    Gary Rohanís long road back
    Rohan was also given a new job, in the back line, knowing he had time to get used to playing there. In part, it was because Longmire and Sydney's other coaches thought he would play well there, given his speed and and dare, his willingness to either chase players down or take off with the ball. It was also because they wanted to give him something to think about, other than his leg.

    Points out Swans have a a surprising weakness in contested ball and clearances.
    North has a psychological vulnerability. When it wins, all of its key indicators go up, when it loses they all plummet

    Cracking article on Lloyd. His old man and 'Jimmy' definitely seem like interesting characters

    The article on Jake was new to me. What a revelation! No wonder the kid can play.
    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)

    I hope "Jimmy" has had a talk to Gaz about nerves, too.
