Collingwood v Sydney Swans Preview
May 23, 2013
The MCG is a fitting venue for the match of AFL Round 9 when Collingwood v Sydney takes Center Stage this Friday.
Talk of poor form and lack of defensive intensity went out of the window last week when Collingwood became the first team to defeat Geelong. The Pies were quickest to start and took an early lead which was then overhauled and at the final change it looked like being the Cats’ game when they led by 13. But Collingwood ground it out and finished the game on top, which could do wonders for their confidence.
At Sydney Swans though, the talk of poor form remains after the reigning premiers let a decent lead slip at Freemantle and allowed the Dockers in to snatch a draw. Sydney were smashed a week before by Hawthorn and have yet to beat a team ranked higher than 12th this term, but will no longer fear their opponents having ended their 11 game hoodo on the way to last year’s grand final.
