BUDDY HAILS GUTSY WIN 

Lance Franklin has hailed a “gutsy” win by his undermanned teammates.

Already missing senior players Dan Hannebery and Jarrad McVeigh, the Swans lost Josh Kennedy to a back injury during the game.

Franklin told 3AW the young Swans stepped up.

“It was a gutsy, gutsy win,” he said.

FULL TIME

Sydney has won an absolute thriller by six points.

The Swans stole the lead in the dying moments through Aliir Aliir, the defender kicking his first AFL goal in his 21st game.

The final quarter swung all over the place with both sides trading goals, but it was the Swans who led at the right time.

There were a number of heroic individual performances on the day.

Swan forward Ben Ronke booted five goals, as did Jack Ziebell at the other end.

Majak Daw and Ben Brown kicked four, while Buddy Franklin kicked three, including his 900th career goal.

AN ELITE CLUB

Lance Franklin has joined an elite club.

When Buddy booted his first of the game in the third term, he became the ninth player in history to kick 900 goals.

=====

LATE CHANGES

Both sides have made a change to their selected sides.

Ben Jacobs has been replaced by Luke Davies-Uniacke for North, while Swan defender Heath Grundy has been replaced by Harry Marsh.

It’s the second time in three weeks that Jacobs has been withdrawn before a game with concussion symptoms, but North coach Brad Scott denies there’s a major problem.

“I can understand how it sounds,” Scott told 3AW before the game.

“I can assure everyone that he’s very close to playing and we’re certainly not playing games naming him.”

THE BUILD-UP

There are four points, and there are four points.

These four points are not like the others.

For North, they will lift the side into the eight. For the Swans, the Top 4.

And equally, not getting the points will have implications for both clubs and those around them.

Strap yourselves in for what should be a hard-fought epic on 3AW Football!
