Crows at home are a difficult proposition but the Giants won there a month ago giving hope. They weren't convincing against the Suns at times two weeks ago.

Our form in the last two months has been solid so we can pinch this one.

Swans by 6.
 
I like the way we matchup with Crows, so much more pressure on them, loss ends it, at home, hot favourites…if we keep it tight on the scoreboard and keep the crowd restless, umpires aside, we can get over the top of them. Quietly confident with this one.

The age / experience spread across each team is interesting.

If we lose this, nobody better use the “we’re a young team” excuse!
Not sure that has been trotted out too much this year….experience is building….injuries more than young this season, and rightly so. The difference we are seeing with a more settled nearly full strength team is chalk and cheese.

Kidding, right?
I've barely seen the Crows this year so can't comment on them, but I think we are playing really good footy of late. There are glaring weak points in our game but what's really heartening is that as a team we are finding enough of our strengths to create ways around those weaknesses. Things are really starting to click and I am pretty confident we'll get this one.
