    From Discover on Google No longer all at sea, Dawson is finding his feet as a Swan
    Just catching up with my RWO reading, so only just saw this. Thanks for the heads up on an interesting article, Mark26. I agree with your conclusions: let's re-sign him, and keep him on the park.

Watching him play in the NEAFL, he was used on ball and in the midfield. He showed an excellent turn of speed, good foot and hand skills and was hard at the ball. Should we be playing him there at AFL level with an eye to the future? It would get him more involved then in our forward 50, especially as the ball is not getting there anyway. I know there are arguments against playing a youngster in the midfield, due to conditioning and size but other clubs are doing it successfully (Walsh, Butters, Drew, Ross, Constable, Stack etc). Blakey could potentially be our version of the Bont.
    I wondered if they could use him in the ruck

    The dogs have put Bont in there and Port have used Westhoff on occasion.
