Aiming for a fitting Anzac performance

Aiming for a fitting Anzac performance

If sides are not on their game they will be vulnerable. It�s critical we take our wins where we can.

We�ve shared a similar start to the season with Swans having both played some good and bad football to come away with two wins and two losses each.

The Swans line-up has pace and a blend of youth and experience so we expect a strong challenge.

Jordan Jones is an outside chance to return from a hamstring injury. If it was a Saturday game we would rule him out, but given it�s a Monday, the extra days� recovery leave a slim opportunity for him.

If he doesn�t play this week he�s likely to return next round against Claremont. He showed promising signs at training on Tuesday night.

As far as selection for this week goes, we�ve had Corey Chalmers and Blake Wilhelm in good form for the reserves, while Ray Bartholomew and Marc Crisp are getting close to a league recall as well.

In a first for the senior side, we�ll be attending the Joondalup dawn service on Anzac Day.

As we�re not playing on Saturday, we�ve taken the opportunity to represent West Perth as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings. I had a discussion with the leadership group and we decided it would be appropriate to pay our respects. The colts side will attend the Wanneroo service.

On Monday, we�ll aim for a performance that respects the sacrifice our veterans have made for us.
