Head to Head

Sydney hold a 3-2 lead in recent head to head clashes over Essendon, including their last two which only one was played at home.

Their last clash was at the MCG in August of last year, which saw Sydney come away with a seven-point win.

Sydney Swans Form

The Swans are in a little bit of a slump having dropped their last two matches against Brisbane Lions and Gold Coast Suns.

Off the back of an expected loss to Brisbane two rounds ago, Sydney played as if they were expecting a walk-up win last week against the Suns and lost 75-61.

Sydney Swans Team News

James Bell, Sam Wicks and the big ruckman Tom Hickey have all been named to play. 

Hickey is the big name back in the side, giving them an A-grade ruckman.

Ben Ronke (Omitted), Braeden Campbell (Managed), Hayden McLean (Omitted) and Ryan Clarke (Medi-Sub) will all miss.
