Having bowed out of two consecutive preliminary finals to the eventual premiers, the GWS Giants entered the 2018 season under pressure to take the next step and claim the flag that so many had automatically assumed would be theirs given the talent on the list.
A strong opening month had the Giants on top of the ladder going into Round 5, but a four-game losing streak and injuries to key players soon had many questioning whether GWS had the cattle to make a third straight finals series.
Those doubts were vanquished when Leon Cameron led his squad to nine wins over the next ten matches. A top four berth was in their grasp, but losses to Sydney and Melbourne in the final fortnight of the season saw the Giants drop to seventh on the ladder, setting up a blockbuster elimination final against the Swans.
With reported salary cap problems, the Giants were forced into a busy trade period. Talented youngster Will Setterfield and selection 71 were sent to Carlton in exchange for pick 43 and Carlton’s future second-round selection.
Inaugural Giant Tom Scully, who managed just two games in 2018 due to a badly broken ankle, was also traded – Hawthorn grabbing the midfielder for Gold Coast’s future fourth-round pick.
Versatile tall Rory Lobb was sent back home to Perth, traded alongside picks 14, 43 and 47 to Fremantle for selections 11 and 19.
In one of the final trades before the deadline, star midfielder Dylan Shiel – who had multiple Victorian suitors – became a Bomber, Essendon giving up pick 9 and their future first-round selection and getting back the Giants’ future second-round pick.
Needing a boost to their midfield depth after so many departures, Greater Western Sydney signed former Fremantle midfielder Tommy Sheridan as a delisted free agent.
Given the introduction of live trading at the draft, the Giants were able to move up the start of the second round to secure the talented Ian Hill at selection 24, before GWS academy player Kieren Briggs joined the club.
After another failed September campaign, John Longmire entered the 2018 season with his seat starting to warm up slowly, having just one premiership to his name from seven consecutive finals appearances.
After sitting in third position at the conclusion of Round 13, the Swans found themselves out of the top eight just over a month later after four losses in a five-game stretch. A strong finish to the year helped Sydney secure sixth position for the second consecutive year, setting up a home SCG final against crosstown rivals Greater Western Sydney, but in a poor showing the Swans were kept to just four goals as they succumbed by 49 points.
Smooth-moving defender Jake Lloyd capped off a great year by winning his first Bob Skilton Medal, beating Luke Parker and Lance Franklin who rounded out the top three.
In a busy trade period the Swans got involved with the Mitch McGovern trade to Carlton, sending pick 13 to Adelaide in exchange for selections 26, 28 and 40. After 106 games in nine years with the Swans, Gary Rohan was traded to Geelong for pick 62. That same selection was then sent to North Melbourne in exchange for midfielder Ryan Clarke.
Three-time All Australian midfielder and premiership player Dan Hannebery and pick 28 were packaged and sent to St Kilda for selection 39 and a future second-round pick. On the final day of trading Geelong defender Jackson Thurlow was sent to the harbour city, with the Cats getting back pick 70. Joining him was teammate Dan Menzel, who was signed by Sydney as a delisted free agent.
