Harry Marsh was delisted but was reselected in the Rookie draft. I feel sorry for the Elephant
With the inclusion of Sinclair in the ruck likely to push Tippet into the forward line more, do you think Sam Reid will be playing less forward time in 2016?

whats with all the tongue work?The Swans are tall enough with out Sinclair with Buddy, Reid and Tippo.Like Matty, i expect Tippo to be the no 1 ruck with Sinclair No 2. Whom ever isnt rucking will play FF with buddy scouting the HF line
Full-forward Lance Franklin will have an operation to repair a recurring finger injury, but will be fit to return to training as scheduled in January.Franklin, who hasnâ€™t missed a session since returning to training on November 30, has opted for the minor operation to repair a bone spur which has hindered his ball handling so far this pre-season.Head Physiotherapist and Rehabilitation Coordinator Matt Cameron said the procedure shouldnâ€™t hinder Franklinâ€™s program during the Christmas break before the players return on January 4.
Talia dislocated a finger during a tackling drill and has since had surgery to repair the injury while McVeigh and Jones continued steady comebacks from respective knee operations during the off-season.Cameron said McVeighâ€™s procedure, to repair damaged knee cartilage, was more extensive with the co-captain unable to run for the past three months.
Luke Parker, Kieren Jack and Sam Reid are continuing to make steady progress in their recovery from season ending injuries.Parker (ankle) has already joined the main group for full training while Jack (knee) and Reid (hamstring) have been completing modified sessions and should re-join the squad in mid-January.Ben McGlynn (calf), Isaac Heeney (knee), Jordan Foote (shin) and Sam Naismith (groin) are on modified programs with the intent of nursing them back into full training in the coming weeks.
