Kangaroos 11.12.78 vs Swans 18.12.120

The Swans were strong today and have found form against a side who last week put 10 goals in the first quarter against the Premiership favourites, more importantly they did it without Lance Franklin kicking a bag. Josh Kennedy (37 disposals) was fantastic early, white Nic Newman who was the late inclusion was also fantastic with 35 touches.

In the end the Kangaroos were brave but they couldn’t match it with the Swans, it’s Sydney 18.12.120 defeating North Melbourne 11.12.78. That’s all from me, I hope you have a good Sunday arvo.

Kangaroos 11.9.75 vs Swans 17.10.112

Franklin nearly a mark but it’s punched away well by Thompson. But now Mellican can spot up Franklin well but again Buddy’s achilles heel has been his inability to take an overhead mark and now the Roos are away.

Franklin still yet to kick a goal today, Tarrant doing his job well the last two week, and just as I type that a bit of magic from Franklin who taps it to himself and then kicks a volley out of mid air!
