Swans watch: Stuart Dew turns the Suns around

Today the Suns put the Blues to the sword at Etihad Stadium, leading from start to finish, running out 34-point winners.

Former Sydney Swans premiership assistant coach Stuart Dew took over the Gold Coast Suns in October last year, and has overseen a resurgent and rejuvenated Suns outfit.

The Suns started the season with a 16-point win in deplorable conditions against North Melbourne in Cairns, before backing it up with an upset away win against Carlton in perfect conditions.

Out of contract co-captain Tom Lynch was superb for the Suns, booting 8 goals in a best-on-ground performance, while Lyons and Swallow were superb in support.

Ed Curnow and Marc Murphy were commendable, but there just wasn't enough contributors from the Blues. Former Swan Jed Lamb collected 11 disposals, 3 tackles and a goal in the Blues loss.

Former Swan defender Sam Murray plays today for the Pies against the Giants. We wish him all the best, and an upset win.
