Surprisingly the Swans have named a fairly competitive side to face the Roos. If past pre seasons are anything to go by, coach Longmire normally selects his weakest side to avoid injuries. It will be great to see Sam Reid back in action for the Swans, if he can stand up in this game without Buddy, his name will be moved into the team for round 1. It’s the start of a new generation at Arden St with no Petrie, Harvey or Firrito wearing the blue and white stripes in 2017. The Wolf is anticipating all players moving around different positions to give Brad Scott a clearer idea of how they want to set up this season. For this reason, the Wolf thinks the Swans should have enough structure to take home the win.
Sydney’s first pick in the 2016 Draft Oliver Florent ($41) makes his club debut in this fixture. He’s a smart user around goals and could be in line to replace the injured Tom Papley in the early rounds of 2017. For the Roos, young Ryan Clarke ($10) played 6 matches last year and averaged 17.5 disposals per game including a 27-disposal effort against Collingwood. With the experience lost in their midfield, the Wolf thinks Clarke is in for a big year and the price of $10 will not be around if Clarke can have 20 or more disposals here.
