The Bombers (8-10, 32 points) missed a golden opportunity to put themselves at the forefront of the race for the 8th spot, but instead found themselves back amongst the likes of GWS, Richmond, Fremantle and St Kilda following their loss against GWS. 

They were outscored by 29 points in the second-half. The return of Shiel was promosing, as he notched 13 disposals with less then 70% game time, and with Langford and Caldwell both pushing to make a return, their midfield looks to be set without McGrath

The Swans (12-6, 48 points) have been on a rampage this season, starting off the season on fire with a 4-0 record, and now they are in the midst of another 4-0 record in their last month of footy, regaining some form in a crucial part of the season. 

Isaac Heeney went off for a 22 disposal, 5 mark game over the weekend, whilst Kennedy (34 disposals) and Parker (30 disposals) did their job in the middle. Franklin also added another 2 goals to his tally, making himself just 17 shy of the 1000 mark.

The Swans beat the Bombers 83-80 in Round 4. 

Verdict

The Swans are flying at the moment and should win this match, but I don’t see the Bombers going down without a fight, with their season on the line and they are also regaining some key players, making the line a juicy proposition.
