Perfect oval for him to play half his games. His lack of speed less likely to be found out on that little shoe box oval.
If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

Speed is overrated. Tom Mitchell is slower than Grigg and it doesn’t stop him destroying the comp

DRAFT UPDATE: With pick 44, the Swans take outside midfielder-come-wingman Justin McInerney

Height: 187cm
Weight: 72kg

18-year-old McInerney underwent a growth over the last two years that propelled him onto the AFL recruiters watch list.

Justin is an excellent running prospect, running 3.01s in the 20m sprint and was solid in the yo-yo test. His pace on the outside is his obvious strength, while he was close to an elite ball user.

DRAFT UPDATE: With pick 51, the Swans have taken fleet-footed Zac Foot from the Dandenong Stingrays

Height: 180cm
Weight: 71kg
Position: Midfielder/Forward

Foot, who missed out on the Stingrays in 2017, finally got his chance in a practice match this year. From local player, he bolted on to the AFL radar.

His strengths include his pace and ability to cover the ground, his work rate, but more importantly, his classy disposal.

If he becomes captain, does he become a ruler?

At least they've got Tippett on the list. :lol:

--------------------------------

The Swans’ gamble to recruit injury plagued Cat Daniel Menzel has already hit a speed bump, with the forward undergoing groin surgery.
The 27-year-old won’t return to training until February, reports the Herald Sun.

While the news is less than ideal for Sydney, particularly given superstar forward Lance Franklin is also facing a delayed start to pre-season and could be in doubt for Round 1, it’s understood the club wanted to get on the front foot with Menzel.

Indeed, Menzel’s 2018 campaign was cruelled after injections into his groin backfired, limiting him to just 13 games.

Sydney will now be sweating on the fitness of Sam Reid, a prodigiously talented but injury prone key position player, who has the potential to alleviate the burden on the Swans’ younger forwards.

In the Qualifying Final against GWS, the likes of Will Hayward (20) and Tom McCartin (18) struggled, with Franklin inhibited by a groin injury sustained late in the season.

While the duo will be better for the experience, the 26-year-old Reid — who only played one match in 2018 because of quad and Achilles issues — would ideally be the Swans’ key forward in the absence of Franklin.

In essence, the Swans didn’t pay much for Menzel.

He was recruited as a free agent, and even if he only plays a handful of games for the club it may well prove to be a sage decision on the behalf of list manager Kinnear Beatson and his team.

But the Swans’ glaring problem towards the end of this season was their inability to kick a winning score when Franklin wasn’t firing.

A forward line with Buddy, Reid and Menzel — not to mention Hayward, McCartin, Ben Ronke and Tom Papley — appears, on paper, rather formidable.

But they need to get out on the park.

The Swans kick off their 2019 campaign against the Western Bulldogs at Marvel Stadium on Saturday 23 March.
