    What like JPK, Hanners, Nick Smith et al? We can only hope....

    This season will likely be Robbo's last unless something big on-field happens.

    I agree with you (e.g. ROK) but one X. Richards might not.

    How did the Swans punish Richards? They offered him a contract and he declined it.

    Perhaps punish is too strong a word. However when a player asks to leave and then stays it may change the dynamic slightly and even at a sub conscious level coaches will lose a bit of faith.

    The scores in the game were Swans 105 - SU 55 (give or take). Bird, BJ did not play for SU.
    Even first qtr but Swans fitness and class progressively took over. Pink looked to have a badly sprained ankle. On crutches after game. Reg played the full game and looks a certainty for WC.
    Swans best for mine (not necessarily in order) Ronke, COR, Cameron, Marsh, Hayward, Robinson, Reg

    Thanks for providing the scores. I don't suppose the Swans will ever get around to even mentioning the game took place.

    I thought fitness was a key difference, and there were a few people standing around me supporting Sydney Uni but clearly with a Swans allegiance too (at senior level) who commented on how the Swans were just able to get more numbers to every contest. That reflects the fitness aspect and the greater intensity they're trained to play the game at.

    Does anyone know for sure if Bird and Jack are playing for Sydney Uni this year? I know it was reported that they were, but neither is listed on the Sydney Uni website. Mind you, it may be that they share a media website co-ordinator with the Swans (or they're twin brothers/sisters) because Edwards isn't listed on their site either, and he did play on Saturday.

    I heard from one of the players that Robinson got 44 disposals.
    Bog by a long way.

    I saw bird at the game in uni uniform.

    By top end squads do you mean N.T.?
    If so where is he based?
