Time to learn the GWS's team song:

Well there’s a big, big sound
From the West of the town
It’s the sound of the mighty GIANTS
You feel the ground a-shaking
The other teams are quaking
In their boots before the GIANTS

We take the longest strides
And the highest leap
We’re stronger than the rest
We’re the Greater Western Sydney GIANTS
We’re the biggest and the best
And we will never surrender
We’ll fight until the end
We’re greater than the rest

And Stoinis with a 6 off the last ball of the innings to reach his century!
I went too early was too busy googling what concessions that Adelaide , Bears , Freo , Port and West Coast got when they joined the comp 😀

Suns probably got similar but look how that has worked out , probably worse now than when they started.

Not sure how you start a new team without giving them concessions to players 🤔

So Jyhe got run out off a wide , then Stoinis hit a 6 ?

Will Sutherland 1/102 from 10......yikes

I remember when I was living in Sydney and they won their first game , they had about 20 people in the room holding up the words for them all to sing

I'd never thought I'd say this, but I'm going for Richmond in the grand final. GWS are the new public enemy number 1 for the Western Bulldogs (I love and hate this rivalry).
