AFL: Sydney Swans v Hawthorn Hawks

These two high profile teams have history, with the most notable clash, the 2014 AFL grand final.

On that day the boys from Hawthorn thumped Sydney by 63 points and the red and white army will never forget the pain of that defeat.

The defection of the Hawks favourite son Lance 'Buddy' Franklin to the Swans who then played against his old club in the match added to the angst between the two sides and there still remains a deep resentment.

2019 brings no change and the likes of Franklin, Jack, McVeigh are all still leading their young guns around the Sydney Cricket Ground with hopes of dishing out a home ground hammering of the Hawks.

Jarryd Roughead, Shaun Burgoyne and Ben Stratton have a similar job with their young guns in Conor Glass, Daniel Howe and James Worpel who will be aware of the enormity of these matches.

Friday night will be buzzing in the SCG precinct and a massive crowd is expected. Leave the car at home and jump on public transport, with buses available from Central Railway Station straight to the ground.
