PREVIEW: Round 19 vs Swans

Subiaco face Swan Districts in their last regular season home game at Medibank on Saturday.

The Lions are two games clear on top of the ladder but are still a long way from securing a bye in the first week of finals.

With South Fremantle and West Perth hovering below, Subi will have to deliver a strong performance against the last-placed Swans on the weekend.
 
The reigning premiers stabilized their premiership defence with a strong win against South Fremantle last Thursday Night. The Lions were looking shaky after a loss to Perth in Round 16 but the side has seemingly rectified their issues. 

Swan Districts are on a three game losing streak, which includes the Lions win over them in Round 15. The Midland based team is 2-13 on the season with their only wins coming against Claremont and Peel Thunder.

Subiaco are steadily getting back key players but will miss another one this week. Midfielder Adam Cockie accepted a suspension for a dangerous tackle on Steven Verrier and will miss the Swans clash.

Captain Kyal Horsley is expected to return to the side after over-coming a glute injury that has kept him out since Round 15. 2014 Premiership forward Rhys Waters could be a chance to play his second league game of the year after returning from injury for the reserves last week.

Max Walters, Shaquille Mckenzie and Braden Fimmano are also amongst the league fold and performed well against South Fremantle in the reserves last week.

GAME CHANGERS

JACKSON v CARY
Subiaco’s Declan Jackson and Swans Ricky Cary have been battling against each other since colts and on Saturday we get another installment. Key defender Jackson has been incredibly consistent for the Lions in 2016. He marks forwards like a glove and often meets the ball with a booming Rumble-esque fist. Cary is a crafty forward who can move around faster than his appearances let on. Cary kicked three against the Lions last time they met and Jackson credited the young Swan as the hardest forward in the WAFL in a recent interview.


NOT A FLUKICH
Expect Swans Troy Yukich to get an unbelievable amount of hit-outs. In Round 15 the Lions threw youngsters Sean Bradley and Aaron Heal at the Swan District’s big man but he still collected 51 hit-outs. Yukich had 43 against East Fremantle last week so it’s imperative that Subiaco read Yukich, win the clearance game and constrict the Swans movement out of the centre.

DEFEND OUR DEN 

Defending Medibank Stadium was a key for the Lions if they wanted to retain their crown. Despite a couple of out of character performances at their Leederville home in 2016 the Lions have straightened up to win three straight. The clash against the Swans will be the last regular season game played at Medibank Stadium with the Lions last home game against West Perth scheduled at Kingsway Reserve. Subiaco are 5-2 at Medibank Stadium this year.
