AFL – Sydney Swans coach John Longmire says he’ll continue to use Buddy Franklin (pictured)  up the ground with Sam Reid parked in the forward line and Kurt Tippett in the ruck.

Franklin has been training the house down for the Swans in pre season training so far leaving the coach excited about the clubs prospects for 2016.

Having three such dominant players who can play up forward gives the Swans some real flexibility and Longmire says the club will look to continue that pattern when the 2016 season finally begins.
