SwansCast Episode 1 - In The Beginning

Good afternoon to you all, I hope you're all enjoying the bye. It's a timely relief from the calamitous start to the season, and the Swans players agree.

Captain Josh Kennedy recently spoke about the need to reset and reload ahead of the Bulldogs game, after a poor start to the season culminated in a last gasp loss to the Hawks on Friday night.

It's a shame that the players need to "reset", given it's only round 11, but here we are, heading into the second half of the season, with the worst start since 1995, the last time we started 3-7 from the first 10 games.

“It was a really solid effort in the second half and we had our opportunities late but we just didn’t take them,” Kennedy said in the rooms post-game.

“It’s a mixture of disappointment in how we started, pride in the way we responded and then disappointed in how we weren’t able to capitalise on our opportunities late.

“It’s a tough one to swallow, but we can’t do anything about it now so we’ve got to stay on the horse and keep moving forward.”

“It’s a chance to take a breather,” he added.

“Obviously we’ll review the season thus far, what’s worked and what hasn’t – although I think it’s pretty clear for us – and make sure we’re coming with everything we’ve got for the back end of the year.”

Anyway, it's something for the players to worry about, I'm not going to spend a lot of time on it. It's worth asking why we're in this position, but I cover that in the first episode the SwansCast.

Right, time now for the very first episode of The Swans Blog SwansCast, and here with me to discuss the season is Stephen Treloar from Over The Line Sports, along with columnist and Swans enthusiast, Andrew Sertori. There's a bit of waffle, season review and Hawthorn autopsy. We chat about the players, the coaches, what's been good, what's been bad, what the club can do to turn their season around and if they can do it. We also take questions from social media.
