    Swans have a lot of eggs in the Naismith basket

    Rampe to the midfield.

    Mills to the midfield.

    Jones to the midfield.
    The eternal connundrum "what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object" was finally solved when David Hasselhoff punched himself in the face.

    I'm convinced he'll be there if fit but I agree on him as a player. Clearly a better tap ruckman than Sinclair but he doesn't do much around the ground.

    Yes, this is the concern!

    Though the Eagles showed this year, having a B Grade (by that I mean a non top tier) ruckman doesn't stop you winning the premiership.

    I think there are two key issues with our rucks next year:

    1. Does Naismith's tap work offset his inability to impact around the ground; and
    2. Is Sinclair capable of impacting playing predominately as a forward

    The MC clearly intend to play two rucks, and the new rules should help with that. I think it can work but I guess we'll see

    Sinkers has a good tank, but isn't quite good enough as a ruckman. I don't know how much running Naismith can do in the offseason to help with that.

    They'll share the duties, thus neither will need that huge tank that a solo ruckman would need

    I'm hoping the team is something like this. Not sure if both Jack and Grundy will be out of the side come Round 1 though. I think they'll start in the team. Hopefully I haven't forgotten anybody.

    FB: Smith, Melican, Aliir
    HB: McVeigh, Rampe, Lloyd
    C: Mills, Kennedy, Jones
    R: Naismith, Parker, Heeney
    HF: Hayward, Reid, Dawson
    FF: Ronke, Franklin, Papley

    INT: Florent, Cunningham, Clarke, Sinclair

    EMG: Jack, Thurlow, McCartin, Robinson, Grundy

    Hopefully a few draftees can force their way into the team as well

    Looks spot on to me! Except I'd like to play O'Riordan in there as well, just not sure where he fits.
