    Can the Greater Western Sydney Giants open their account in 2013 against the Adelaide Crows? We’ll have live scores and a blog from 1.10pm AEST.

    After the top-of-the-table clash on Friday and a number of big match-ups yesterday, it’s a bit of a letdown with both of the expansion teams scheduled this Sunday afternoon.

    First up we have the Giants hosting Adelaide, a match-up the Crows should be expected to win comfortably.

    GWS have fallen into a consistent pattern this season, being competitive, or sometimes even more than competitive, for most of the game before fading badly at some point in the second half.

    Last week they even held a solid lead at half time over the mighty Bombers before being overwhelmed.

    It should be expected that a team mostly made up of raw youngsters would struggle to run out games, and maybe Sheedy and co are content that their charges are at least staying in the contest for long stretches, but nonetheless that’s the big reason why the Giants are zero and six.

    If GWS are going to record a win this year, at some point they’ll need a stronger finish.

    Adelaide are entering an interesting phase of their season.

    No doubt they’ve made a disappointing start to 2013, and the injury to Taylor Walker has put a serious dent in their aspirations, but they would have been encouraged by a dogged performance last week against Hawthorn, even if they ultimately fell short.

    And they have the chance to notch up a couple of wins against the Giants and the Saints before a run of fixtures against teams they’ll want to beat to play finals in 2013, including North Melbourne, Fremantle, and Richmond.

    Today they would be expecting a win, confident of a solid percentage boost, and hopeful that one of their second-string key forwards can step up, kick a few goals, and gain some confidence ahead of those important games.

    Josh Jenkins had some good moments last weekend, and mid-sized forward Tom Lynch has also looked impressive further up the ground. Shaun McKernan will offer another tall target this afternoon.

    Sanderson will be keen for them to do some damage on the scoreboard this afternoon.

    At the other end of the ground, Jeremy Cameron was in sparkling form with six goals last weekend. He might find the going tougher today with Rutten and Talia possible opponents.

    Skipper Nathan Van Berlo returns to the Crows midfield, which looks pretty formidable.

    While Treloar, Scully, Ward, and Coniglio should be competitive in patches for GWS, you’d expect Adelaide to get first use of the ball pretty regularly.

    Today both teams will be looking to the future.

    The Giants, as always, will be hoping to continue the development of their promising youngsters, while the Crows focus will be more short-term.

    In a tight finals race, percentage can be vital, and Adelaide won’t want to look back and rue not taking full toll of their one game against the league’s weakest side.

    Even more so, today is a chance to get some confidence up among their young forwards following a rocky start to the year.

    I expect this game to follow a familiar pattern, with the Giants hanging in there for a half or so, before the Crows clear away to win by a big margin.

      Surely this can’t be right, here are the fox ratings for arguably the 2 worst AFL games ever.

      GWS V Adelaide 152k

      Melbourne V GC Suns 237k

      They are actually decent ratings.

        When you consider that the A League final got 297k, then 237k for Melb v GC is a great figure. Also, the match was on 7 Mate as well.

      the 5.8k announced would have been an ok crowd if GWS actually got that many to the ground. There were really only 3-3.5K at the game and half the crowd were crows fans. Almost 2/3 of the bays were completely empty almost all the other bays were lucky to be 10% full.

      The racist comments aren’t going to help this….

        The fact that Sheedy’s comments haven’t even raised an eyebrow in the Melbourne media says all you need to know about the AFL media down here.

      “We don’t have the recruiting officer called the immigration department, recruiting fans for (successful A-League soccer club) Western Sydney Wanderers.”
      Part of Sheedy’s explanation for the poor crowd today…pathetic comment…

        Sheedy has a point though. With the number of migrants from soccer playing nations living in Western Sydney, WSW should have a decent amount of supporters.

          Except a quick look at the pictures of the crowds at Wanderers matches tells a different story. To write off the success of the WSW as ‘just migrants following what comes naturally to them’ is so incredibly offensive it will really come back to haunt him. We heard rumours of him making this statement before in Melbourne but now it’s confirmed. The only person I feel sorry for is the receptionist at the GWS Giants tomorrow morning.

          Then why did they try and set up an AFL team there?

            Allan said | 12:24am | ! Report

            Because they had this mistaken belief that we are an area of 2 million ‘grey’ people who were floating in sports purgatory and were just waiting for the saviour that is the AFL to come along and show us all what real sport is all about.

            They are trying to assimilate them into the Aussie way of life. It will take a while but they will get there.

      Adelaide fell one point short of their biggest ever score in a game today. Back in 2006 they kicked 30.8 against Essendon

      Always nice to achieve a milestone, but perhaps it’s for the best. A big score against the Bombers looks better in the record books than the Giants right now.

      That’s all for me.

      Don’t forget to call mum this afternoon!

      I said in the preview that the Crows expected to win, would be confident of a percentage boost, and hopeful of one their key forwards doing some damage.

      Well, tick, tick and double tick.

      They were never in danger really, winning every quarter comfortably and running out 135 point victors.

      And in a spurt of brilliance, Tom Lynch kicked nine goals between quarter time and three quarter time, eventually finishing with ten in total. Jenkins also did some good things and finished with four.

      Dangerfield with 28 touches and four goals was superb as usual. Kerridge was another big story today, with 26 touches and some really excellent score assists. Thompson, Reilly, Vince and Wright also had plenty of it and were very damaging for Adelaide. After a relatively lacklustre start, they were highly efficient after quarter time.

      In short, they got everything they wanted today.

      Apart from Cameron who kicked three goals and worked hard, there’s not much to say about the Giants. Tomlinson was impressive, with 21 touches and 14 marks. Treloar came into the game late and finished with 24 touches, but today wasn’t his best game.

      After a competitive display against Essendon last week, today feels like a big step backward for GWS. Once the Crows put the foot down the Giants really had no answer. Their only defensive plan seemed to be flood players back in defence, and once they ran out of legs, even that couldn’t work.

      But the big story today is Adelaide and Tom Lynch. Now they can go back to South Australia and plan to turn their good current form into a tilt at the finals.
