Although recycled coaches are currently out of fashion , the head and assistant coach of GWS , Kevin Sheedy and Mark Williams respectively , offer much . Both are experienced ex- players , are winningÂ Premiership coaches , have been keen recruiters of new talent , and are shrewd businessmen . Combine these attributes with those of Stephen Silvangi , arguably one of the best defenders to pull on a guernsey , and they represent a formidable brains trust .
Is it a coincidence or a clever marketing ploy that the GWS Giants are wearing the orange black and white colours of their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys ? These colours are the same as those of the other team from the West of Sydney , the NRL Wests Tigers side , who already have a strong fan base in the region .
