Swans Academy continue unbeaten run

The Sydney Swans Academy have continued their unbeaten charge over Round 3 of the 2018 NAB AFL Academy Series over the weekend.

Travelling to Alice Springs to take on the Northern Territory, the Swans were up against unfamiliar climate conditions, but their class shone through despite it.

Defeating the Territory by 29 points, it was time for the likes of Rory Barkley and Joey Reinhard (3 goals each) to lead in the forward line for the Swans, with their main points contributor this year, Nick Blakey rested.

Lachlan Swaney, Luke Parks and Joshua Stern were also named on a long list of Sydney Swans best players for the day.

The Swans will travel to Tasmania this weekend to continue their unbeaten run over Round 4 of the Academy Series, playing the locals on Saturday, May 5.
