Robinson seems to have come back ok although appears to be playing very outside. Jones looks up and about which is great insurance for the finals.
    Agree about BJ. He continues to waste his possessions. He has another year on his contract, so he'll get another chance, perhaps his last, to make a run at a senior spot.

    Tom likes to work on his knees at ground level. I think he has a future in archaeology.

    Rose's problem is he lacks confidence kicking for goal, the reason he didn't keep his place in the 1's. He was 20 out with a set shot and preferred to kick around the corner and missed by a mile. Couple of snaps well wide of the big sticks.

    Great to hear so many senior players supporting the reserves.

    Good first game back from Zak Jones. I think he's a serious shot to regain his spot, but more likely to play next week in the ressies GF. He has that finals hardness and competitiveness you like to see.

    Rose has a bag of tricks. He's an elusive player and quite unpredictable, sometimes it works to his benefit and other times not. He runs hard and plays 2-way footy. I like his chances of winning a spot in our senior side in the next couple of years. I much prefer him to Towers, who I see as a near definite trade this year.

    I was impressed again with Jake Brown, who looks a classy player. I think he has a bright future. Is quite and skillful and a good decision maker for someone so young. He may get bid on and could be on our senior list next season.

    James Bell looks a good prospect for the 2017 draft. Perhaps we will see a good deal of him as a top up next year.

    We always seem to get a midfielder or 2 from the academy or the rookie draft. Even if we lose Mitchell and Towers, we still have so much quality depth in the side that we can safely use our first 2 draft picks for KPPS this year.

    If it's GWS apparently the NEAFL are very keen for Saturday 11 am at Spotless. The Showgrounds operators less keen in anticipation of a AFL SF the following week. Otherwise will be Blacktown Sunday

    Giants smashed Uni by 87 points. It's going to be a great match next week, especially with no player restrictions. Giants probably have the better team on paper but the Swans have played very well as a unit all year
