GWS v Sydney
Saturday 7:25pm at Spotless Stadium

The Battle of the Bridge should be a fascinating and all-important affair despite having the worst name of any derby in all of Australian sport.

Greater Western Sydney have remarkably drawn their last two games, finishing level with Geelong and Hawthorn in consecutive weeks. More incredibly, six of the last 10 Giants games have been decided by three points or fewer. The Giants are now second the ladder with a 10-3-2 record. The Giants rank fourth in attack and fifth in defence.

Sydney are incredibly into the Top 8 with an 8-7 record following eight wins in their last nine matches. They have won five straight with three of those wins by 35 or more. The Swans have conceded 51 points or fewer in three of their last five. The Swans rank second defensively while they rate ninth in scoring.

What To Expect
GWS have felt like an incredibly lucky team this year. They have got away with so many close games and it feels like the wheel will turn soon. Sydney are excellent as an outsider and really hold their form after a big defensive effort. The Giants have struggled as a betting proposition at Spotless of late. Ride the Swans wave.
