It's normally Greater Western Sydney's young talent that's being touted as future stars, but it was a couple of young Sydney Swans who shone under the Manuka Oval lights, leading their team to a 40-point victory on Thursday night.

Both Luke Parker and Tom Mitchell (two goals, 34 possessions) were prolific through the middle in the pre-season NAB Challenge match as the Swans' midfield got on top for all but a spell in the third quarter, running out comfortable 2.15.7 (115) to 0.11.9 (75) winners.
