Full of confidence after a come-from-behind win over Geelong, the Swans showed no Lance Franklin forces their talented forward line to find the ball themselves.
North Melbourne suffered a loss to Port Adelaide last Saturday afternoon and will attempt to get back on the winner’s list in round seven.
It was a reasonable game from the Roos, Ben Brown kicking four goals, but Port steadily kicked away to a 30 point victory throughout the afternoon.
Dean Towers is back for Sydney this week, replacing Dan Robinson (omitted). The versatile tall man will be support for Callum Sinclair in the ruck.
North Melbourne has made three changes going in to this Saturday night clash with Sydney, Sam Wright, Shaun Higgins and Mason Wood have been added to the team of 22.
Majak Daw is out with a foot injury, Jarrad Waite has been rested and Luke Davies-Uniacke was omitted from the Roos’ line up.
The good news story for this week is the return of Sam Wright, 701 days since his last AFL game.
The defender suffered several injury setbacks on the road to recovery, first hurting his right ankle in early 2016.
It is also a big game for Gary Rohan, as he will reach the 100 game milestone in his ninth season of AFL.
North Melbourne have shown promise to start this year, but the Swans are firing. Sydney’s two losses for the year have been at home and they will be out to rectify this poor start at home, taking a big win over the Kangaroos.
Sydney Swans by 31 points.
