On the eve of his 250th AFL match, Sydney Swans spearhead Buddy Franklin (pictured) says his enthusiasm for the game remains as strong as ever.

The Swans take on Collingwood at the SCG on Friday night.

With six years remaining on his contract with the Swans, the 30 year old would go close to the 400 game mark by the end of his current term and he says with his enthusiasm for the game undiminished, the only thing that will prevent him reaching the fabled 400 game total would be injury.
