The Sydney Swans face North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium in Round 21 on Sunday, August 7 with Logan McDonald named to return for the first time since Round 16.
Following last week’s 73-point victory over the GIANTS, McDonald comes into the line up while Joel Amartey (omitted) and Josh Kennedy (medi-sub) are omissions this week.
“He has gone back for weeks and has been working hard. As we always knew, he goes about it with the right attitude and comes back into the senior team with another opportunity which is great to see,” said senior coach John Longmire of McDonald’s return.
“We know there are some players playing well in our VFL team and that is important to keep going but our senior team has been striving for that consistency all season, and we are still striving for that so it’s another opportunity this Sunday against the Kangaroos.”
Longmire said he had been impressed by the side’s constant desire to improve and focus on the next challenge.
“The fact is we are always looking forward to our next challenge all the time, whether it is the next quarter or the next game,” Longmire said.
“The ability to recognise what we do well, things we can improve upon and move onto the next challenge and that has been the same again this week.
“The stoppage game of the Kangaroos is very high so we have to make sure we are on top of that,” Longmire added.
“When we are playing well, it’s everyone contributing and a weight of numbers performance so we after that again this week across the whole playing group.”
The match against the Kangaroos will be broadcast live nationally on Fox Footy and Kayo, and on 7mate in NSW and the ACT.
