    For $2/day it's well worth having Fox.

    Anyone going to check out training, from a safe social distance of course! Be really good to get some RWO insight as to how the boys are looking and moving. Gould should be fit after two months down on the farm.

Think the AFL needs to address this quickly otherwise it will really favour teams with few/no injuries and more mature squads.
    The Age mentioned that the swans and giants were going to look at playing weekly friendlies for the players not selected.

    Agreed. All but the Bulldogs would generally be considered in our bracket. Three out of four would be a fantastic result. Even two out of four would be commendable for our young team.

    With the short physical preparation and players returning from injury, it is good we only travel interstate once in the first month.

    The Swans/Giants (and the Suns/Lions) really need to work better at supporting each other. The VFL/Victorian clubs will never allow the diminution of their myriad advantages.
    The Tom Papley Backpack $39.99 from the RWO merchandise tab - if only!

    This is a pretty big disadvantage for is compared to the Vic teams playing each other (I assume).

    With other players from his draft retiring does anyone think Franklin's body is gone as far as playing goes.
