Sydney vs West Coast Preview


The Swans fell to a heartbreaking 10-point defeat against finals bound Port Adelaide last time out.

Sydney was almost dragged over the line by some Buddy Franklin heroics. The champion kicked four goals as he gets closer and closer to the 1,000-goal milestone. He currently sits on 973 goals.

The Swans good start to the season has put them in an unpredicted strong position to make the 2021 finals season. However, two losses on the trot against Hawthorn and Port Adelaide have jeopardised their chances.

Meanwhile, the Eagles were thoroughly disappointing in their heavy defeat against premiership favourite Western Bulldogs.

Adam Simpson’s side was outplayed in every facet of the game and can consider themselves lucky to only lose by 55 points, after conceding 20 more scorings shots.

The most disappointing area of the match was the midfield work, with the Dogs dominating the clearances by a margin of 15. It could be a very physical battle in the middle against Luke Parker and Josh Kennedy.

As finals fast approaches, the 2018 premiership side need to gain confidence by beating and competing with sides inside the top eight, starting with Sydney on Sunday afternoon.

This has the makings to be an entertaining contest in which I believe the Eagles will bounce back.
