Game Chat – Brisbane vs GWS

Written by Huttabito on June 23 2018

WHERE AND WHEN:ย the Gabba, Saturday, June 23, 4.35pm AEST

SUMMARY
Greater Western Sydney hit some good form prior to the bye and will start this contest as a warm favourite. After struggling for much of the season with a heavy injury toll and some patchy form, the Giants sprang back to life with a strong win over the Crows in Adelaide followed by a resounding thumping of Gold Coast before having a week off. With the midfield, led by Callan Ward, Dylan Shiel, Josh Kelly and Lachie Whitfield, back to its best, and forward Jeremy Cameron finding his best form of the season, GWS again looks a formidable combination. Despite winning just one game all season, the Lions have been more than competitive, particularly at the Gabba, and should push the Giants. Harris Andrews is one of the in-form defenders of the competition, while Dayne Zorko and Dayne Beams provide an elite midfield punch. The Lions might give Leon Cameron’s men a scare, but with a top-eight spot to chase, the Giants should knuckle down and win this one.

  2. Right Joshua Kelly. Big debut please mate.

    Just heard Harris Andrews has been clean knocked out before he hit the deck. Sorry for those that have. Sounds dreadful ๐Ÿ™

        1. its not like Cameron at all , just a brain fade , but when u lead out , run too far under the ball , take your eyes off it , cok your elbow out as far as you can & connect to the head of the courageous player running back into the contest who’s eyes are on the ball , there isn’t much grey area there , Cameron will try to say it was self protection & the MRP will take pity on him & give him 3 down to 2 with an early plea because of his good record , but good record or not , was 1 of the lowest acts this year ..

  5. massive SC score difference between Kelly’s and Coniglios scores …
    Kelly 30 touches, with 21 kicks. Conig 26 touches with 9 kicks. More contested possies and clearances for Conigs … same number of clangers … but 65 point difference??
    Is the kick difference enough for that???
