    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.

      Lucky the Swans kicked 27 behinds or it could have been a flogging!

      Thanks for the comic input.

      FULL TIME. Swans 171 (24.27) beat Giants 42 (5.12) by 129 points.

      Abysmal from GWS, very good from the Swans—even without being all that good. That percentage will help the Swans heading into the finals, as the 2013 season can’t end soon enough for the Giants.

      McVeigh (36 disposals) and Hannebery (31 disposals) were brilliant today.

      Mitchell, Tippett, White and Pyke all kick three goals for the Swans while Cameron kicked three of the five Giants’ goals. He was probably the lone spark from them today, though Shiel was also pretty impressive at the back.

      Is the GWS experiment working? Hard to say, but it doesn’t appear like it. Swans weren’t that good today, and they won by over 100 points. Make of that what you will from the defending premiers.

      Anyway, thanks for joining me today. Make sure you keep it on The Roar this afternoon for post-match reaction and other live commentary from around the league this afternoon (games listed below).

      Thanks! Dan.

        129 point demolition when the Captain came out and said they had a chance of winning, is there anything this team can do right ?

          If the captain came out and said “We have no chance and we just hope to keep it under 100” would you be happy?

          % is almost irrelevant for the swans as they have that draw which means the only team that they are competing against for % is Freo.

            Yes I would, because you can’t fool the people in the area you claim to represent.

      Q4 1:45 remaining. Swans 171 (24.27) lead Giants 42 (5.12).

      Hannebery goes long and hits O’Keefe right in front, 20 out. Too easy from Sydney, and this is the easiest training session they’ve ever had. O’Keefe won’t miss from there, and the margin is 129 points.

      This is the most scoring shots (51) that the Swans have had in a single game in over 30 years.

      Rushed behind, Giants. Swans looking to chip it around now, but knowing how easy today has been for them, they’ll likely grab another goal. Last goal-scorer? I’ll go with Kennedy as we approach time-on.

      Q4 2:00 remaining. Swans 165 (23.27) lead Giants 41 (5.11).

      From the kick off, Swans go up the right to O’Keefe. O’Keefe to Kennedy inside 50, who looks up and hits Pyke on the goal-line. Goes back and slots his third from the day. Great mark from the Canadian.

      Swans by 124, and they haven’t even been that good.

      Another goal-scorer for the Swans, as Bolton gets on the board after some scrappy footy leads to a kick off the ground. Can the Giants finish the game with a goal here? The kids are getting tired…

      All Swans, all inside 50. And like so much of today, it’s another behind from Sydney.

      Already 100+ in front, but should be about 150 in front. Longmire won’t be THAT impressed with the margin, although it is hard to be unimpressed when your team wins by over 100 points.

      Giants experiment isn’t working.
