This is the game for the Swans. If they drop this one to the Blues, it’s officially time to panic. Sitting at 0-5, John Longmire’s men have plenty of work to do. Carlton on the other hand do have a win in season 2017, and will be looking to claim another scalp.

The story is there to be written. Carlton’s young squad manages to defeat the fallen giants of the game, Sydney. However, it unlikely it will play out that way. There comes a time were quality across the ground is too much and despite the promise the Blues have shown, this should be another one of those times.

Buddy back were he does some of his best work, expect him to have a massive game, after being relatively quiet over the past few weeks. The Swans should win this game, they are not an 0-6 side.
