Sydney vs Hawthorn Preview

The Swans came away with the four points last time out, avoiding a scare against the Saints.

Sydney can consider themselves lucky to come away with a win against St Kilda, who missed very gettable opportunities, with John Longmire’s side coming away with a nine-point triumph.

Lance Franklin is set to face Hawthorn for the 11th time, averaging 2.5 goals a match against his former side. ‘Buddy’ is only 32 goals away from reaching the 1,000-goal milestone, which has only been achieved by five players in the history of the game. Sam frost will have the big job on the tall talisman.

Meanwhile, the Hawks have gone on a run of five defeats, which has seen them drop to 17th.

Hawthorn will have the benefit of regrouping after having a bye last week, as they look for only their third win of the season. Scoring has been an issue for Alastair Clarkson’s side this season, being the second-worst attacking side in the competition.

They’ve only managed to kick more than 80 points three times this season, with 30-year-old Luke Breust their highest goalkicker with 18 this season. However, recent history is on their side, with recent contests being low-scoring encounters.

You can expect a very physical encounter between these two sides, with a strong rivalry spurring in the early 2010s. Where they met in four finals matches in four years, including two Grand Finals.

Sydney has been superb this season, and they should be able to win this one comfortably.

Swans vs Hawks Team News

The Swans are expected to rest Chad Warner, and if so, James Bell or Lewis Taylor are the likely replacements.

The Hawks will most likely only make one change with Jaeger O’Meara returning from concussion.

The two sides last met in Round 8 last season which saw the Swans win by 8 points.
