Hawthorn Hawks v Sydney Swans

Round nine begins with a cracking contest at the ‘G between these 2014 Grand Final rivals. The Hawks survived an early scare against Fremantle in round eight to do what they do best – grind out a win. But there were bad signs in the first half against the winless Dockers, who led at the long break. Meanwhile, there was heartbreak for Sydney, who sustained their second loss of the season last week when Richmond’s Sam Lloyd booted the winning snagger after the siren. We are backing the Swans to rebound from that loss and beat Hawthorn, which is paying $2.55 with Luxbet, and Lance Franklin to boot the first major against his old side ($7 with Sportsbet).
