Swans strong at home

SAWTELL is full of confidence coming off its biggest win in several seasons against the previously undefeated Grafton.

The Saints look too powerful for the battling Coffs Swans this afternoon.

In good news for the competition, the Swans' return to a revamped Fitzroy Oval has led to the club gaining strength of numbers and it was encouraging that the club fielded three strong teams last week.

The Swans are at home again today and will not roll over lightly, with Sam Turner returning to some form and Tyler Clayton stepping up.

Matt Andrews has given some bite up forward, while Daniel Dickson continues to impress in his debut season.

However, the Saints choked off Grafton's elite forward line by dominating the midfield and goals will be hard to come by for the Swans today.

Todd Matthews was brilliant last week and Trent Mitchell is a star in the making.

Courtney Tune will dominate the smaller Swans' ruckmen and Jake Saunders and Alex Pearson have fantastic leg speed.

This could be tight but the Saints will run it out better.
