The Swans continued to build an imposing head of steam with yesterdays 35point win over Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium. It was third-placed Sydneys seventh-straight win and they will fancy their chances against the Power, who took St Kilda apart after half-time on Saturday for a 70-point win. But Franklin has again risked the wrath of the match review panel with a high bump on Suns youngster Clay Cameron in the 17.7 (109) to 10.14 (74) win. Tippett was also subbed off with a sore knee and looked proppy after the final siren. Franklin could well escape sanction for the Cameron incident the Suns player was able to continue playing immediately afterwards. The Swans star bumped as Cameron kicked the ball and Franklins shoulder caught him in the face. Tippett will have to prove his fitness ahead of Saturdays big clash. Structurally the doctor said it was okay but it was obviously sore enough to sub him so he couldnt come back on. Im not sure, coach John Longmire said. While Port will start favourites, Sydneys form lately has probably been even better. Clearly theyre the form team in the competition at the moment, Longmire said. Theyre two games clear on top of the ladder and have played some terrific teams. But well go in with a bit of confidence. Beaten but unbowed, Gold Coast coach Guy McKenna says the Suns loss was no reason to write off his charges. There was obviously a fair few too many having a holiday last week and we did what we did, McKenna said. Tonight was another step forward for our group. When I say step forward, we might have just stubbed our toe thats all, Bombers lose Watson for crucial game period TOP-EIGHT hopefuls Essendon are set lose Jobe Watson for up to a month after the skipper injured his thigh in Saturday nights narrow AFL win over Greater Western Sydney. Watson limped off midway through the final quarter of the gritty contest at Spotless Stadium and did not return. Coach Mark Thompson said the 29-year-old would be assessed but suspected he had damaged his quadriceps. If it ends up being a quad, its probably four weeks (out), he said. (Well need to) get our heads around that. Its not always a bad thing, as long as he does good rehab. Its just over halfway through the season, so there's plenty of time. But its the coming weeks that are perhaps the most crucial for the Bombers, who sit just outside the top eight with a 6-5 record. They next face Melbourne, Adelaide and Gee long all in the Victorian capital matches that could determine their place in the finals. They're all teams we are competing against especially Adelaide and Geelong so wed like to really play well, said Thompson. If we got the same result we did (against GWS), wed take it every day of the week. While the expected return of Michael Hurley from a back injury next week will be a boost, David Myers is an uncertainty after being reported for striking young Giant Devon Smith. The third-quarter incident sparked a fiery melee and breathed new life into a tired GWS outfit, who gave Essendon fans a fright in the final term when they clawed back to within a point. But Thompson said he never feared losing the game. We werent jumping out of our skin, he said. And when that happens, its good to win still.
