Home and Away Season Summary
Sydney’s season has been rather consistent, as they’ve been drifting between 3rd and 5th all season. Season highlights include a four-point win over Hawthorn, and haven’t lost to any team lower than Geelong this year. That won’t help them in finals, though.
Players to Watch
The Brownlow chance has missed two games since 2011, a testament to his remarkable consistency. Has gotten 30+ disposals in each of his past ten games. One of the absolute best players in the AFL. If he’s firing, then Sydney will be, too.
The legend, Goodesey is playing his 371st game tomorrow, and he’s a real contender to join Bartlett, Tuck, Fletcher and Harvey in the 400 Club. Goodes has been scoring frequently for the Swans, and they’ll need him to kick a few.
Sydney’s season has been a lot better than we’ve perceived it, but I think that they’re tired after a long season. I’ve got them going out in straight sets. Semi finals.
