Sydney Swans : vs Collingwood | Tickets | Next game
Sydney play their home deck very well and will be hoping to move back into the top four with a win that could see them sit as high as second on the ladder come the end of the round.
The match looms as something special, with two teams prepared to take on risk for the potential rewards.
That has many predicting a high-scoring affair, with the excellent conditions also adding weight to that line of thinking.
Both teams could squeeze into the top four at the completion of the home and away season, yet a loss today would make that more difficult than either would like. It all reeks of something of a desperate affair, with a home final up for grabs for the victor.
Team news sees a rarity, with both sides entering the contest without changes. That only adds further interest to the match, with no excuses available to the vanquished and the winner certain to move forward into the final week of the home and away season with a level of confidence that will make them difficult to topple across the month that follows.

That day will never come. The Hunter Valley product calls the Sydney Cricket Ground home, starring with a Sherrin instead of a Steeden at the stadium next door. Metres apart, but worlds apart.
It has been nearly 15 years since Sydney spotted the blond bombshell at a national carnival and invited him to join the Swans’ Academy.
They’ve gradually transformed the aspiring NRL full-back, who was much more interested in the Roosters than the Swans, into the poster boy of AFL in Sydney.
There was uproar when the Swans were able to gain access to Heeney for just pick No.18 in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft, forcing the system to be changed the following year before Callum Mills was picked by Sydney at No.3. If we didn’t already know it at the time, now we know why recruiters thought the system was unfair.
Eight years on, Heeney will play game 150 against Collingwood at the SCG today, in a game some inside club believe is the biggest home and away fixture in two decades.
