Sydney Swans coach John Longmire (pictured) says there was plenty to like about his team’s six point defeat by Hawthorn on Friday night.

The 3 and 7 Swans are almost no possibility of making the finals now and will enjoy the break this week to regroup.

There was no bigger performer for either team than Swans First Nations superstar Buddy Franklin whose five goals in a destructive  display left the coach in awe.
