Australian Football League Live Western Bulldogs vs Sydney Swans Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Seasons Week 4 AFL Stream. Western Bulldogs vs Sydney Swans match will be kickoff at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 14 April 2018 online, 16:35 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
One of the big games of AFL Round 4 will be when the Western Bulldogs take on the Sydney Swans at Etihad Stadium on Saturday April 14.
The Bulldogs bounced back last weekend but face a red-hot Swans outfit and the action can be seen on Fox Footy.
The Western Bulldogs battled in the first two home and away games, going down to GWS by 82 points before losing to West Coast by 51. However, they rebounded with a strong win over Essendon in Round 3, defeating the Bombers by 19.
Sydney have a superior win-loss record, winning two of three. Their wins came against West Coast in Round 1 and GWS last weekend by 16 points at the SCG. In Round 2 they were rolled by Port Adelaide to the tune of 23 points.
John Longmire’s side are playing their typical brand of football, dominating sides at winning the clearances and contested football. Josh Kennedy, Isaac Heeney and Luke Parker will all have plenty of influence against the Bulldogs and can give the Swans the upper hand in the middle.
The Dogs will also need to find a way to stop Lance Franklin, who is easily the best forward in the competition at the moment. Franklin has booted 14 goals in the three games this year but has also set up plenty of others by roaming further up the ground.
Bulldogs fans can take a fair degree of optimism into the game, given that the Dogs midfield group played what was some of their best footy for a long time last weekend. Their side should also have possibly beaten Essendon by a lot more than what the margin suggests as they booted an inaccurate 14.20.
Look for Lachie Hunter, Luke Dahlhaus and Jack Macrae to attempt to match motors with Sydney’s star-studded midfield and it will be interesting to see where Marcus Bontempelli spends most of his time. The Bont booted three goals in the win over the Dons last weekend, playing mainly as a forward.
