    Round 17: Sydney Swans Reserves v NT Thunder @ SCG

    NEAFL 2017 Round 17

    Sydney Swans Reserves v NT Thunder @ Sydney Cricket Ground

    Saturday 22nd July 2017
    Sydney Cricket Ground

    In Round 5 this year, the Swans travelled up to the NT and finally broke their duck with a stirring victory over the Thunder described by Coach Shaw as one of the wins under his reign. The Thunder boys will be hoping to break their own hoodoo, having never beaten us in Sydney.

    The Swans senior team has been rightly praised for their amazing run winning 9 of their past 10 games, but the NEAFL team have easily eclipsed that feat with 13 straight victories. The closest margin in that time was in fact the away win over the Thunder which finished at a 24 point margin.

    The Thunder have had an up and down year so far, having to adjust to a new senior coach and an influx of new young players. Surprisingly, 4 of their 5 losses have come at home, which until this year was regarded as the toughest away trip in the NEAFL. However on the back of 3 straight victories they will fancy their chances of causing an upset against a strong Swans lineup.

    In: Laidler, Florent
    Out: Shaun EDWARDS (?)

    O'Riordan was a mystery out last week but has popped up on the injury list as having an ankle injury and out for 1-2 weeks. I expect we will find out the reason for Edwards's omission in a similar manner.

    I suspect that BJ might be the sacrificial senior emergency given the other two Laidler and Hayward played one half of footy between them last week.

    In terms of structures, I wouldn't expect too many changes from last week but Shaw doesn't mind shuffling the magnets around on the whiteboard. Laidler's return to the side might allow Aliir or Maibaum to start forward, and Florent should take Edwards's role in the midfield.

    From the Swans website: Carroll is "a key position player who can play at either end of the ground, but he's probably predominantly been used down back. He's a very good one-on-one player who takes a good mark". He stands at 191cm and weighs 85kg and only turned 18 in June.

    NT Thunder captain Cam Ilett announced earlier this week that he would be retiring at the end of the season. He has been a leading figure not just for the Thunder football club but also in the NEAFL. Currently leading the NEAFL MVP voting with just 4 games to go, he is bowing out at the top of his game.

    The Thunder's chances are hurt by a few injuries and a spate of unavailability to key players. Ankers is their primary inside midfielder who leads their side in disposals, contested possessions, clearances and 2nd for inside 50s. Rioli is a creative small forward who leads their inside 50 count and also is number in score assists.

    The return of Sambono significantly boosts their forward line, and in combination with Ewing forms the NEAFL's most potent attacking duo. Ewing looks likely to win yet another NEAFL goalkicking title, with his 50 goals 14 ahead of 2nd placed Jackson Paine of Redland. Sambono has attracted significant interest from AFL clubs, earning a special dispensation to join the Allies U18 squad despite being 2 years older than most of the draft pool.

    Maibaum had the task on Ewing in Round 5, and adjusted well after being beaten by the wily veteran in their first few contests. From memory Sambono was marked by a topup player and kicked 4 goals. I wouldn't mind seeing how Murray could fare against him, or perhaps Aliir could show his versatility by playing on a smaller forward

    The presence of one T.Olango in the ruck is sure to excite at least one poster.

    Good to see Brown back. Wonder how many hawthorn supporters will be watching to see how Olango performs. This game will most likely be replayed on NITV some time during the week.

    Ugg, why do you reckon my boy Dawson isn't even an emergency for the seniors? Is it because they want him to have a second full game after missing three?

    Glad to see there is a live stream - will be nice to watch the game as a warm up to the main contest later in the night (would prefer to be at the ground but can't be )

    The game between the two teams earlier in the year was a great game of footy - hopefully a repeat is on the cards tomorrow.

    I'd be interested in hearing reserves watchers current thoughts on Foote's progress. I think he received a bit of an unfair grilling at the beginning of the year. I felt in hindsight that he'd been thrown to the wolves. It would have been hard for a fringe player to find their way during those initial games at the start of the season. Too many key players out injured, and the general form of the team wanting. Harder for an emerging player to shine under those conditions. I suspect it would be significantly easier for him to find his feet (so to speak) if he found himself in the seniors at this stage of the season.

    Any chance, oh revered ressie watchers, that you could keep an eye out on Dawson's direct opponent and his effectiveness against the Swans?
