GAME NOTES: Carlton did something Sydney haven’t been able to do this season when they upset Hawthorn, but they face a much tougher task in Saturday’s last game of the year at the SCG. The Swans were outstanding in Friday night’s thrilling win over Adelaide on the road, and continued their impressive form, taking the points for the 13th time in their past 15 matches. All of Sydney’s big guns were important against the Crows, and if Lance Franklin, Josh Kennedy and Dane Rampe continue to fire, the Blues will struggle. The experienced heads of Marc Murphy, Bryce Gibbs, Sam Docherty, Kade Simpson and Matthew Kreuzer must start well to give the visitors some belief early, with Liam Jones to get another big job on Franklin, who found his mojo last week.
Hutta’s Tip: Sydney by 30 points.
