The two form sides of the competition square off in what could be a Grand Final preview. After a mid-season malaise, the Crows have rebounded strongly, winning six of their past seven games – and drawn the other with a kick after the siren – to move six points clear at the top of the table. While they have locked in a top-two berth, the Crows would love nothing more to knock off the Swans and gain a small slice of retribution for last year’s semi-final loss. Six straight losses to start the season left the Swans languishing at the foot of the ladder, but last year’s Grand Finalists have dramatically turned things around with 12 wins from their past 14 games to keep their top-four hopes alive. You couldn’t ask for a better start to the penultimate round of the competition.
