AFL Round 16 – Sydney Swans vs. Geelong
With a recent six-win streak, the Sydney Swans are perched near the top of the AFL ladder as they head into the second half of the season. In Round 16 they’ll face top-8 side the Geelong Cats on Thursday July 5, 7:20pm at the SCG. The last time these two sides met was Round 6, when a young Sydney outfit piled on seven goals in the final quarter to snatch a 17-point victory and upset the Cats on their home turf. The return clash is shaping as another thrilling encounter.
Anyone arriving early will have plenty of family-friendly pre-game options, including the Sydney Swans Fan Zone presented by McCafe and the Volkswagen Fan Zone, both on Driver Avenue outside the SCG.
