    Changes Rd 21 v Freo

    It's Tuesday and this thread doesn't exist yet?

    How much longer can Towers keep his spot? Finals are coming and we need less passengers

    OUT: Sweet Caroline

    Leave Towers alone. He's doing OK.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Towers isn't going anywhere. Just put him on the bench for the last few minutes in tight games.

    On a a recent video interview with Heeney on Swans website, Heeney said the players like Sweet Caroline - it gets them going!

    So who goes out for Joey then? Could be Tippo I s'pose but he should be given a few games to see if he can re-discovered his best? Everyone else has been play good, if not great, footy.
    I would also like to Cunningham make it back, if he can recapture his pre-injury form. He can provide that quick, hard running release player that works so well when we switch play.

    Assuming no other injuries, it'll all depend on the structure - whether to stick with the taller forward line up or revert back to a smaller one. Towers most likely if we keep the talls and Tippett/Sinclair if we go smaller.

    Tippett out, Joey in. Back to the one Ruckman set up we had been using when Naismith was fit

    Perhaps we could have the song replaced by different songs chosen by a player from time to time. Imagine how much it would motivate a player in a milestone game if their favourite song was playing at the break.

    I'd prefer to rest Kennedy for one more week. Wouldn't want him going down with a 21 day hammy on the weekend n miss first week of the finals.

    No change

    I don't think the coaches will back Sinclair to ruck a whole game solo. Naismith yes, but not Sinclair. I also doubt they'd have Tippett rucking solo either, unless forced to. If Naismith is ready to return, they could drop both Sinclair and Tippo if they want to retain a smaller structure but otherwise it will probably be Towers or Newman who makes way for Kennedy, if he's ready. I'm not in favour of dropping Newman but I think he and Towers are probably the two least important from a structural point of view. I can't see anyone else in the side who would even come up for consideration of being dropped given Horse is clearly taken by what Hayward brings to the side (and with three goals last week, it's hard to argue).

    You may be right but I hope they give it to Sinclair. I agree we'd be better with a solo ruckman in Naismith but Sinclair (if fully fit) should be able to put up a good contest by himself. I prefer the structure of a one ruckman team
