    Anyone else think we look one man short in the midfield.

    Wow Zak Jones has impressed me - not that he hasn't already - but he has stepped right up. Tough, composed, fast and good with disposal. He will be a keeper for sure!

    Good first half from the Swans. I wonder if we will ever play a game in the pre-season where it doesn't rain?

    Been really impressed with Robbo.Midfield stocks looking strong.

    Thought it was a handy first half display. Defence looked particularly good, with Rampe giving every indication that he's going to be even more of a star this season. It also appears that a run and gun approach from defense, will be our preferred option.
    Players looking sharp all over the ground, but of the ones that we are hoping will step up, Robinson is actually our leading possession getter and has been using it well. Hewett has been useful in close, Reid is showing signs of getting back to his best, and the multiple efforts that Hayward made to get his goal showed promise.

    Wish they would be more consistent with the dropping the ball rule. Buddy gets penalised but Riewoldt is allowed to drop it and they score a goal.

    OMG my heart went into my mouth with Grundy holding his knee. Please be ok!!

    Buddy just mentioned injury concerns in his on-field interview, think he's seen something we haven't?
    Captain, I am detecting large quantities of win in this sector

    Very enjoyable pre-season match and I think both sides will take a bit out of that:

    Random comments and observations

    * Buddy mercurial and his field kicking is very very good, he looks set for a career best year
    * Tippo looked good and took some good contested marks, likewise I like young Darcy Cameron and whilst he is not quite ready yet I think he will be a very good player once he has a full season under his belt with us
    * Melican started well but faded and looked tired at the end, reckon if AA gets through the NEAFL game he is a lock for R1 though
    * Jones looked the best mid by a mile out there, sign him up guys, his value will only go up this year
    * Haywood - looks slick and there's something exciting about that kid but he is a fair way off senior selection atm but could see him playing back half
    * Florent has done enough to be selected R1 for mine
    * Marsh is unfashionable but gets the job done, he needs to just keep things simple, will go close to a R1 gig
    * Towers - not enough for mine to warrant R1 and even though it was a pre season match my heart still skipped a beat when he had the ball with 28 secs left on the clock; gets caught too often with the footy
    * Equally unconvinced re Robinson but he did himself no harm tonight with that effort
    * Good to see Parker fire up and he'll be in tip top shape R1

    Finally, some of the 15m interpretations tonight by those three blind mice were terrible, I'd make it 25m anyway but surely it cannot be that hard

    We're ready to rumble, bring on season 2017

    So the Swans runner went down just after the warmups and just before first bounce. Had plenty of concerned medical staff attending to him He later came out on crutches with left knee strapped
    Shaw became the runner for the day
