Giants can do it and, with their new kit, do it in style.

Giants by 18 if we come in with some intent.

We don’t and Swans run rampant by 50.

I do like your new kit. Finally no clash when we play each other I mean seriously, Orange v Red running around. A Blood Orange.

Ridiculous that it's taken 9 or 10 seasons to get distinguishing uni's in this match-up. I've mentioned Giants wearing all-black in the away fixture since day 1. Likewise Swans predominantly white in their away fixture.

Re game - wondering how long it's going to take opposition coaches to work out the Swans new style and young 'uns. Hopefully one more week.

Essendon worked it out last week, went man on man and pressured the ball carrier all the time.

It's not rocket science. Any team who applies the better defensive pressure goes a long way to winning the game. Our pressure the first 3 rounds was elite.

We also dominated the clearances against Essendon but we couldn't kick straight. Essendon really put the heat on us defensively as well.

If we can maintain the manic defensive pressure on GWS then I'll back us in. GWS like time and space and their game breaks down when they don't have it.
