    Benny's serious about playing finals football, and fair enough too.........and, he's done enough.

    Great game but, apart from the win and % boost, what can they take from this game? Sure, Benny is playing well, but even Kenny Williams could probably get a dozen possessions & kick a couple of goals for the Swans in this game.

    Not that it matters anymore, but on a now trivial note.....our percentage is now 152.99!! Very tidy.....

    No, I think that Benny's done enough to hold his spot. Richmond's performance is suggesting to me, that at least a few of the players, don't want Hardwick to hold his.

    Benny's on fire, stoked - rather than "cooked".

    What's the matter with Gary Rohan?
    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)

    What a bench with 4 minutes to go, Franklin, Tippett, Rohan and Heeney. Can we get Parker, Hanners and Kennedy off too? We don't mind playing with 3 short!

    Is Houli on field? If not, Naismith could be in trouble.

    What a game! Can't remember a game like it, but is anyone else nervous about winning the minor premiership? The swans play best as underdogs. In any case, great time to start playing top tier footy, we're looking good!

    Could not have hoped for a more comprehensive way to go into the finals - brutally efficient going forward and we had it easy with how soft richmond were.

    All i can say is bring on September - we are every chance and that in itself is a wonderful achievement given where a lot of us thought we might be at the start of the season.

    Cheer cheer the red and the white!!!

    Congratulations Sydney, minor premiers. Especially sweet considering some of the so called experts had us not making finals at all.
