    Dream Team- Sydney Swans Team

    The club has arranged a competition to name your best SYDNEY Swans team since 1982

    This is mine:

    Mark Bayes; Andrew Dunkley; Craig Bolton
    Dennis Carroll; Paul Roos; Nick Smith
    Barry Round; Paul Kelly, Gerald Healy
    Adam Goodes; Greg Williams; Josh Kennedy
    Ryan O'Keefe; Lance Franklin; Isaac Heeney
    Barry Hall; Tony Lockett; Tony Morwood
    IC: Brett Kirk; Jake Lloyd; Luke Parker; Dan Hannebery

    I am sure there will be lots of discussions and respectful disagreements.

    Also felt guilty to leave Jude Bolton, Darryn Creswell and Leo Barry out. However there is only 22 permitted.

    Like Blood Fever said I’d definitely pick O’Loughlin over Morwood. But I’d be leaving Heeney out for O’Loughlin. Paul Williams for Jake Lloyd is another.

    I love this kind of thing.

    Surprised no mentions of Leo Barry or Jarrad McVeigh. Surely both are ahead of Jake Lloyd.

    My team would be:

    Nick Smith Leo Barry Craig Bolton
    Tadhg Kennelly Ted Richards LRT
    Josh Kennedy Paul Kelly Gerard Healy
    Adam Goodes Jude Bolton Darren Jolly
    Lance Franklin Tony Lockett Michael O'Loughlin
    Ryan O'Keefe Barry Hall Warwick Capper
    IC: Greg Williams Jarrad McVeigh Brett Kirk Darren Cresswell

    I think you did a good job. I'd be inclined to included Jude over Heeney but I imagine in the long term Heeney will probably end up the better player

    Didn't realise both McVeigh and Paul Williams were not in. Should be but almost impossible task as a selector.

    Interesting full back position between Dunkley, Leo Barry and Teddy Richards.
    Dunkley, your old fashioned bulky defender who was a great mark, but couldnt hit the side of a barn from close range with his kicking.
    Vs a Leo barry who played above his height and provided excellent run out of defence.
    Vs richards who is a bit of both.

    Although at the time, I though Leo Barry was our week link, Ive since come around to view him as the early adoption of the modern full back, and therefore gets my vote.

    Also Paul Roos is lock for CHB surely!

    Dennis Carroll?
    Mark Browning?
    Steven Wright?
    Bernard Toohey?
    Merv Neagle?
    Warwick Capper?
    Barry Mitchell?
    David Murphy?
    Dale Lewis?

    What a difficult task!

    Rod Carter at FB & Dunks can replace Craig Bolton in a back pocket for me

    I know it is slightly off topic but if we could choose 4 players to add to our current team I would choose Paul Kelly, Plugger, Goodes and Leo Barry (at their best!). Micky O would be my next and then Tom Mitchell because if he gets over his leg break he provides the glue that allows stars to shine. My selection is restricted however because I have only been a serious Swans supporter since the Plugger days.

    We would still be exposed in the ruck. If we had to take 4.
    Auto selections:
    Plugger, Goodes.

    Fits our needs:
    Jolly, Greg Williams.
