THE PREDICTION

It has been a remarkable start to the season for Sydney Swans as they made it three straight wins with a shock success over reigning premiers Richmond last week. They surpassed 115 points for the third straight game with their attacking ability shining through in this early part of the campaign in what is a huge turnaround from their efforts in 2020. They will now look to avoid complacency as they host Essendon who produced a brilliant attacking performance of their own last week. They posted 143 points to thrash St. Kilda which ended a six-match losing run but with the Swans looking so consistent in their three matches so far, it would be a surprise if the hosts failed to maintain their 100% start.
