    Rd 20 Vs Lions.. Winner & Margin.....

    Four in a row!! Who would of thought???

    OK. They were the 3 bottom teams and the Aints but we stilll won 4!!

    But now vomes the tougher end of the draw. Where a win or a loss will make all the difference to our 2007 tilt at the mug.

    The lions look like they might be back. Can the Swans continue the recent trend and tame them on their home ground???

    Only time will tell.....

    Swans by 36.
    I support two teams: the SYDNEY SWANS and anyone who beats the West Coast Eagles... except Collingwood, Essendon, Carlton, Richmond, Hawthorn, St. Kilda, North Melbourne, Geelong, Melbourne, Western Bulldogs, Adelaide, Port Adelaide, Brisbane and Fremantle.
    Ok then, I only support one team: The SYDNEY SWANS!!!!!

    There will be a few challenges (namely stopping Brown, I expect we will have at least one player back acting as a speed bump in front of him) but overall I was quite disappointed in what Brisbane offered up against Hawthorn. They are quite reliant on their top tier players (Black, Power, Brown & Lappin) so if we shut them down, it will go a long way towards winning.

    The Lions defence leaked badly on the weekend. The Hawks stretched them at every opportunity.

    I think the Swans have to stay very active in that front half and they will trouble Brisbane. Sydney have a stern mean defence that won't let in as many points as Hawthorn did.

    Yes it will be imporant to stop Brown but stopping the flow of ball in his direction is more important.

    Schneides, ROK Macca and Monty will be important to Sydney to maintain a hive of activity in our F50.

    6 weeks ago, this would have looked like an easy clash, now Sydney have to fight very hard for a win. Sydney go in as luke warm favourites only.

    It's going to be very close. Brisvegas have stepped up a level in the last couple of weeks.
    Hopefully, we'll be in front when the hooter goes off.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Perhaps we should say 'hopefully we'll be in front a minute after the hooter goes off', just incase Barry has to kick any goals after the siren again. Please don't let that happen again!

    What will Baz-you-know-wh-ooka say to that?

    We have strangled their midfield for the past 3 years so hopefully we can put the choker on them again. The clash between Brown and the kamikaze kid will be worth watching.
