The GWS Giants joined the AFL competition in 2012, having been granted the 18th licence in 2010 as part of the league’s expansion push. The Giants play at Spotless Stadium in Sydney’s Olypmic Park, while also playing some home games in Canberra, where they enjoy significant support.
Despite suffering a humiliating 89-point loss in the 2019 grand final, Greater Western Sydney’s barnstorming run through September and the return of captain Stephen Coniglio – who missed their entire finals campaign – made them a popular pick to go one better and claim their first flag in 2020.
Instead, the Giants proved to be one of the most disappointing teams of the season. They looked a shadow of their normal selves, never reaching the previous season’s highs and finishing the year off particularly poorly to finish in tenth – a result that seemed unfathomable and puts the club at the crossroads.
