Sydney Swans vs Essendon Bombers Preview
We are set for an exciting start to round 4 on Thursday night with both these teams playing a free flowing and fast paced brand of football so far this season.
The Bombers were the surprise packet of Round 3 when they came out and belted the St Kilda Football Club on Saturday afternoon to the tune of 75 points.
They managed just three more inside 50s than their opponents but they went at 59% once in there and they kicked extremely accurately (22.11).
John Longmire has his Sydney Swans firing on all cylinders to start the season and they not only defeated the defending premier at the weekend, they gave them a hiding.
The changing state of the game seems to be perfect for their run and play on at all costs type of play and for now, it is working.
The Bombers and Swans make up four of the top six highest scores so far through three rounds this season and I can see this one being another shoot out.
