Sydney

  • Out: Richards (blow-out fracture)

Game Notes: Sydney are back to their dominant form of 2014 and look a sure thing to make a mess of Brisbane today. The Lions haven’t defeated the Swans in years and seem destined to spend another season in the cellar. Just keep your fingers crossed that we get a good contest – stranger upsets have already happened this season.

And if it is a one-sided affair as predicted, at least we have our Supercoach stars to watch!

For Brisbane, we are all waiting for Tom Rockliff and Stefan Martin to rediscover their beast modes whereas Zorko is yet to let his owners down. And Sydney? Pick a midfielder, any midfielder- they’re all good. Parker is the most popular, closely followed by Hannebery, Tom Mitchell loves to bully weaker sides and Kennedy has a fondness for tormenting Lions.

Finally, watch for the debuts of ball magnet, Ben Keays, for Brisbane and tall defender, Aliir Aliir for Sydney.

The 6 Points

1. The Swans may have won the most recent contest but it was close after leading by just seven points at three quarter-time. Josh Kennedy collected the three Brownlow votes with 41 disposals and nine tackles.

2. The Swans are the number one contested possession team in 2016, averaging 162.6 a game, while the Lions are ranked last with 128.8 a game.

3. The Swans have dominated this contest over a long period, winning the past eight matches, including four wins by more than 50 points. The Lions’ last win was in round 22, 2009 at the SCG.

4. With an average of 66.4 a game, the Swans are the top-ranked inside 50 team in 2016. The Lions are ranked 16th with 45.6 a game.

5. No team kicks the ball less than the Brisbane Lions, with 176.4 a game. They’re also ranked 17th for handballs with 152.8 a game.

6. Luke Parker’s 25 touches and nine tackles against the Eagles moved him to an equal career-high 24th overall in the AFL Official Player Ratings. He is one of five Swans in the top 50.

Thommo’s Tip: Sydney by lots.

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

  3. All those with big Stef Martin.
    Don’t worry.
    Players after big head knocks often play bad for a few weeks.
    Expect him to bounce back.
    He is a champ.

  6. Luke Parker doesn’t quite get me as excited as the young lady in the TV ad, but with the captaincy and 302 points he goes pretty bloody close.

Game Chat – Brisbane v Sydney

Written by Thommo on July 12 2015

Despite playing at home, it’s difficult seeing Brisbane pushing Sydney in this game. The Lions have been competitive lately and welcome back Rockliff, Hanley and Merrett but Sydney regain 20% of their salary cap from suspension in Tippett and Buddy and should be too strong.

Pearce Hanley finally plays his 100th game for the Lions.

Thommo’s tip: Sydney by 36 points.

  4. Zorko is about the only bloke that can have as few possessions as Cyril and create as much excitement.

    Christiansen is the next Duckwood. Duckchrist? Ducksen?

  6. Sydney massively outplayed in the first half of the third.

    Sydney outplayed Brisbane in the second half but a LOT of frees given to Brisbane to keep em in it.

    Current free count now 18-10 in Brissy’s favour. A lot of them for pushes, but from what I’ve seen very even on that front by both teams.

    Gabba needs goal line cameras for score reviews too. Surprised that as one of the big name test grounds they don’t have them.

    Buddy finally coming into the match.
