Sydney vs GWS Preview


The Swans came away with a heart-stopping three-point triumph against the Bombers on Thursday night.

Sydney couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season, with four wins and two of those coming against premiership favourites Brisbane (31 points) and Richmond (45 points), away from home.

It’s been the scintillating fast ball movement that has caught the eye of footy fans. Particularly, from their youngsters who provide the flair into a perfectly balanced team.

Meanwhile, the Giants won their first match of the season with a five-goal victory over the Magpies.

GWS were able to maintain possession and move the ball around Collingwood’s defence, something that they’ve struggled to do so far this season.

If they are of any chance to play finals in 2021, they will need to win crunch matches like these against rivals Sydney. Every four points are vital after starting the season 1-4 with a percentage of 87.

The Swans have started the season the better side, and I believe they’ll get the four points on Saturday. However, don’t count the Giants out because I think it will be a close match.

Swans vs GWS Team News


The Swans will be forced to make two changes with Dane Rampe and Isaac Heeney missing with hand injuries. Lewis Melican will definitely return to the side after a strong performance in the VFL.

The Giants will make minimal changes after a strong win against Collingwood.

The two sides last met in Round 12 last season which saw the Swans win by 41 points.
