Contenders with flaws, both the GWS Giants and Brisbane Lions will be looking to secure a crucial victory at Giants Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 1:45pm (AEST).
In perhaps the hardest game of the round to predict, a strong Brisbane side humbled by Geelong last weekend travel south to face the Giants. Brisbane’s form line had been superb, beating all four South and West Australian teams – all but one by four goals or more – before last weekend’s fade out.
The Giants’ form line hasn’t been as sparkling, with several frustrating losses compounded by last weekend’s poor effort against the Power. They did slot two wins – over Collingwood and Hawthorn – but it’s largely been a frustrating season for the Giants, who begun this round outside the top eight.
Chris Fagan’s men have the disadvantage of being south of the border. They have only won at Giants Stadium once, last July, in their only victory against GWS since 2017.
Leon Cameron has made three changes to a losing side. Tom Green and Jackson Hately are omitted, with Callan Ward out with injury. Young trio Jye Caldwell, Zac Langdon and Tim Taranto are the Giants’ inclusions.
Brisbane will play an unchanged side.
