    I thought Clarke was good enough to get another shot in the seniors, but I would put Fox ahead of Clarke. He uses the ball better and is more damaging when he has the ball. He has a good a game awareness and is one of the leaders on the ground.

    I have a good feeling about Sam Wicks. He's a really solid player who can have an impact in several positions.

    Amartey kicked a great goal at the 3rd qtr siren. He would probably find AFL level challenging, but less so than Knoll, who also wasn't too bad.

    I also thought Thorne had the composure of a more senior player.

    Amartey, Stoddart, Fox and Clarke all in the selection mix this week.

    TO be fair to Clarke,.this is all pure conjecture.

    Yes, agreed - good to make that point. I don't believe the theory. I think it's a matter of preferring Rowbottom (reasonably), but I think they're both needed at the moment.

    With an eye to the seniors, I look forward to the tackle count for Menzel.

    With most predictions for the removal of all (or most) of the small forwards in Ronke, Haywood and Jack, any replacement needs to bring forward pressure - something Menzel didn't apparently have in his Geelong era.

    Menzel had two tackles (22 disposals, 9 marks, 2.1).

    Ronke also 2 tackles, with 9 disposals and zero marks

    Braeden Campbell in for first NEAFL game. Gee a lot of academy kids generally in the team. Will be tough against the league leaders.

    Yes, I'm looking forward to seeing how Campbell goes. And Ellem, if he comes into the side. Hopefully both can boost their cases for being drafted. Campbell as a fairly high pick in 2020 and Ellem this year, as a possible late pick or rookie.

    And like you, I don't really hold much hope for beating the Lions. They've definitely benefited from the club having virtually no injuries, all season long. Consequently, they have got a lot of players who could be playing seniors, who instead, have been playing together in the NEAFL, and been developing a large amount of understanding and teamwork.

    Definitely a tough game for the swans. I think the tipping point for being competitive is 16+ listed players. That is not a knock on the toppies who are awesome, but they are unlisted juniors, whereas the listed players are pro athletes and should deliver far more. I think the swans are at 14 listed players which is light on. Further I imagine naismith will be on limited minutes, and some players will be lost to emergency for the seniors. (Brisbane doesn't have that issue as their seniors play on saturday).

    Regardless of the score I think this is the best game for gauging our listed players. If they can perform in a heavy loss against mature listed players then that is a positive.
