Game Notes: After playing the Swans five successive times in Perth, the Eagles finally take on their old rival in Sydney in one of the games of the round. The two clubs swapped players at the end of last season with Callum Sinclair and Lewis Jetta trading cities, so it will be interesting to see which club can get the bragging rights. Ruckmen Nic Naitanui and Kurt Tippett shape as match-winners for their respective sides, and with the Swans midfield in outstanding form, getting first hands on the footy is vital for the home side as it’s the forwards who will reap the rewards. The Eagles will need to keep Lance Franklin and Isaac Heeney quiet but Adam Simpson’s side has plenty of firepower of its own in the form of Coleman medallist Josh Kennedy, Mark LeCras and Jack Darling.

The 6 Points

1. The Eagles dominated the Swans the last time these sides met, with ruckman Nic Naitanui picking up the three Brownlow votes with 41 hit-outs.

2. The Swans are the No.1 contested possession team in 2016 so far, averaging 161.5 per game, while West Coast is middle of the road in this category with 141.8 per game.

3. West Coast’s win over the Swans in round 17 last season ended an eight-game losing sequence and the Eagles haven’t defeated the Swans in consecutive contests since 2007.

4. The Swans are ranked first for inside 50s so far in 2016, averaging 67.3 per game, while they’re third for scoring, averaging 115 points per game.

5. Heavily in the Swans’ favour is their record against West Coast at the SCG. Although the teams haven’t played at the venue since 2010, the Swans have won 12 of the 15 contests there, and the Eagles haven’t grabbed the points there since 1999. 

6. West Coast will rely heavily on Nic Naitanui to win the footy out of the middle, while the Swans’ top gun Josh Kennedy will be vital to their chances of winning the clearances.

  1. G’day guys,
    Like most I’m looking to bring in DBJ and tossing up between getting rid of Papley or the underperforming Lonergan. With a B/E of 63, I’m worried that Papley is only one more quiet game away from getting dropped and may drop down slightly this week. I don’t want him sitting idle on the pine not making money. On the other hand, if he punches out a decent score, he has Brisbane, Essendon and Richmond in his next 3 and may be pushing towards the 300k mark.
    Lonergan is not setting the world on fire and I don’t see him as being a top 10 def. It may be time to simply cut my losses and trade him out, although he shouldn’t leak a lot of cash. Help would be much appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚
    T/U: Trade out Papley
    T/D: Trade out Lonergan

    1. I dont know what to do with papley either.
      Not sure if DBJ is a must have.
      I traded papley in rather than starting with him so i feel i need to be patient and let him earn some more cash.
      If i had lonergan id probably trade him to DBJ.

  2. If I was Adam Simpson I would of made all our players watch last nights game this morning and said ‘this is the level everyone needs to be at’

  4. Papley looks lively, but also giving a masterclass on butchering the footy. Swans desperately need someone at halfback who can kick! Priddis doing what Priddis does.

    1. Shoulda backed parker – averages 5 possessions higher against wc.

      Bet there’s some unhappy Papley traders.
