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
