    Our inability to hit a target under pressure by hand or foot is killing us. Our skill levels look a level below the Dogs. At least we can only get better.

    Some comments from the AFL Live match feed:

    "Jarryd McVeigh leads all players on the ground with 168 metres gained this term at 100 per cent disposal efficiency. However the other five players on the ground to have gained at least 100 metres this term are all Bulldogs."

    We really have to lift our workrate.

    "Despite the Swans dominance in the ruck, where they have won 18 hitouts from 31 contests, including eight hitouts-to-advantage to two, the Bulldogs have won twice as many clearances than their opponents in the first half (16-8)."

    Some centre clearance improvement would be handy.......Come on Swans!!

Towers is one culprit, Newman another, while Jones has mixed some good "taking the game on" with some overly ambitious plays that have turned the ball over.
    Yes I thought so...very hard for him if he had no pre season, I think he's doing well considering....I would expect him to get better each week

    Yes, in both his games, he's been Dan the turnover man. Perhaps until he proves he can hit a target again, there should be a team rule that says, if he wants to have a possession, then he's going to have to get the ball himself.

    Yes, need to improve our clearances. And only 18 tackles in the first half, isn't good either.

    I'm not watching (it's not on down here in Vic).....what was the offence?

    A welcome 'live feed' comment:

    "Sydney have lifted their kicking efficiency early in the third term, going at 100 per cent (83 per cent in their forward half) compared to the Bulldogs 40 per cent. This has allowed the Swans to spend 62 per cent of this quarter in their forward half."

    Excellent!
