Game notes: The Battle of the Bridge has been predominantly dominated by Sydney over it’s relatively short history, with the exception of that shock R1 win by the Giants in 2014. Shane Mumford will be looking forward to more monster tackles against his old mob after nearly knocking Mitch Duncan into next week. Some rumours have indicated that small tremors were felt off the coast of NSW after such a collision. Parker, Mitchell, Kennedy, Jack and Hannebery have formed one of the most devastating midfields in the competition, but will face a tough match up against the likes of Shiel, Ward, Griffen and the in-form Tom Scully. Heath Shaw ripped up this match in the pre-season with 147 points, as did Toby Greene with 133.
This one is a little tough to tip, as I sense GWS will have a real crack despite being the underdogs.
MJ’s Tip: Sydney by 16.
