Australian Football League Live Geelong Cats vs Sydney Swans Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Seasons Week 06 AFL Stream. Geelong Cats vs Sydney Swans match will be kickoff at GMHBA Stadium, Geelong, VIC, Australia, Saturday 28 April 2018 online, 13:45 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Geelong and Sydney are among a number of sides with three wins from the five rounds of football that have been played so far in 2017.
The Cats come off a great win on the road, defeating Port Adelaide by 34 points, while Sydney missed out by 10 points against the Adelaide Crows at the SCG.
Both boast star studded midfield lineups Joel Selwood and Patrick Dangerfield seem to be permanent fixtures in their best players each week but it is the Cats younger brigade of young players that have really stood up. Tim Kelly and Brandon Parfitt are a couple of examples of youngsters that the Cats fans can be excited about.
Sydney’s on-ball division have been slightly below their best. Luke Parker has been solid but Josh Kennedy will need to lift his output if the Swans are to take this out, with their spearhead, Lance Franklin, out with injury.
Buddy has kicked 18 goals this year and will be sorely missed. Isaac Heeney is the Swans next highest contributor with six goals.
Another interesting factor in this game is that little separates the two sides in a number of statistical measures. Geelong enjoy the home ground advantage but the Swans have a great record at the venue. It shapes as a real flip of the coin job.
Geelong thumped Sydney by 59 points in last year’s finals series, sending the Swans out of contention. John Longmire’s side were a tad one-dimensional with Lance Franklin being outnumbered in their forward line before Geelong’s midfielders set up the likes of Patrick Dangerfield (who played up the ground that night) and Daniel Menzel. That par combined for six goals.
Prior to that match, Sydney won three in a row against the Cats and two of those were played at GMHBA Stadium, while the other was in the 2016 Preliminary Final.
The big news here is that Lance Franklin and Daniel Hannebery will miss for Sydney. Joel Selwood has been cleared to play for Geelong but his brother, Scott, may miss after suffering concussion last weekend. Gary Ablett and Tom Hawkins are both a chance to return from injury.
