How to watch Sydney Swans vs Hawthorn Hawks AFL live and free
Former AFL giants Sydney and Hawthorn face off once more at the SCG on Saturday. This is how you can tune in.
The Sydney Swans and Hawthorn established one of the great modern AFL rivalries over the past decade. They met in the 2012 and 2014 grand finals, winning one apiece, and were model franchises for the rest of the competition to follow.
They both did their best to avoid a typically inevitable slide down the ladder, but the wolves are at their doors. The Swans are playing a number of youngsters in their rebuilding efforts. The Hawks are an older side and decorated coach Alastair Clarkson finds himself under pressure.

The Hawks have been topping up their list with experienced talent in an effort to stay competitive, but cracks are appearing in 2020. We'll lean towards Hawthorn's wiser heads getting the points in this one.
