Game notes: The stakes are always high for any Sydney derby, but with the Swans win-less for the season and the Giants flying, this will be a must-watch fixture on Saturday night. Another loss and it will be the first time since 1993 that the Swans have started 0-5, a year they went through three senior coaches by round seven and won just one game on their way to capturing the wooden spoon. GWS has beaten their cross-town rivals in the past two match-ups, with last year’s qualifying final at ANZ Stadium just about the biggest win in the club’s short history. With so many guns in form all over the ground the Giants will be tough to beat but the smaller SCG suits the home side, and with so much on the line, the Swans can never be counted out, especially if they can regain some injured stars for the crucial clash.
Thommo’s Tip: GWS by 14 points.
