Thread: Round 5: UWS Giants v Sydney Swans Reserves

His skills are a little ragged at times, and he is probably just a little small to have a shot at playing at AFL level (given he's not overly quick and his skills aren't top notch). But he's great for the reserves. He always reminds me a little of Wade Chapman, with his reckless attack on the ball. Just doesn't also possess the exquisite skills that Chapman had.
    The downside of being a Victorian I guess, Liz, a lot of the reserves stuff just passes me by

    The thing about Hadden that stands out is that he seems to get to every contest. Mind you, on the video he looks like a little kid.

    As for Chapman, he wasn't reckless, he was suicidal!

    I'm loving seeing Wade Chapman's name bandied about...One of my all time favourites...A blossoming career, sadly cut short.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT

    That's not trivia. Trivia is trivial, while the answer to that question is part of Swans folk lore. It was, of course, Chapman.

    Trivia = facts about people that are not well known
    Trivial = of little importance or value.

    Who kicked the ball to Cressa to mark in the goal square and kick the winning goal in the 96 qualifying final v Hawthorn?

    I'm hoping it was Luffy, but I doubt it. :-)

    Today's a draft of your epitaph
