For the first time in fifteen years Sydney Swans will host Collingwood at the SCG. The Swans are looking to kickstart their push to the finals after recent setbacks saw them slip out of the AFL’s top four.
Collingwood are themselves in danger of being eliminated from top four contention with a loss.
This match will see Adam Goodes take to the SCG pitch for the first time since taking time off at the height of the recent booing controversy. The Swans fans gave Goodes tremendous support in his absence during the last home game against the Crows, and are sure to welcome him back with an equally rousing reception on Friday.
It’s a sign of the incredible career that Goodes has had that he is the only player who will run out this weekend who also played in Collingwood’s last appearance at the SCG in 2000.
2015 AFL season, round 20
