GWS Giants vs Sydney Swans Tips


The GWS Giants extended their impressive winning run to seven matches last week as they defeated the Western Bulldogs 78-73 and can make that eight straight in the Sydney Derby.

The Sydney Swans also improved on their winning run as they downed the Essendon Bombers in a 101-99 win last time out, but the Giants might prove too much.

Head to Head


The Giants ran out 107-106 winners in a thrilling match back in April, with this ending a run of two wins in a row for the Swans. 

In their last 10 meetings, the Swans have won four times, while the Giants have six victories. 

GWS Giants Form 


The GWS Giants have been superb of late, with their seven-game winning run seeing them move up to sixth on the ladder.

The Giants have hit top gear at the right time as they have put six points between themselves and Geelong in ninth in the race to the finals.

A win here would see the Giants dent the hopes of the 10th-placed Swans, while it would further strengthen their own claims to a spot in the postseason finals.

Sydney Swans Form 


The Syndey Swans have been excellent of late, with wins over the Western Bulldogs, Fremantle Dockers and Essendon Bombers seeing the Swans notch a three-game winning run. 

While the Swans have impressed of late, they know they have to keep this winning run going as they look to ensure they are not watching the knockout rounds from the comfort of their own homes. 

Currently sitting in 10th on the ladder with 38 points, the Swans could move above the Bulldogs in eighth with a win, while they could find their postseason dreams in tatters if they lose.

Dane Rampe, Lance Franklin and James McInerney are all injured, with Andrew Francis and Tom Hickey coming in for the Swans.
