GWS Giants

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.

Heavy favourites to win the premiership in 2017, the Giants were superb in the first half of year, but spluttered through the season’s latter half. Finishing in fourth, they were downed by Adelaide in the first week, before destroying West Coast in the semi-finals. Their season concluded with a loss to Richmond in the preliminary final.

With a list undeniably laden with talent, GWS are still considered a strong contender in 2018. But with a number of departures over the last couple of seasons, their depth is starting to come under question. Many analysts claim if the Giants are to win a premiership with this list, it’ll have to be this year.
