Game notes: Melbourne will be searching for its fifth win in a row against fellow form side of the competition, Sydney. The Demons are riding high after their heart-stopping three-point win against West Coast in Perth last weekend. The Swans had a similar nail-biting result, with Gary Rohan kicking a goal after the siren to pinch a one-point victory from Essendon. Without Nathan Jones, due to a quad injury, Jack Viney – should he be passed fit – will need to have another blinder, particularly with Josh Kennedy, Dan Hannebery and Luke Parker in excellent form. Max Gawn’s influence will again be crucial if the Demons are to triumph, with the big man to play his second game off a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury. With six wins and seven losses, the Swans must keep the momentum rolling if they are to feature in September.
Thommo’s Tip: Sydney by 6 points.
