Game notes: The Swans are the form team of the competition after winning four straight, and seven of their past eight games, but they must maintain their run after a 0-6 start to the year. Jarrad McVeigh’s return in last week’s win over Melbourne was important for Sydney, and along with Isaac Heeney, Dane Rampe, Tom Papley and Gary Rohan, who were also missing with injury early in the season, he’ll look to ramp up his influence over the next month. Big forward Tom Lynch looms as a danger for the home side, especially with superstar midfielder Gary Ablett and Jarryd Lyons winning plenty of centre clearances and pumping the ball inside 50. If the Suns are to come to Sydney and beat the Swans for the first time, they’ll need another monster game from Ablett, and a bag of goals from Lynch.
Thommo’s Tip: Sydney by 40 points.
