Swans to battle brutal start to the season with fitness woes around key players
The notoriously slow-starting Swans look to face an uphill battle once again from the outset.
Our partners at Punting Stars touched on their tough early schedule a few weeks back and AFL.com revealed a star midfielder behind on his preseason workload: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-01-31/midfielder-furthest-behind-of-sydneys-fab-four
Plus, where will young guns Heeney and Mills spend their time in 2018? A good article on AFL.com regarding this. Two exceptional talents that should be on your fantasy radar.
Tom Harley says Dan Hannebery is the 'furthest behind' of the recovering Swans.https://t.co/gHKI6ZkMVr
