The Sydney Swans are on a roll and the Grand Finalists from 2016 can continue their march towards the finals when they take on the Gold Coast Suns at the SCG on Saturday afternoon in AFL Round 16.
The Swans, who have won seven of their past eight games, are heavily fancied to prevail in the clash that gets underway at 4.35PM.
Fox Footy will broadcast the game, while AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
Sydney are regarded as the form side of the competition and the successful club are making another charge towards September. After dropping their first six games, the Swans have come back with a vengeance and were way too classy for an injury depleted Melbourne last weekend, accounting for the Demons by 35 points.
John Longmire’s side have been posted as $1.13 favourites in the early head to head betting with CrownBet, however, the premiership winning coach will be urging his side to be at their ferocious best, as the Suns can surprise on their day.
The Queensland based outfit have won six from 14 in season 2017 and are just one game behind the Swans on the ladder. They come off a 19-point win over North Melbourne in Round 15 in what was Gary Ablett’s 300th game.
The little master contributed with 37 disposals in that win, while the former Crow, Jarryd Lyons, produced his best game yet for his new side with 39 touches of his own.
Tom Lynch turned his form around with five majors. That trio will all need to produce big matches, as will Steven May, who takes on Lance Franklin in the Suns back half of the ground.
Franklin leads the competition for goals scored. He has booted 40 majors for the year and has also been very damaging in the 50m-70m arc, setting up a number of others with his silky skills. The battle between May and Franklin will be a major highlight.
The two sides play contrasting games. Sydney will get on top at winning the contested possessions. Josh Kennedy and Luke Parker have been dominant in this aspect of the game and will be influential.
The Suns are good at sharing the ball around and lead the competition for uncontested disposals, while they are 5th for total marks. If they can execute their skills on the small dimensions of the SCG, they may just have the game to take it to the Swans.
However, the home side should be full of confidence and it is hard to see them dropping this one. A win may see them sneak into the eight at the conclusion of the round, provided that other results go their way.
