Australian Football League AFL Round 11 First Match Sydney Swans vs Geelong Cats Live Games are Kick Off Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney, 29 May Thursday 2014.
Sydney Swans midfield dynamo Ben McGlynn will come back in the side after missing the demolition of Essendon with illness whilst Tom Mitchell is likely to return after having 64 disposals in the reserves. Ruckman Mike Pyke will miss with a hamstring injury. For the Cats, Steve Johnson will return from suspension but defender Tom Lonergan will have to pass a concussion test in order to play.
The Cats responded to a heavy loss against Fremantle with a solid 20-point win at home against North Melbourne. Geelong spearhead Tom Hawkins has kicked seven goals in the last two weeks. Geelong is second on the ladder whilst the Swans sit fifth having won their past five straight including a 50-point mauling of Essendon two weeks ago.
