Head to Head


Gold Coast have won the last two clashes by considerable margins including a 100-60 win in Round 6 this season. Overall the Swans lead the head to head 10-3.

Sydney Swans Form 


The Swans are one of the in-form sides that are peaking heading into this finals series, winning six of their last seven matches and having beaten the top sides throughout the home and away season.

They can be a little patchy but have really hit their peak in the back quarter of the season and can be the smokey heading into the finals.

Last week's 91-77 win over North Melbourne means the Swans are guaranteed to finish in fifth or sixth spot on the ladder.

Sydney Swans Team News 


Josh Kennedy hurt his hamstring late in last week's game and is out. He should be fit for the first week of finals.

Nick Blakey is also out with injury and Sam Reid and Robbie Fox are omitted.

Callum Mills has been passed fit to return and Jake Lloyd and Buddy Franklin also return for the final game of the home and away season.

It was already confirmed that the Suns won't be playing finals footy for the first time prior to last week's 98-30 defeat to the Essendon Bombers.
