    Re: Early Trade Rumours for 2022

    I think he would have a sense of owing the Swans for giving him a chance and there would have to be a significant difference in contract length and $$$ for him to contemplate leaving.
  2. Re: Always Right Match Committee Round 22 v GWS Giants at Marvel on Saturday

    I guess one reason for VDM remaining is you don't bring a guy back from a really long break out of the team to instantly drop him unless he is awful or not doing what he's instructed to do.

    Re: Early Trade Rumours for 2022

    I'm not sure either Jones or JJ contracts will be sufficient to trigger compensation, but at the most we are talking third round picks.

    McLean is out of the 26 altogether.
  5. Re: Always Right Match Committee Round 22 v GWS Giants at Marvel on Saturday

    The alternative is Stef playing mostly forward, relieving English in the ruck. Surely that isn't the plan?

    The Stef ruck with English forward model did work early last year when Martin was fit....
  6. Re: Always Right Match Committee Round 22 v GWS Giants at Marvel on Saturday

    Good to see Pruess out so he can't maim anyone.

    Surely Tim is going to have to suck it up and play a significant amount of game time forward.
  7. Re: Why do we seem to think adding players is 'The Answer'?

    To be fair BAD said 26-28 and all of those except Cloke would have been in that age range when recruited I think.

    Especially when you add what they tip in for Treloar. It's a fair whack for 2 players to not play at your club.

    He has reportedly met a contract trigger for 2023 so he would have to be either physically or mentally (or both) cooked to walk away from what is likely a fairly lucrative contract.

    The flip side of Richards on the wing is Williams back. It's a lose/lose situation.
