    That intercept from Rose!... If only he tried to launch the footy earlier!

    Rose looks good.
    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time

    Very nice close to that third quarter. Rose has been very lively, but Tyrone starting to come into the action a bit more, and great to see O'Riordan kick what I assume was his first ever goal at competitive level. Dawson was a bit quiet in the second quarter but he woke up again in that third quarter.

    I'd love to send a barber over to Giants HQ. There are an irritating number with those silly man buns!

    Great fight back by the swans late in that quarter.

    Murray looks very keen to kick a goal.

    Gutsy performance by the Swans. Was looking dire mid way through the 3rd. What a come back.

    Steele dominant for Giants.

    Rose, very good to watch. Very crafty all over the ground, rarely held.

    Newman looked composed and dependable.

    Murray showed a few good things in his first game. Kicked a big goal.

    Would feel very comfortable with Rose in the seniors. Great find by Beatson & Co.

    We dropped a lot of marks, particularly in the 1st half, but the skill level improved from midway through the 3rd qtr.

    Another solid performance from Harry Marsh. He has the composure of an AFL player and looks mentally ready for AFL footy. I'm happy we kept him on our list.

    Some nice competitive effort by Nanka when the game was on the line.

    O'Riordan looks promising for someone who hasn't played the game. He made some errors, but generally showed good skills and composure. He's a reasonable chance to make the transition.

    We didn't play the stoppages with the usual midfielder, but rather used outside players like Towers, Dawson and Rose (late) for development purposes. It seemed the Giants dominated the clearances, but we looked a fitter team in the end, which says something positive about our development program.

    You are having us on, O'Riordan best?? If he was we have another Kennelly on our hands to make up for the Irish failures since.

    Ugg, can you please give us a realistic run down. Thinking Hewett might make way for someone next week, Rose maybe?
