him with a full game.

    It's hard to fathom how much space Harry was afforded. It seems to happen in most games.

    Surely teams will start to man him up soon.

    That's all very well, but at the expense of who? The other youngish, "fringe" player currently in the team is Rohan but he was good at the weekend too, playing a different (and arguably more pivotal role than either Harry or Lloyd) and is improving every game playing this new role.

    Nothing if not boring and predictable is our Horse. Must be a nightmare for the journos to interview. You could listen to two dozen of his interviews - pre match, post match, midway through the week - and he says exactly the same thing. When we lose, we just weren't good enough. When we win, lots of players played their roles, which was pleasing.

    It must be far more fun to interview Malthouse or one of the Scott brothers, who always manage to find something other than their teams to blame for ordinary performances.

    Goodes. Green suits him.

    I have to admit I'm a bit skeptical of Reid's form and role in the team.

    Horse said his role is crucial to the team's structure.

    Reid was quiet at the weekend but he's playing a role that nobody else can at the minute and has done it pretty well this year I think.

    Agree entirely Liz. Just add "we need to continue to improve". "It's a relentless competition". etc etc.

    Perhaps more predictable is the young bloke who does the after match interviews in the rooms "How important was it to kick the first four goals?" "How important was it to stop Gary Ablett from having an impact?" "How important was it to get a team performance" "How important was it to feel you were over your injuries?" How important was it to score more goals than the opposition?" "How important was it to our finals chances to keep winning" "How important was it to my question to ask how important was it ....."

    Id be very surprised if there were any moves to rest people this weekend. I'd expect that may happen in Rd 23, should we win our next 2 and results go our way, meaning that we are assured a top 2 finish. Would be awfully risky to make 4 or 5 changes, then not show up and get done in a game we are expected to win.
