Greater Western Sydney Giants vs Sydney Swans Preview
Cross town rivals GWS and Sydney will do battle in Ballarat on Saturday afternoon in a game that will have significant consequences for all teams in the middle of the AFL ladder.
GWS come into the game with two wins, two losses and a draw from their last five games including a one point loss to the Gold Coast on the weekend.
They will be without Lachie Whitfield who suffered a concussion last weekend and his absence will leave a big gap in their midfield.
The Swans have been the surprise packet of the AFL season and they have proven many punters and pundits wrong by continuing to play exceptional football into the business end of the year.
And they just keep getting better!
A 92 point thumping of West Coast was followed by a 19 point win over the current Premiership favourites in the Western Bulldogs in Round 17.
