    I don’t know the answer to that but Sam’s sister died about a week ago.. (Sam posted this on his Instagram account.) So I would not be surprised if he has spent time away.

    The article at link below was pre the Crows match. Thank goodness Sam got to play that match before the season was suspended.

    Awful news, I hadn't heard about that. Very sad
    "You get the feeling that like Monty Python's Black Knight, the Swans would regard amputation as merely a flesh wound."

    Oh that's terrible. That probably explains why he has been away from the club. Thanks Meg

    Buddy "minor" surgery, listed at 8 weeks.
    Based on previous injury guidance, id say he is lucky to make preseason

    Terrible for Sam.
    "Buddy Goggles" are a bit like "Beer Goggles"
    They distort peoples view of reality, cause people to say silly things and are often followed by a nasty hangover.

    Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti has injured his ankle and will probably miss our game.

    Getting close now, first "excitement" Thursday team announcement. Selection will be interesting, coming off a win, albeit 12 weeks ago, assume it will just be Hewett for the injured Ronke.

    New world of flying in on the day for Essendon and having to share a plane with Norf, the protagonists in the "Marshmallow Wars" :-)

    Naismith in doubt with hamstring tightness! Knoll has just done his PCL too. Phark!

    My long touted No Ruckman Policy is coming to fruition.

    Didn’t go that well for us last year. I think Naismith is the answer our he can play regularly, which hasn’t been the case.

    I am hoping they don’t risk Naismith. Let Sinclair ruck this week so Naismith gets himself right. Then next week play Sinclair fwd and Naismith ruck.

    Time for Sinkers to step up, AGAIN. He's the man.
