    He changed schools for Yr 11 and 12 (I think to Vic) in order to go to a "footy school" to progress his footy and get onto the recruiting radar. I caught up with him again when he was first taken by the Swans as he came back to his family home for a bit. After the Dogs he was playing up in the NT, wasn't he? I lost contact with Ed over the years so it's good to hear he's now a psychologist.

    Probably was given a scholarship for his sporting prowess. Public schools cherry pick kids to enhance their chances of winning APS titles despite having nothing to do with their junior development.

    Shane Mumford has played 3 games for GWS, which they won. All their losses occurred in his absence.
    It's ridiculous that any team should be so utterly dependent on a 34 year old.
    PS
    Some on here may as if there is no life without our 34 year old, thank goodness the results prove otherwise.

    That is a good watch. I was surprised to learn that ROK laid 15 tackles in 2012 GF.

    Jones out for most of the year now, and Hanners out for who knows how long. Top trading by Swans.

    Zac's career at Swans was often interrupted by injury. Same at Saints. Now looking chronic unfortunately. Liked him as a player although he could cough it up a bit.

    We got Elijah Taylor out of the Jones trade. At least Taylor is not a list clogger burning through the medical budget.
