Match preview:

In the game of the round, that was scheduled on Sunday evening, GWS held on in the last quarter to take a 16-point victory over the Adelaide Crows.

At the Adelaide Oval, where the Giants don’t have a great record, GWS played with speed and took the game on early.

They showed great composure too in the final fifteen minutes, kicking the last three goals of the game to ensure the win; a turn-around performance after a string of four losses.


The Suns though had a poor game at home against Geelong last Saturday – going down by 85 points.

Back at Metricon for the first time in 2018, Gold Coast scored just one behind in the second quarter and missed crucial opportunities in front of goal in the third.

They will want to get back on track with some more positive performances and improve in the back half of the season.

GWS have made one change to their side, Matt de Boer returning from a hamstring injury. He will replace Stephen Coniglio, who has been ruled out with concussion.

Gold Coast will be without Steven May (ankle) and Aaron Hall (shoulder), after the pair were injured in last week’s clash against the Cats.

Jack Leslie and Brad Scheer have been included in the side, Leslie in half-back and Scheer on the interchange.

The last time these two teams met was in Round 2 last year, and the Giants won by 102 points.

Jeremy Cameron kicked six goals and Toby Greene five in a dominant display.


Without Steven May in defence for the Suns, will Cameron kick another bag and put on a display for the Giant’s home crowd?

Ryan Griffen – after an injury-riddled 2017 – will play his 250th game this weekend.

After last week’s dismal performance against the Cats, it’s unlikely to get any better for the Gold Coast coaching staff and players.

The Giants’ will take a big win here and head into the bye on a positive note.

GWS by 47 points.
