    Changes for Round 9 v Fremantle

    No Buddy again this week

    Buddy blow: Swans superstar to miss again - AFL.com.au

    McCartin stays then......team may well remain unchanged.

    Starting to wonder if he'll be right for the Indigenous Round game. Must be in some doubt. Would be a huge shame not to see him running out wearing that guernsey.

    They said 4 weeks plus when he was first out.

    So Swans Overdogs this week v Freo at the SCG. Their team looks OK .

    Hannebery sounds a possible starter....If so, who will they drop?? It's a tough one...

    Robinson played his best game for the Swans and deserves to ride that confidence into this game.

    The most ineffective player last Friday was Towers, but that's not a 'like for like' change and he does relieve in the ruck (Good luck against Sandilands)

    McCartin not a 'like for like' either, and I thought he presented and contested well...Until he ran out of gas.

    So who knows which way they'll go...I certainly don't....But I'll have a stab anyway...

    OUT : Towers, McCartin

    IN : Cameron, Hannebery

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT

    Can't see either of those changes happening. Towers has been great this year, and is invaluable as a relief in the ruck for Sinclair. Will not be dropped.
    Similarly, McCartin is more suited to our mobile forward line than a lumbering Cameron. He is only likely to get a game when Sinclair misses.

    Robinson for Hanners is the only likely change, unless they finally realise Rohan doesn't contribute for 97% of game time (he is averaging 8 disposals a game and less than 1 goal...)

    I reckon the story about Buddy's heel still troubling him is a cover up. Got nothing to do with injury...


    there's just no room in the team for him at the moment with Ronke and Hayward on fire.

    .......and phew! I thought you were going down a controversial path there for a moment.

    Whatever the club does with Hanners, donít rush him back.

    It reminds me of Jack last year. Played him when they shouldnít have. Then they rested him till he was really ready.

    So hold him out, get him truly cranked up and ripe, then let him loose at 100 percent.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    When I started reading your post I thought you were insinuating something sinister!

    Totally agree. Even a game in the 2s to get up to scratch if needed.
