Game notes: So who predicted this match to be between 6th place and 16th place on the ladder in the preseason?
With injuries to key personnel and gun midfielders struggling to find form, the Swans have suffered a spluttering start to season 2017 and couldn’t have timed this trip to the House of Pain any worse. They are staring down the barrel of an 0 and 4 start to the season, unheard of for last year’s runners up.
However despite the slow start, Sydney is a team more than capable of recovering from a slow start so the Eagles will be wary of the wounded beast. After wasting opportunities against the Tigers in the wet last week, they will look to jump the ailing Swans early and bring the crowd into the match.
While it will surprise nobody if the Swans get up, it’s hard to predict anything but a comfortable Eagles victory tonight.
Thommo’s Tip: West Coast by 4 goals.
