SWANS READY FOR FIGHT TO FINISH

ST PETERSBURG SWANS - CLINT JONES

CLINT JONES in action against Curtis Speller of the Tampa Bay Bombers.

With the 2018 Major League Footy Premiership Season now well into the run home, the St. Petersburg Swans – at 5-3, and in first place on the ladder – are in need of one more positive result in order to lock up a berth in the MLF Finals.

Having led the table wire-to-wire since April, that state of play would have been hard to imagine earlier this summer.

Two consecutive losses after a sizzling 5-1 start have allowed the Tampa Bay Bombers and Florida Lions  to climb into the thick of things at 4-2, with each having ample remaining opportunities to take over the league lead.

With a reschedule of a crucial match with cross-state rivals the Miami Saints (3-1) still pending, the St. Petersburg side has a distinct disadvantage, as both Tampa Bay and Florida have at least six more matches remaining – plenty of chances to pass the Swans by.

As MLF sides begin to coalesce into set roster lists for the 2018-19 campaign, the Swans side is also beginning to gel around a young core.

That young group will need to find its footing as the 2018 summer season comes to end – and before the MLF 2018-19 Premiership Season kicks off, Saturday, October 27.
