An interesting match awaits as the GWS Giants and the Hawthorn Hawks look to get into a rhythm at Giants Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 6:10pm (AEST).
After two straight losses since the season resumed, the Giants finally got themselves four points with a gritty two-point win over Collingwood at home. It was a welcome return to form, but GWS need to get into a more consistent rhythm if they want to cement their status as contenders.
The Hawks, on the other hand, have quietly gone about their business this season and have three wins to their name. They knocked off the Lions in Round 1 and have enjoyed strong performances against Richmond and North Melbourne since.
Hawthorn took care of GWS in both of last year’s meetings – a 33-point triumph at the MCG and a 56-point win in snowy conditions in Canberra. However, they’ve never won at Giants Stadium, losing all three visits by 11, 75 and ten points.
