Thread: Round 15 versus Bulldogs - Which players are different this time around?

  1. #1

    Round 15 versus Bulldogs - Which players are different this time around?

    In Round 15 we played:
    • Sinclair
    • Nankervis
    • Rose
    • Towers


    For the Grand Final, instead, we will most likely play:
    • Tippett
    • Allir
    • Naismith
    • Marsh
    • X Richards


    Unfortunately, we might lose:
    • Mills
    • McVeigh


    In terms of ruck, unlike round 15, we seem to be way stronger, as we only had Sinclair/Nankervis, but this time around we have Tippett and Naismith combining. And with their ruckman having that eye problem, you'd think we have the center clearance advantage, surely? Particularly with the revelation that is Naismith?

    It's also interesting to note from round 15 that Heeney had a stinker of a game with only a mere 4 disposals while this past week he had a career high +32.

    Can't be assed going through the bulldogs team because I'm really unfamiliar with them. Can anyone provide information on how their team is different from our previous meetings? Suckling might not play and that's all I know.

    That McLean is the biggest ducker you ever saw, in fact a lot of the Dogs are duckers. Got to make sure tackles are lower this week as the umps are likely to be whistle happy for the Dogs.

    Thanks man. That's really helpful.

    So basically, we are both really different sides playing each other.

    Our ins and bigger than their ins, yes? I don't know squat about the bulldogs.

    WAtching their game last night, I'm a bit nervous.

    The Bullies are a good team, but you've got to have faith in the Swans. There's a lot of heart there AND they have the memories of 2014 to put even more fire in their bellies.

    I had absolute, dedicated faith in them to deliver in 2014, with supreme confidence, but they let me down.

    Granted, this is a different situation, but I'm very skeptical about it.
