The Geelong Cats host the Greater Western Sydney Giants to start AFL Round 7. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 7:50pm (AEST).

Geelong’s last home game was a missed opportunity. Having led for a fair chunk against the Swans, they capitulated in the final quarter to lose by three goals.

GWS, for their part, won comfortably last weekend – as one would’ve expected, given they played the struggling Brisbane Lions.

In terms of history, the Giants have lost all three of their visits to this ground by an average of 40 points.

The Cats, on the other hand, have a great record at this ground, and a formidable home advantage. Thus, this match, as history tells us, should be a win for Geelong.

However, there are changes aplenty for both sides.

The Giants have lost former Tiger Brett Deledio and imposing key forward Jeremy Cameron, who join the likes of Josh Kelly, Rory Lobb and Toby Greene in the stands. Former Blue Dylan Buckley and ex-Collingwood player Lachlan Keeffe join the side for their club debuts.

Geelong have made three changes, with Rhys Stanley and James Parsons omitted, and George Horlin-Smith out with concussion. Scott Selwood, Zac Smith and former Bulldog Stewart Crameri all join the side.

Prediction
All signs are pointing towards a comfortable Cats victory, but ‘great record at the ground and up against a Sydney side missing several of their best players’ described last weekend’s game – look how that turned out.

Still, the Cats should win this one – probably narrowly, spoiling Giants’ coach Leon Cameron’s 100th match.

Geelong by 7 points.
