The Sydney Swans touched down at Henson Park in Marrickville for the opening training session of the week on Monday.
With the club's intra-club match scheduled for February 22, and Sydney's two JLT Community Series fixtures set for March 2 and March 10, games are just around the corner.
The Swans have been ramping up their preparation for the season ahead since returning to the pre-season grind in November, and Henson Park played host to another heavy hit-out on Monday.
