Game Chat – GWS v Sydney

Written by Motts on August 3 2019

Where and when: Giants Stadium, Saturday August 3, 2.10pm AEST 

What it means for GWS: After two courageous wins against Collingwood and Port Adelaide, the Giants must consolidate and maintain their form against the Swans to remain in the hunt for a top four finish.

What it means for Sydney: Finals are out of the equation, but the Swans have been extremely competitive in recent weeks. A high-intensity derby will be greatly beneficial to the young team.

The stat: The Giants’ three tall forwards Jeremy Cameron (57), Jeremy Finlayson (34) and Harry Himmelberg (31) have 122 goals between them this season, and without their best key defender and co-captain Dane Rampe, the Swans could be in for a tough day.

The match-up: George Hewett v Lachie Whitfield

The underrated Hewett has had Whitfield’s number before and is a chance to go to him again at Giants Stadium. The GWS star is extremely damaging roaming all over the ground as a high half forward, but Hewett has the tank to run with him.

It’s a big week for: Tom Papley

The Swans’ leading goalkicker was kept to just one goal from four possessions against Geelong last week. With every member of Carlton’s recruiting team in the stands and if his side is any chance of causing an upset, the livewire small forward must have a big impact.

Big call: Kick kings Jake Lloyd and Heath Shaw will have a day out at Giants Stadium and finish the game with at least 50 between them.

Mottsy’s Tip: GWS by 40 points


While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.
