Swan and Thomas fit and firing for Pies

Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse says midfield duo Dane Swan and Dale Thomas are rejuvenated after two-week breaks ahead of their AFL clash with Sydney.

Swan had been carrying several knocks and was sent to the United States for a mini-training camp, while Thomas missed the Magpies' big win over Melbourne in their last hitout a fortnight ago.

Collingwood had the bye last week, and face the Swans at Sydney's ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.

Malthouse said the enforced breaks had benefitted both players.

"He does (seem rejuvenated)," Malthouse said of Swan.

"And so does Dale Thomas. I think both boys will benefit by it ... for the long-term you'll see a rejuvenated pair."

Collingwood have a nine-match winning streak against the Swans stretching back to 2006 when the Swans were reigning premiers.
