Well, I think getting stabbed in the guts while sucking on the worlds sourest lemon would be an enjoyable activity, compared to sitting through 2 and half hours of mental torture.
There's a long way to go for this team, but they've got to stick to the task at hand.
B: Nick Smith, Heath Grundy, Zak Jones
HB: Callum Mills, Lewis Melican, Jeremy Laidler
C: Isaac Heeney, Josh Kennedy, Jake Lloyd
HF: George Hewett, Lance Franklin, Gary Rohan
F: Will Hayward, Sam Reid, Tom Papley
FOL: Callum Sinclair, Luke Parker, Dan Hannebery
I/C: James Rose, Harry Cunningham, Brandon Jack, Nic Newman
|40: Nick Smith||Neither a good nor bad day, did OK, made a few mistake but showed effort|
|39: Heath Grundy||Lead to the ball and easily beaten by Casboult and Kruezer before his injury|
|10: Zak Jones||Showed heart when the Swans were getting killed, dragged his team back into it|
|14: Callum Mills||Always tried hard, always did his best, always worked hard, never gave up|
|43: Lewis Melican (R)||He's a capable footballer, no doubt.|
|11: Jeremy Laidler||Never seen a player lead to the ball as much as poor Jeremy|
|5: Isaac Heeney||Getting better, showed clean hands and good vision when the Swans needed it, faded badly|
|12: Josh Kennedy||Still trying his best, but getting no support|
|44: Jake Lloyd||Accumulator, but even with 32 disposals, 0 tackles. Sigh. Chip kicks ahoy hoy!|
|28: Nic Newman||Played well after coming back from the unexplained drop|
|23: Lance Franklin||A dirty day and doesn't look fit. Still worked hard, still tackled, 19 and 1 goal.|
|41: Tom Papley||Gave away 2 50m penalties at crucial times, 2 goals, but not much good.|
|18: Callum Sinclair||This guy frustrates so much. Smashed in the ruck, constantly lead to the ball, finishes with 15 HO, 6 tackles, 1.1 and 11 contested possessions.|
|26: Luke Parker||A dirty dirty day. Nothing went right, couldn't mark it, couldn't kick it straight, just couldn't do anything. Nice goal though.|
|4: Dan Hannebery||Faded in the 2nd half and barely looks fit. He spent a lot of time in the last quarter forward of the pack.|
|1: James Rose||Couldn't get near it, 6 disposals, 1 behind|
|7: Harry Cunningham||Mediocre footballer doing what he does best, 16 disposals, 12 _uncontested_, 3 tackles|
|33: Brandon Jack||9 disposals, 3 I50s and 5 tackles, had a chance early in the 4th but fluffed it.|
|29: George Hewett||10 tackles, what an effort, had 1/6th of the teams total tackles. He's one of Longmire's "lesser lights" showing how it's done|
|9: Will Hayward||Kicked the first goal of the game, finished with 2, looks like a capable footballer.|
|16: Gary Rohan||He was by far the worst player on the ground before he went off after knocking himself out. Finished with 2 disposals. Won a free kick that was instantly reversed. AFL score of 10.|
|20: Sam Reid||Worked hard all game, but forced to play a role not good at, while cutting us off at the knees in the forward line. Robbing Paul and even robbing Peter with this one.|
Bonus Rating: 0/10 for umpires failing to stop play twice for unconscious Swans players, the pricks.
