Preview

The Swans are 0-2 and after an improved showing last week in the grand final rematch, they’ll be looking to register their first points of the season against a Collingwood side who’ve been competitive, but at the same time, haven’t looked like winning in the opening two rounds.

Kurt Tippett will miss due to an ankle injury with either Callum Sinclair and Darcy Cameron in line to be his replacement as Collingwood lack of key talls could be put to the test as Lance Franklin – playing his 250th game – and Sam Reid come into the game in ominous form.

The Pies could ring in a host of changes with Jamie Elliot a chance to make his debut for the season while Travis Varcoe will return from suspension. Mason Cox, Lynden Dunn and Matthew Scharenberg are all chances to be included in the squad.

It could be an old school backyard battle between the Reid brothers should they line up on each other during the match – one that’ll have viewers glued to their TVs given the form of the pair.

Sydney were impressive in parts last week and will be looking to string together four quarters and should take home the four points.

Swans by 18.
