The Swans will hope their recent good recent against the Blues continues when the pair square off at the SCG on Saturday afternoon. After a slow start to the season, the Swans have split their past 10 games to sit at 6-9. They are two games outside the eight, so a win this weekend is crucial. They are coming off a 10-point loss to the Bombers in round 16 after leading by three points at three-quarter time. Essendon strung together four goals on the trot in the fourth quarter to break the game open in an otherwise even game.
Carlton has been much improved in recent times and last round was no different, with their match against the Demons going down to the wire. Carlton use a final quarter surge of five goals in a row to take the lead late, with Jayden Hunt’s late final term major stamping Melbourne’s five point win. These sides met at Marvel Stadium in round 3 this season where the Swans won by 19 points. Isaac Heeney scored four goals for the Swans, while Ed Curnow was an unlikely goal scorer for the Blues with four majors himself.
The Blues’ record at the SCG is anything but flash in recent times, losing six of their past seven at the venue. Despite being one of the poorest teams in the competition in 2019, they are one of the best performing against the handicap at 11-4. The Swans are also better than average at 9-6, with nearly twice as many of their games falling under the total points than over this season. The Wolf would expect the Swans to be too good at home, but the Blues are being given a big points start and did win their last game on the road against the Dockers, so they won’t be shy in putting up a fight.
