Is there a more exciting team at the moment than the Swans? No side moves the ball more efficiently from defensive-50 to forward-50 (currently ranked no.1 in the competition).
In recent weeks they have knocked off premiership favourites the Western Bulldogs, and thumped West Coast by 92 points.
The latest win over the Dogs halved their flag odds from $26 to $13 and, as detailed this week, has positioned them with a shot at premiership glory in 2021.
They face crosstown rivals GWS in (of all places) Ballarat owing to NSW’s ongoing Covid outbreak. One of the league most inconsistent outfits, the Giants are proving a nightmare with punters.
Two weeks ago they defeated top-of-the-ladder Melbourne, yet last week went down to the lowly Gold Coast Suns.
They miss Lachie Whitfield (concussion) in what could prove a big loss in expected blustery conditions, however captain Stephen Coniglio and Matt de Boer should return.
The Giants beat the Swans at SCG 71-69 in Round 5 last April.
