Show Preview

Classic rivals in middling form, the Sydney Swans and Hawthorn Hawks, clash at the SCG. Join The Roar for live scores from 3:35pm (AEST).

Gone are the days where clashes between the Swans and Hawks tended to be battles of high-flying sides. This year, both sit within the bottom six. The duo are also coming off a string of losses.

The Swans have failed to win a game since Round 3. Sydney’s previous three weeks have been particularly bad: a loss to Richmond, defeat at the hands of the Gold Coast and a pummeling by traditional rivals West Coast. John Longmire’s men have been dealing with an injury crisis, but their standard of play has been desperately poor.

The Hawks – so long competition heavyweights – are also enduring their worst period under Alistar Clarkson, with a trio of horrendous losses in the last three rounds. That includes last week’s defeat against Melbourne, a game noted as perhaps the worst the club has played in a long while. Failures against Collingwood and the Giants also dented what had been looking like a decent enough season.

Fortunately, Hawthorn do have a positive record at the Sydney Cricket Ground, winning at the venue 16 times in their history. The Swans, on the other hand, have a poor 2020 record at home. They’re yet to win on the ground this season.

John Longmire has swung the axe after last week’s loss, with five players losing their spots. Among the outs are Will Hayward and George Hewitt, both of whom are injured. Sam Reid and debutant Matthew Ling are among the five joining the team.

Hawthorn have made two forced changes. Tim O’Brien (ankle) and Ricky Henderson (knee) are replaced by debutant Keegan Brooksby and former Sun Jack Scrimshaw.
