The GWS Giants unveil their home ground Skoda Stadium as the rampaging Essendon come to town. We’ll have live scores from 7.40pm AEST.

The Giants registered their first win two weeks ago against Gold Coast, but were smashed by the Brisbane Lions last week.

Callan Ward and Rhys Palmer were the only two players to notch 20 disposals in the 92-point loss. They remain in 16th place on the ladder.

Tonight, the Giants get their first run on their main home ground, in what is sure to be a big occasion for the AFL’s newest club.

The Bombers continue to go from strength to strength, last week disposing of a Richmond side that kept coming.

Four goals to Paddy Ryder and 30 possessions for captain Jobe Watson helped set up the 19-point win.

It was the seventh win of the year for the side. With only the one loss, they sit pretty comfortably in third place and have a healthy percentage of 133.

The Giants have made a host of changes with Tomas Bugg, Curtly Hampton, Dylan Shiel, Devon Smith, Adam Kennedy and the experience Adam Kennedy back in.

Rhys Palmer is the notable exclusion.

For Essendon, Dustin Fletcher and Dyson Heppell are out injured, while Leroy Jetta has been suspended.
