    Think Florent and Leonardis were in the wrong guernsey number!

    Not sure where he plays or who he replaces but I just feel that we'd be a better side with Aliir playing rather than languishing in the reserves. Maybe drop a ruckman or Towers or both!

    Massive final quarter by the Swans. Makes you wonder whether the Suns' fitness is up to scratch, though the disparity in the number of listed vs top up players could also explain the Suns dropping away towards the end of the game.

    I wonder if Rose has done enough to win himself a senior game next week?

    Rose has had a great second half of the season and has been very consistent with his performances, which Longmire really likes. He seems to be worth a shot in lieu of either Towers or Hayward. I like that Rose has a bit of moxie in him. We might have to find a replacement for Jones as he's a strong possibility of getting a 3rd fine, hence a 1 match suspension.

    Rose for Hayward isn't crazy. Rose seems to have been consistently in the bests in the last few weeks. Can put on pressure and kick goals, right?

    Rose was utterly underwhelming when he played earlier in the season, but credit to him, he's been consistently our best at NEAFL level over the last a couple of months. They'll be tempted at least. Selection will be interesting this week.

    Towers and Hayward both greater than Rose.

    I think the only 2's that have a chance at seniors this year are Cunningham, Allir and Dawson. Draw a line through the rest

    I agree with barry regarding Rose. I don't think he's close to senior selection

    However in addition to those 3 named I think Robinson, Laidler and as much as many would disagree Foote would also be on the fringes

    What does Rose have to do that he is not doing now to get selected Ugg? On the face if it he is going great guns.

    How do we know if Rose would not be better than Towers or Hayward unless we give him a go? Same with Dawson. And if consistent high quality NEAFL form is not a measure of how we make selections for injured our under-performing senior players, then what is?

    I would think that Cunningham would be the logical choice to replace Hayward if our match committee feel he isn't hard bodied enough for finals. Quick, strong and plays the lock down role well up forward.

    We've got a number of players in the twos making a case for senior selection but ultimately they need to make the senior team better. The only players I can see as being under threat are Towers, Hayward, Newman and one of Sinclair/Tippett.

    One thing is for sure, we're going to have a number of players coming back for pre-season training trying to smash it for senior selection - Florent, Dawson, Cameron, Maibaum, Aliir, Robbo and Rose for starters. It's a very very healthy situation for our squad

    Add AJ to that list too
