    Early premiership favourites Hawthorn find themselves outside the top eight after four rounds, while the less-fancied Sydney Swans are undefeated. Join us at 1.10pm AEST for live scores and commentary from Aurora Stadium.

    The Hawks have kicked off their season with a fairly tough draw but are strengthened today with the return of Luke Hodge, Luke Breust, Grant Birchall and Paul Puopolo. The latter two will provide some much needed run out of defence.

    For the Swans, it’s their best start to a season since 1998 and they will be keen to continue their present momentum.

    Adam Goodes returns for the Swans after a one-week suspension, and he’ll be a valuable forward of centre route to goal.

    The Swans’ number one ruckman, Shane Mumford, is still out of the team and Mark Seaby will be asked to carry the ruck load for a second consecutive week.

    The Swans’ midfield has been excellent so far this season and some tough battles loom today with Josh Kennedy up against Brad Sewell while Jude Bolton will be trying to keep Sam Mitchell in check.

    Hawthorn’s forward line looks intimidating, with proven talls Buddy Franklin and Jarryd Roughead backed by good ground level players in Cyril Rioli and Shaun Burgoyne.

    Ted Richards is likely to stand Buddy, and the outcome of the game might well rest on that match-up. Richards has had a good season, but Buddy has a good record at Aurora Stadium.

    Adam Goodes breaks the record today for the most games played for the Swans, and no doubt that will be an additional spur for the away team.

    This is a tough game to tip with the in-form Swans playing a ground much larger than the SCG, and I can’t help thinking that they’ll have their work cut out keeping the Hawthorn forwards in check.

    The Hawks will get their season back on track with a winning margin of less than 10 points.

    Will the Swans remain unbeaten, or will the step-up in the class of the opposition hand them their first loss of 2012? Find out from 1.10pm AEST as we cover action from Launceston with live scores and a blog and if you’re watching or following along, give us your thoughts in the space below.

      What a win by Sydney!!!! Swans are fair dinkum this season. Storm dominating in the NRL and the Swans dominating in the AFL. Fancy that!

        Good call, both with the early running, Storm probably slightly ahead because of the extra games they have under their belt.

      Well that’s it for me, what a great come back by the Swans, who ended up thrashing Hawthorn.
      Thanks for joining me, enjoy the rest of your evening.

        Many thanks to you for a very good call.

        I’ll make a huge statement here….The Hawks cannot win the Grand Final without Josh Gibson in their team. I’ll go even further, they wont even make the GF without him. I’ve never seen such a huge turnaround with the loss of one player.

        I don’t wish to belittle Sydney’s win, as they played very well in the second half, but they couldn’t do it when Gibson was there. The Hawks have some large problems.

          Thanks Grant.

          They certainly aren’t looking like premiership favourites, the way they let the Swans back into the game, and then completely collapsed in the last 15 minutes of the game would have their coaching staff worried.

          Looks like Goodes came good for you in the end! (and me)

          It wasn’t the loss of Gibson..it was the mid-field and Sydney’s half forwards.

          Kennedy, Bolton, Goodes, O’Keefe, Hanneberry, Parker, McVeigh…these guys took it up to the Hawks and they had no answer.

        The Swans have just announced themselves as fair dinkum contenders. At the start of the game, right up to about the 20 min mark of the 2nd quarter, Hawthorn controlled the game, won the clearances, had the spread, uncontested possessions were through the roof as Hawthorn found each other with ease, kept the footy, and had the big targets up forward with Hale and Roughead, the latter having 5 goals by half time.

        In the third quarter, the Swans turned it all around, kept the Hawks scoreless, it was a case of winning the contests around the ground, moving the ball quickly, getting their contested possessions up, getting more handball in to keep the ball, set up the kick into fwd 50, and they found targets in Goodes, Seaby and Kennedy, the latter ended up probably being best on ground just ahead of Goodes – both started slowly, but by the end of the game, they had the ball on a string.

        Hawthorn came back into it early in the 4th quarter, and it’s probably hard to believe that they took the lead for about one minute, but the Swans tightened up the hatches, flourished in the stoppages, and scored six unanswered goals asn the Hawks fell off the pace..

      Clarkson looking for solutions, none forthcoming, could be that prime movers suchy has Hodge have run out of steam
      Schoemakers only just gets the ball away after a Goodes tackle, two Hawks players run into each other in the mddle, Smith runs through, puts it long to Goodes, and he takes it between two Hawthorn defenders! only 20m out, this could just about be the sealer, and he gets it!

      It’s just hard to see how Hawthorn can get back into this game, at the moment they don’t look like getting a goal, but they need to find at least 3
      handball receives favouring Swans bigtime, and that’s the key to their lead
