It’s been a horror start for Sydney, and it doesn’t get any easier, with the ‘Battle of the Bridge’ coming up in round five. The Giants have bounced back from their shock round one loss, winning three straight games.

If anybody predicted the Swans to 0-5 at the start of the year, you would have called them crazy. However, now it is looking like a real possibility. They are still missing some key players, while the Giants are looking to welcome back Steve Johnson after he missed last week with knee soreness.

The SCG hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for GWS. They are yet to win a game on the ground. This is a big opportunity to change that poor record against an out of sorts Sydney outfit.

The Giants’ skill and potent forward line, should be too much for a down and depleted Sydney side. Don’t rule the Swans¬†out by any means, but GWS should take the win.

Tip: Giants by 21
