That's it for today, thanks for all the questions and comments, good to see the Hawks and Swans fans still jousting, too! Not much break between rounds this week, less than 72 hours in fact, will grab a breather when I can! See you back here at 12pm next Monday.

 

Discuss the footy issues that matter to you with The Age's voice of the people, Rohan Connolly.
