Australian Football League Live Geelong Cats vs Sydney Swans Stream AFL 2015 Seasons Week 19 math will be kick off at Simonds Stadium, Geelong, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 08 August 2015 online, 19.40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Geelong vs Sydney Both coming off big wins, can the Swans keep it going? Or will Geelong take another prisoner down at Kardinia Park? The Wolf is very keen on Sydney.
The Swans will be sweating on the fitness of star forward Lance Franklin (back). Mike Pyke (knee) and Gary Rohan (hamstring) are likely to miss whilst Adam Goodes should return. For the Cats, Mitch Clark (calf), Steve Johnson (suspended) and Rhys Stanley (foot) will all miss with Mathew Stokes, George Horlin-Smith, Cory Gregson and Jared Rivers a chance to play.
The Swans are fourth on the ladder with 12 wins and five losses. Having bounced back from two big defeats to Hawthorn and West Coast with a 52-point win over Adelaide. They rank 8th for scoring and fifth for least points against this season. They are 3-4 (2-5 against the line) vs top eight teams this season. Geelong is eighth on the ladder with nine wins and seven losses. They are 12th in scoring and seventh in least points conceded this season. The Cats are 3-5 (2-6 against the line) vs the top eight this season.
Sydney and Geelong have met 216 times with Geelong leading 119-97. Geelong has won 12 of their last 16 games against the Swans, though the Swans have won the last two by a combined total of 153-points. Since 2010, Geelong is 6-4 (7-3 against the line) vs the Swans. The Cats have won 49 of their past 56 games at Simonds Stadium. Geelong is 22-4 (12-14 against the line) at Simonds Stadium since the start of 2012 but are 3-3 (1-5 against the line) in Geelong this season. The Swans are 21-9 (20-10 at the line) when outside of Sydney in the past three seasons – that’s 15-4 (11-8 against the line) in 2014-15. They have won just one of their last 10 in Geelong. Josh Kennedy is averaging over 33 possessions per game in the last five weeks.
The Wolf is chips in on the Swans this weekend. Geelong might have beaten Brisbane by 56-points but that was on the back of Josh Walker kicking five straight (unlikely to replicate that again, ever!) and Dayne Beams and Michael Leuenberger both getting injured; plus beating the Lions isn’t exactly too hard at the moment! The Swans found a bit of their sparkle back against Adelaide with all of their midfield finally playing well at the same time, Benny McGlynn is a welcome addition to their side and Kurt Tippett’s hands were very sticky. With a nice run in towards finals, the Swans will be looking to build their momentum with a win over Geelong.
