R22, 2015, Greater Western Sydney 20.12 (132) d Carlton 7.9 (51) at Spotless Stadium
R7, 2015, Greater Western Sydney 19.21 (135) d Carlton 9.3 (57) at Etihad Stadium
R14, 2014, Greater Western Sydney 15.10 (100) d Carlton 14.8 (92) at Spotless Stadium
R10, 2013, Carlton 22.16 (148) d Greater Western Sydney 8.6 (54) at Etihad Stadium

Game notes: This appears to be a pretty straight-forward result, but in this season of uncertainty nothing can be taken for granted. The Giants sit atop the AFL ladder for the first time and have defeated the Blues in their past four encounters. But there has been a lot to like about Carlton leading up to last week’s bye, despite losing its past three games. The Blues’ gutsy performances bely their 17th placing – their experienced players are playing well and their youngsters are improving rapidly. A depleted Greater Western Sydney has manufactured several close victories with four of its past five wins by under 10 points. Although ravaged by injury, the Giants still boast a deep and talented midfield and scoring power that is the envy of most. By contrast the Blues rely heavily on a few in their midfield and their attack is the least potent in the competition. But they’re bringing in Liam Jones this week so expect them to kick 30 goals.

Mottsy’s Tip: GWS by 30 points.

  3. I’m really enjoying this match. Would be more fun if my guys were scoring better, but at least a good match so far.

    Trying to keep off the computer during the match and miss the game because of score checking.

    1. Seems to be everywhere – seen him at centres bounces, forward pocket, half back.. just not seeing any of it.

    1. How long is it before coaches wake up and put a defensive forward on him? He sets up so much of the play for the Blues

      1. Only when Carlton actually become a threat, this game not withstanding.

        And Liam Jones has done enough for another 2 year contract. Just when blues supporters were thought they were rid of him!
