Game Review

Carlton would fall further behind the ladder leading Eagles with this loss to bottom team Sydney. Whether it was the signs of things to come, or just the commencement of a horrible trend of Sydney wins over us - even at the top of our game - the Swans would win this dour match in front of 5 people and a pet dog up in Sydney.

No-name Swans such as Scott Direen and Gavin Rose would dominate, while as hard as Barry Mitchell would try against his old team, the Blues put in a shocker.
