Game Notes: The expectations couldn’t be higher for the Giants after they fell short in one of the great preliminary finals last year to the eventual premiers. It is no wonder Leon Cameron’s men are flag favourites. Their midfield is brimming with elite talent, Jeremy Cameron, Jonathon Patton and Rory Lobb are a three-headed monster in attack and Heath Shaw and Zac Williams provide great run and carry out of defence. Injured trio Stephen Coniglio, Brett Deledio and Aidan Corr are big losses, but the Crows have their own concerns for the season opener. Star midfielder Rory Sloane, captain Taylor Walker and defender Jake Lever are touch and go, while Brad Crouch, Scott Thompson and Paul Seedsman will need to build match fitness before they can return. The Crows have a potent attack, but will need their young midfielders to step up if they’re going to get off to a winning start in 2017.
