The Sydney Swans will look to make it three wins in a row when they take on GWS Giants at the Sydney Cricket Ground this afternoon. Join us for live scores and commentary as our coverage gets underway at 1.10pm AEST.

The Swans were solid without being inspiring last week against Melbourne and were easily beaten on the ground by the Demons, but were still able to chalk up a 31-point victory.

Their work at stoppages was world-class and was enough to guide them to victory – something they’ll be looking to happen again this week.

And, if we’re going to be honest, they shouldn’t have any issues at all with the Giants, who still remain winless throughout 2013.

GWS threw everything they had at the Western Bulldogs last week but were unable to walk away with the points in hand.

That match will definitely have taken a lot out of them and could well lead to a blow-out in this one if the reigning premiers show up and deliver the world-class performance that we’ve been waiting for.

Sydney will be without a number of key players as Adam Goodes (knee), Lewis Jetta (shin), Sam Reid (quad) and Lewis Roberts-Thompson (knee) are all unavailable.

Shane Mumford (cheekbone) and Rhyce Shaw (abdomen) will also both have pass a late fitness test to be included for the Sydney derby.

The Swans slipped up against Port Adelaide a few weeks back and they didn’t really get out of second gear against Melbourne, so expect them to turn that around in this one.

The Giants have started games very well this season (as Geelong can no doubt attest to) but they simply don’t have the prowess and ability to win turnovers and dead-ball situations like the Swans do.

And in the end, that should pave the way for a huge second half that sees the Swans run away with a very commanding, percentage-boosting, win.

Swans by 81 points.
