GREATER Western Sydney is finally developing a killer instinct.
That's the view of coach Kevin Sheedy after the Giants beat St Kilda by 16 points at Blacktown on Saturday.
One week after copping a 16-goal hammering from Essendon, the Giants rebounded to defeat a nearly full-strength Saints 16.6 (102) to 12.14 (86) after running out the final quarter stronger.
"That's a learning procedure that you've got to get killer instinct into your game and slowly but surely, we'll get that," Sheedy said.
"When the game was there, we actually took back the game."
Meanwhile, Sheedy has christened the Giants' opening AFL game against the Sydney Swans at ANZ Stadium on March 30, the Battle of the Bridge.
