    Match Preview: Sydney Swans v Fremantle, Round 19

    A look at Sydney's upcoming Round 19 fixture against Fremantle at Metricon Stadium on Sunday July 25.

    <!-- -->

    The Sydney Swans face Fremantle this Sunday afternoon at Metricon Stadium in their Round 19 fixture.

    The fixture was originally scheduled to be played at Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium but has been relocated due to the team’s move from Melbourne to Queensland out of caution to the unfolding COVID-19 situation in Victoria.

    Sam Reid returns to the side for the first time since Round 6 after a calf injury saw him sidelined for the past few months, whilst Ben Ronke makes his first appearance for the year after being the med-sub last week.

    Reid and Ronke return with Joel Amartey and Dylan Stephens omitted.

    Fremantle have made four changes to their side that suffered a 69-point defeat to Geelong last week.

    Key forward Matt Taberner, defender Hayden Young and ruck Lloyd Meek have come into the starting 22, as has defender Brandon Walker, who played against Geelong as a medical sub.

    They replace the injured Rory Lobb (ankle) and Sam Switkowski (hamstring) as well as omissions Blake Acres and Ethan Hughes.

    WHERE TO WATCH

    The match will be broadcast live by the Seven Network into New South Wales and the ACT and nationally on Foxtel and Kayo.

    STATS

    Sydney enters this clash off the back of three consecutive wins in the past month over West Coast, the Western Bulldogs and GWS. The side sits sixth on the ladder with 11 wins this season.

    Fremantle will be looking to rebound from last week’s loss in hopes to improve on their 10th place on the ladder. They have eight wins this season with three in the last five weeks.

    Fremantle hold the recent head to head advantage, with three wins in the last five games including a two point thriller at Optus Stadium earlier this season.

    Sydney were last victorious over Fremantle in 2018.

    Hear from John Longmire as he speaks of some big inclusions for our clash against Fremantle on Sunday.

    KEY QUOTES

    John Longmire

    “It's good to have Sam back. He has proved to be a handy player for us over a long time and he was playing some really good footy for us at the start of the year," Longmire said.

    “He has been back for a few weeks now and got some games under his belt so it’s good to get him back in the team.”

    "Ben Ronke is a player who has had some terrible runs with injury. Last year in particular, he wasn’t able to get out there very much at all and this year, he has had a few hiccups but he has been back playing for a couple of weeks now and he gives us great pressure, run, speed and hardness so he will play an important role for us." he added.

    “The victories have been good, and the other game (against Port Adelaide) we were beaten in the last five minutes as well, so we have been pretty pleased with how it has been going, but we didn’t get off to a good start last week," Longmire said.

    “We need to get off to a better start this week because we know that Fremantle will come across throwing everything at this game, as will we.

    "We are looking to have a really consistent four quarter effort. It’s pretty basic but that’s what we are after. We are trying to continue to build on that real pressure footy that we like to play."

    Heeney masterclass leads Swans to victory

    Sydney has defeated Fremantle at Metricon Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

    <!-- -->

    The Sydney Swans have strung their fourth win in a row, securing a 40-point victory over Fremantle at Metricon Stadium this afternoon.

    Swans forward Isaac Heeney was dominant with 5 goals, including one which came after a spectacular mark over Luke Ryan.

    Swans forward Lance Franklin was penalised after connecting with his left elbow to the head of Fremantle's Luke Ryan in the second quarter of the 14.14 (98) to 8.10 (58) win in Round 19.

    Franklin ended the game with two goals, moving to 983 for his career as he closes in on the 1000-goal milestone.

    Heeney's spectacular grab and goal sparked a three-goal run by the Swans to take a three-point lead into the half.

    The Swans would go on to kick eight unanswered goals across the second and third quarters to establish a match-winning lead.

    Heeney ended the game with five goals and 22 disposals in an all-action display while Luke Parker had two majors for the Swans.

    Josh Kennedy was also sensational for the Swans with 34 disposals, seven tackles and seven clearances.

    Fremantle's day of celebration, as veteran David Mundy made his 350th appearance, quickly turned into a horror show.

    After a strong start where Justin Longmuir's team failed to really capitalise on their dominance, the Dockers finished the match without captain Nat Fyfe (shoulder) and small forward Michael Walters (hamstring).

    Fyfe's right shoulder appeared to dislocate as he fought for the ball just before half-time while Walters limped off early in the third term clutching his right leg.

    Heeney goes flyin’ over Ryan
    The Swans were still searching for their spark halfway into the second term when the Dockers’ half-back Hayden Young went to switch the play with a long kick to Luke Ryan who was standing 30m out in front of the opposition goal. Except Isaac Heeney had given Ryan just enough space to encourage the pass from Young then easily made up the ground while the ball hung in the air. Heeney arrived in good time to fly over Ryan and claim a spectacular mark with his left shin sitting on the defender’s shoulders. Heeney’s hang time then goal seemed to inspire the Swans who then kicked two more to claim the lead before half-time then followed up with five goals to none after the main break.
