Game Chat – Sydney vs Brisbane

Written by Huttabito on May 7 2017

Venue: SCG at 1:10pm AEST

Last Time They Met:

R6, 2016, Sydney 15.7 (97) d Brisbane Lions 14.10 (94) at the Gabba
R15, 2015, Sydney 10.10 (70) d Brisbane Lions 7.7 (49) at the Gabba
R7, 2014, Sydney 18.15 (123) d Brisbane Lions 6.8 (44) at the Gabba
R6, 2013, Sydney 17.13 (115) d Brisbane Lions 8.7 (55) at the SCG
R15, 2012, Sydney 16.14 (110) d Brisbane Lions 9.9 (63) at the SCG

Game Notes: The Swans are struggling for form and battling injuries to key players, but get their best chance to break through for a win in 2017 against the Brisbane Lions at the SCG. The Lions have lost their last nine games against the Swans and haven’t travelled to Sydney since 2013, when they were belted by 10 goals. At 0-6 the Swans are just about ruled out of finals contention, and with coach John Longmire labelling last week’s loss to Carlton as “unacceptable”, you’d think the home side would lift for Sunday’s game. Lance Franklin was unable to break the shackles of Alex Silvagni last week, and the superstar forward must start hitting the scoreboard if his team is to fix their scoring woes, while midfielders Josh Kennedy, Dan Hannebery and Luke Parker have to find a way to reassert their presence on the team.

Huttabito’s Tip: Sydney by 20 points

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.

  1. Alir Alir late out for missing a training session Yesterday

    Marsh in

    Does this smell the end of Newman, although he got 30 touches & 1 goal in NEAFL yesterday…’s a huge drop down though!


      1. Not sure backing it up the next day at AFL level would of faired too well Father, Marsh didn’t play yesterday so I’m guessing the decision had been made


      2. Of course Father, not what I actually meant!

        But McVeigh back this week, Alir Alir picked to play & Marsh the preferred one to come in after Alir being replaced….puts Newman down the pecking order!


        1. Ah yes, sorry. Isn’t Marsh a tall and Newman a small, so replacing Alir with another tall is more of like for like rather than a pecking order thing?


          1. Yeah, McVeigh is the one who replaced Newman. Unless Macca gets injured again (or Jones), Newman will struggle to get back in the team now. Might be time to flick him.


  2. YAY ..Heeney playing midfield.

    I nearly traded him in this week.

    Heeney 130+ this week.

    Top 5 most traded in next week.

    You heard it here first!

    Happy Birthday Isaac.


    1. I had Beams into Heeney; hopefully and him and buddy can consistently push for the rest of the game


  3. Traded Heeney in to avoid a donut with Nank out after trading Parfitt out and having limited funds.


    1. Well, he’s beating up on the Lions. That’s sort of like being back. 😉

      He’s gonna be up and down all season, just like every other season. But doing well vs Brisbane is good, at least in the sense you would hate to see him doing badly vs the Lions


  4. Heeney AND Yeo were both in my team about seven times each this week.

    At least Buddy is doing stuff; would’ve been better last week when he had the VC on him. A true coach is never happy.

  9. Its not often that you say you have consistently dud premos. But i have 2 of them. JPK and Treloar are an absolute liability.


  10. Been a big fan of jpk and I thought being captain would suit him, but it doesn’t seem to be happening need to look at him and treloar after their byes and I have sorted out more pressing issues


    1. For me it’s been Treloar and Parker…

      Luckily I’ve got other issues to sort out before then like Stewart, Hibberd, Fox, Pickett and culling a few other rookies!
