Gallery: AFLX prep peps up

The inaugural AFLX competition is just days away.

Awaiting the Sydney Swans at Allianz Stadium on Saturday will be the Gold Coast and Western Bulldogs over two round-robin games of action-packed and fast-paced footy.

With that in mind, the Swans ramped up their preparation during Monday's session at Lakeside Oval with a series of game simulations under the watchful eyes and guidance of the coaches.

Check out some photos from the session below.
