THE TEAM NEWS

SYDNEY SWANS

  • Sydney Swans lost for the third game in a row as they came out second best in an extremely low-scoring contest with reigning premiers Richmond last week and they will be eager to snap that streak as soon as possible.
  • The Swans defended well but struggled with the ball as they managed to post just 26 points and their opening quarter reverse of 21-9 proved to be too much to come back from as they never got themselves at any point in the contest.
  • After that disappointing outing, the Swans have made four changes with Hayden McLean and Sam Gray dropped while Isaac Heeney and Josh P. Kennedy are injured so Elijah Taylor is handed a debut while Aliir Aliir, Callum Sinclair and Tom McCartin also receive call-ups.

GOLD COAST SUNS

  • Gold Coast Suns slipped to 3-3 for the season as they suffered their second consecutive loss in their game with Melbourne last week and the Suns will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat.
  • Despite starting well to lead after the first quarter, the Demons were able to take the lead at the half and that is how it remained until the end of the game with the Suns failing to get back in front.
  • It was another decent showing from the Suns and that has been reflected in their team selection here with just one change made from last week with Brayden Fiorini omitted at the expense of Wil Powell.

THE PREDICTION

Sydney Swans and Gold Coast Suns have both struggled in their most recent matches and they will be desperate to get back to winning ways in this clash. The Swans have lost their last three while the Suns have failed to win their last two, although the visiting side have arguably performed better in those games. The Swans have made big changes to their side this week but consistency could be key and that can see the Suns come out on top here.
