Game notes: Last year’s grand finalists meet for the second time this season fresh off the bye, and while it’s sixth versus 16th, this clash should be extremely close at the SCG. A loss for the Swans will end their already slim hopes of making the finals, while a win for the Bulldogs keeps them in touch with the top four, and in a solid position heading into the second half of the year. The Dogs have won their past two games against the Swans in Sydney, and showed in their win over St Kilda, before the week off, that they’re finding some of their best form. Superstar forward Lance Franklin looms as a headache as usual for coach Luke Beveridge, as does Jake Stringer at the other end for John Longmire, and if one of those goalkickers can have a big impact, it might be enough to tip the result their team’s way.
Thommo’s Tip: Doggies by 12 points.
