Preview

It’s Friday night footy, and AFL fans will be treated to a grand final rematch. Both teams had very different results in round one, the Bulldogs claimed a win over the Pies, meanwhile the Swans copped a heavy defeat at the hands of the Power.

Sydney haven’t beaten the Bulldogs since 2014, it also happens to be the last time they played them at Etihad Stadium. With the return of Stewart Crameri, and the introduction of Travis Cloke, the Dogs are still working out the kinks in their forward line. Each week expect them to improve as a unit.

One of the main stars that will be looking to bounce back for the Swans is Dan Hannebery. He was kept quiet in round one, and will desperately want to put in a good performance¬†for his side. The big question is whether the Dogs’ back line will be able to handle the star power of the Swans’ front half. They did so, to the surprise of some, in the grand final last year, but with some changes will they be able to do it again?

Tip: Swans by 21
