Game notes: The 13th edition of the Sydney derby has enormous finals implications for both sides, with the Giants clinging to spot in the top two, and the Swans finally sitting inside the eight for the first time this season. Sydney is the form side of the competition having won eight of its past nine games, while the Giants have taken full points just once in their past four, against the Brisbane Lions, and enters the match coming off consecutive draws against Geelong and Hawthorn. In-form Swans defenders Dane Rampe and Heath Grundy will have a huge task trying to stop Jeremy Cameron and Jonathon Patton, with help from youngster Lewis Melican, while Giants co-captain Phil Davis will renew acquaintances with Lance Franklin, who has lost his radar, kicking 11.19 in his past five matches. Spotless Stadium is set to sell out for this monster cross-town encounter.
