    Interesting to see Mills named at half-back and Campbell and Ling in the starting 18.

    B:
    Cunningham, Rampe, Melican
    HB: J.Dawson, T.McCartin , Hewett
    C: Florent, J.Kennedy, N.Blakey
    HF: J.Bell, Hayward, Heeney
    F: Wicks, Reid, Papley
    Foll: Hickey, Parker, Mills
    I/C: Campbell, J.Rowbottom, C.Warner, E.Gulden, Ling , McDonald, Sinclair, Clarke

    Don’t like seeing Mills named at half back. But I’m assuming he WILL play in the midfield.

    Very happy to see Ling, Campbell, Gulden and McDonald named. What’s happened to Gould? Not even an emergency. And Clarke over Stephens?!?!

    Clarke's spot to lose then. Both preferred wingmen not included. Preseason often flips plans on their heads. Would think we went into preseason back in Dec with the plan to have Stephens and McInerney on the wings by rd 1. Both look unlikely now.

    RB and Warner fighting for the last midfield spot. Bell and Wicks battling for the last def forward spot. Will make for interesting viewing.

    Gould looked a long way off AFL ready last week.
    Stephens on the outer is interesting. Particularly Clarke sneaking in.
    We shouldn't read too much in to the positions in a team list in pre season - but I'll be watching how they use Sinclair with interesting. If he's not starting as a key forward, and they prefer Hayward, he's a big risk at getting a Rd1 spot

    I think the Swans Site version is more consistent with our fans' expectation (Except with Hewett listed in the HB).

    Notes:
    * Sydney Swans co-captain and the brave warrior Dane Rampe as well as our consistent midfield workhorse George Hewett will return to the side.
    * 2019 first-round pick Dylan Stephens is only listed as one of the emergencies together with fan's favourite McInerney.
    * O'Riordan, Gould and Amartey now behind the pack.
    * No surprise early return of Buddy.

    PS the Umpires will be Chris Donlon (1), Nick Brown (13), David Harris (24), Paul Rebeschini (31)

    McInerney has been coming back from injury, so explainable. Would be interested in the story re Stephens. Long term, I’m completely comfortable where he’ll get to.

    Short term, maybe it’s just the usual Swans thing of being coy about small injuries or maybe a slight bit of there is something very specific they want him to work on.

    McInerney is returning from injury, so I can still see him in the round 1 side.

    Clarke is am interesting one. Huge tank like Stephens, which will be very important with full length quarters and less interchange. But I cannot believe he’ll be keeping Stephens out of the side for long. Although he can tag ...

    Which brings us to Hewett. One of the biggest question marks is his role, given the movement of Mills into the mids, and others waiting in the wings, but can also tag.

    Interesting that Freo are moving Fyfe forward to allow their younger mids to grow. Wonder if one of Parker / Joey / Hewett will play forward to make room for Mills, RB and the next generation.

    I feel very positive about this season. Feel like our personnel and game plan are suited to the faster, attacking football that the AFL are encouraging

    We really don’t know what’s going on. They could also be giving Clarke the opportunity to fight for the spot.

    Neither of the top draftees from 2019 are in the frame but all three from last year are.

    That may also be about lack of exposure at this level, so maybe we’ve more need to test them (and Ling who I’m bullish about) out than others.

    Maybe the Bloods is right about the Chad?
