There are not many that do stoppages better than the Swans.
Their game plan is predicated on a ferocious contested ball approach at stoppages.
They have won the most contested possessions and clearances in the AFL this season.
Sydney does not have a standout superstar midfielder that leads the way in these categories.
Rather, the Swans bank on an incredibly even spread of quality on-ballers who play for each other.
Josh Kennedy is as hard as any midfielder going, Kieren Jack, Dan Hannebery, Ryan O’Keefe and Jarrad McVeigh complete the premiership-winning on-ball division.
Freo will welcome the return of Nat Fyfe, who is one of the best contested ball players in the competition.
Get set for lots and lots of stoppages.
