Sydney Swans

Sydney SwansOriginally founded as South Melbourne in 1874, the club relocated in 1982 to become the Sydney Swans – the first non-Victorian team to take part in the VFL. The team endured a 72-year premiership drought that ended in 2005, and won the flag again in 2012.

Sydney made history in 2017, recovering from an 0-6 start to qualify for the finals – becoming the first ever team in the competition to do so. The Swans entered September as one of the premiership favourites – despite finishing in sixth – although they were eliminated in the semi finals after a miserable performance against Geelong.

After their stunning revival last season proved their premiership window wasn’t closed, punters and analysts alike have jumped right back on the Swans. They’re tipped as one of the teams to beat in 2018.
