    #AFL Round 22 Demons v Swans Fri 16-Aug at MCG #AFLDeesSwans @sydneyswans

    Melbourne Demons (5W15L 17th) v Sydney Swans (6W14L 15th)
    Friday 16th August 2019 7:50pm AEST
    Melbourne Cricket Ground

    I imagine when this fixture was made last year, that this would have been a blockbuster game with two teams well in finals contention.

    Yeah...someone on Twitter was wondering why this is the Friday night game. I suppose in theory the fixture could be dynamically altered through the season depending on how teams go, but imagine the outcry...

    I'm looking forward to it anyway. Not much more footy for us to enjoy before 7 long months. Hope they give it a good crack.

    Thos are some good signs for mine for the future, especially given the inexperience of so many in our team in the forward half, and their relative lack of body strength (and Buddy not really being involved in much footy either).

    The kick in chain one did suprise me.... maybe its just because the other 77% end up with inside 50s for the opposition - or at least that is what it seems hehe!

    AFL on Twitter: "Final teams #AFLDeesSwans: Lewis Melican replaces Hayden McLean.

    No changes for the Dees."


    Aliir to ruck, concede hitouts, but beat Gawn at ground level. Makes more sense than Plan A.

    No, it's just that due to his long service on RWO, we're now letting Ludwig pick the side. It may actually be a cunning plan.

    Eleni is one of the umpires. Don't recognise the other two but I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

    I think this is going to be the smallest crowd I've been in since the 90s.

    Looks a bit like a NRL crowd at Homebush.

    Is Clarke playing in defense? Jack seems to be playing a bit better.
