Longmire fronts the press ahead of training

John Longmire fronted the press this morning ahead of training to answer some of the burning questions those in the media ask.

Longmire confirmed that Rohan, Tippett and Rampe would all be in the mix for selection this week, providing they all recover.

"He has done some contact work this week and he will step that up today once we have the facts in front of us," Longmire told the press."


When asked about Florent, Longmire confirmed that he had been rested to freshen him up.

"We rested him last week and we think it will do him the world of good to freshen up."


Longmire also confirmed that Aliir Aliir could be available for selection this week.

"He has put himself up in that selection mix after playing well last week."


Great news for the Swans, especially Aliir Aliir, who was axed for arriving late to training on Saturday morning before the Lions clash.

The Swans Blog is an independent fan blog and community platform. Our content takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. We do it because we love what we do and we believe our perspective matters - because it may be your perspective too.

If everyone who reads our blog, who likes it, is supporting it, our future would be much more secure.
