SwansCast LIVE before the 2017 Bob Skilton Medal

The SwansCast crew will be returning on Friday, broadcasting LIVE on Facebook from 5pm AEDST, leading up to Sydney Swans's night of nights, the 2017 Bob Skilton Medal.

The Swans will be providing a live stream of the event starting at 7pm, kicking off with the Chairman's address.

The event will crown the best players of the season, be it Rising Star's, Clubman, Player's player or the Club Champion.

All will be revealed on the night, and while we won't be there, we'll be broadcasting our pre-medal show on Facebook from 5pm.

The SwansCast crew for the night will be Justin Mitchell from The Swans Blog, Stephen Treloar from Over The Line Sports and Myles Stedman, NEAFL journalist.

Last years' result was an exciting count, with Josh Kennedy winning the award in stunning fashion with his outstanding finals series, and grand final performance.

Is a repeat on the cards? Can Franklin win his first Bob Skilton Medal? All will be revealed on Friday night.

We'll have our Bob Skilton medal preview up tonight and more content to follow.

Since you're here...

... we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading The Swans Blog than ever, but we don't accept advertising, and don't want to do so in the future. Unlike many other news and media organisations, fan forums and fan media, we haven't put up a paywall, or displayed ads - we want to keep our content as open as possible.

The Swans Blog is an independent fan blog and community platform. Our content takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. We do it because we love what we do and we believe our perspective matters - because it may be your perspective too.

If everyone who reads our blog, who likes it, is supporting it, our future would be much more secure.
