This Sydney Derby looks a one-sided affair as the Swans look to jump into the top four with a percentage-boosting win over the Giants at the SCG on Saturday.
The Giants are in horrendous form and won’t get near Sydney in this one.
The expansion club has lost five of its last six games by an average of 34 points. They’ve failed to cover the line in three straight. They are 0-11 against top eight teams in 2022 with an average losing margin of 35 points.
The sugar hit from Mark McVeigh replacing Leon Cameron has absolutely worn off.
Their cross-town rivals are looking ominous as September approaches. They’ve won six of their last eight including victories over Melbourne, Fremantle and the Bulldogs.
Sydney are 7-2 at home this season with a percentage of 130. Five of those wins have come by 30+ points.
No team has kicked more points over the last three weeks than Sydney. No team has kicked fewer than GWS.
On a sunny winter day in the Harbour City, this should be a big, big win for the Bloods.

Same Game Multi
In a forgettable year for GWS, the resurgence of co-captain Stephen Coniglio has been a huge positive. He’s had 30+ touches in five of his last seven games.
Harry Himmelberg is racking up plenty of touches since moving to defence, recording 20+ touches in seven of his last eight. He’s taken the second-most kick-ins for the Giants in that time.
Heeney saves his best for the Sydney Derby, booting 3+ goals in three of his last four outings against GWS and 4+ goals in two of his last six overall. In what should be an easy victory, he’ll be looking to cash in.
