It has been a year of contrasting fortunes for the two sides. The perennial battlers, Brisbane, look to have turned things around in season 2019 and have won four of their first six. They are just one victory away from the total of just five wins from last year.
For Sydney, it has just about been a case of the opposite. The Swans, who have not missed the finals since 2009, are just about out of contention after managing to win just one game so far this season.
John Longmire’s side faded out of it last weekend when they went down to the GWS Giants by 41 points. Their only win this year came against Carlton in round three. Brisbane enjoyed a 49 point win over their local rivals, the Gold Coast Suns and find themselves in 7th spot on the ladder at the conclusion of Round 6.
Little separates the sides in a number of statistical measures. Sydney are averaging more disposals with Josh Kennedy and Zak Jones finding plenty of the footy.
However, Brisbane have their own ball magnet in the middle of the ground in the form of Lachie Neale. The former Docker leads the competition for total disposals and comes off a best on ground display against the Suns.
The difference might be Brisbane’s options up forward. The Lions are averaging just under 20 points per game more than Sydney and Eric Hipwood, Charlie Cameron and Cam Rayner have been focal points.
Brisbane’s Harris Andrews and Rhys Mathieson are both chances to return from their respective hamstring injuries. Sydney’s hopes will firm if Lance Franklin is fit but the star forward is in doubt with his hamstring issue.
The Swans have a lengthy injury list with Heath Grundy, Nick Smith, Jarryd McVeigh and Will Hayward among those on the sidelines.
It has been one way traffic in recent years with Sydney winning the past 11 games between the two sides. Six of those have been played at the GABBA.
Last year it was the Swans that racked up an 18 point win with Josh Kennedy and Jake Lloyd among the better players. Mitch Robinson and Stefan Martin were Brisbane’s best.
I’m not fully convinced about the Lions just yet but their two losses were against quality opposition and the Swans really are battling in 2019.
