The Battle of the Bridge was promoted by the league, the clubs and the football media as a name for the game, in similar terms to the other local derbies that exist in the AFL, such as the Western Derby and Showdown.
The medal for the player adjudged best on ground will be known as the Brett Kirk Medal, named after Brett Kirk, who played 241 games for the Sydney Swans and was their captain from 2006-2010.
Game 5 - The game was delayed at quarter time when a lightning storm caused the delay. The AFL has a policy of player safety and will not permit putting players at risk. The quarter time break lasted 25 minutes, the normal break is five minutes. Sydney only kicked 3 goals after the delay as the Giants when on to win their first game against their more highly accredited opponents.
Game 6 - Former Hawk and $10 million recruit, Lance Franklin, kicked 5 goals, the most kicked by a player in one of these matches.
