All going to plan there will be no boots to the face on Saturday but they may well be some boos for Toby Greene, who continues to thrive on such treatment according to AFL club GWS.
Greene was booed off the SCG after last year's elimination-final derby, having almost outscored Sydney in his return from a hamstring injury.
The small forward booted three goals in a best-on-ground performance but it was his studs-up marking style that enraged the Swans' fans.
Greene, having been on the sidelines since round one because of a calf injury, will return in this weekend's derby.
The boo has proven a hot topic this week but Giants coach Leon Cameron has no issue if the red-and-white faithful choose to jeer Greene - far from it.
"Some players just absolutely thrive on it," Cameron said.
"Toby thrives on that sort of stuff. He's used to it and it doesn't worry him. He keeps on going and ploughs through that."
Callan Ward and Adam Tomlinson are among Greene's teammates to have expressed similar sentiments in the past.
"Every time he's been booed, he's stood up. Which probably angers the opposition even more," Ward said.
Greene has worked hard on adjusting his approach to marking contests after the AFL introduced what has been colloquially termed the 'Toby Greene rule'.
"I know that people call it the Toby Greene rule but it's happened a couple of times already this year in other games," Cameron said.
"No doubt he has had to adjust that technique because clearly we don't want to be giving away a free kick in a marking contest.
"He'll be fine."
Cameron also revealed his desire for Greene to spend more time on the ball later this season, once he is fully fit.
