Teams: Sydney Swans vs Adelaide Crows, Round 5, 2018

The Sydney Swans have made two changes ahead of their blockbuster Friday night clash against the Adelaide Crows at the SCG.

Forward Gary Rohan and defender Harry Marsh return to the side that defeated the Western Bulldogs in round 4, with Aliir Aliir and Nic Newman making way.

The speedster forward missed last week's win against the Bulldogsm to be by the side of his wife Amie Rohan who was giving birth to their twin daughters.

Coach John Longmire said Rohan was a welcome addition to the team.

“The whole football community really supported Gary and Amie last week which was fantastic,” Longmire said.

“He has trained all this week and he is really looking forward to getting out there and playing so it is good to have him back in the team."

Harry Marsh forced his way back into the senior team off the back of several strong NEAFL performances.

“He has been playing well for a number of weeks, he played some pre-season games in our seniors and played well there.”

“He needs to be rewarded for that form in our reserves over the last few weeks so it is good to have him back in the team.”
