Game Chat – Giants vs Eagles

Written by Schwarzwalder on August 19 2017

VENUE: Spotless Stadium, Saturday, August 19, 4.35pm AEST



R10, 2017, GWS 14.14 (98) d West Coast 14.6 (90) at Domain Stadium
R21, 2016, West Coast 14.13 (97) d GWS 14.12 (96) at Spotless Stadium
R5, 2015, West Coast 18.12 (120) d GWS 4.9 (33) at Domain Stadium
R8, 2014, West Coast  30.8 (188) d GWS 12.5 (77) at Domain Stadium
R9, 2013, West Coast 23.17 (155) d GWS 8.7 (55) at Spotless Stadium



These two teams enter round 22 in vastly different form, with the Giants belting the wasteful Western Bulldogs and the Eagles struggling to shake off a determined Carlton last week. Eagles spearhead Josh Kennedy has dined out on weaker opponents since his return in round 17, but he’ll have a tough job against a miserly GWS backline led by Phil Davis. It’s hard to see how the visitors will contain the power running of the Giants midfield, with Dylan Shiel, Josh Kelly, Stephen Coniglio and Tom Scully all in great touch, and if they can continue to have an influence key forward target Jonathon Patton is likely to get plenty of scoring opportunities. West Coast enter the round inside the eight and have so much to play for, but they’ve struggled to step up in the big moments this season, so it remains to be seen if they’re ready to do so on SaSpotless Stadium, Saturday, August 19, 4.35pm AEST


Schwarzwalder’s Tip: Giants by 38pts


While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

      1. I am with you Yiorgi except i ran with Witherden. It worked benching Shaw the 1st week of Finals , but not when he pumps out 104 and just his 3rd ton of the year.

        If the Bont was not enough as a POD up against Sloane in 2 match ups. Can sense Mad Monday barring a miracle from here.
        Facing an uphill battle in all my 5 Prelims


        1. Every time TDA. Every time. With Glass a late in, I am now playing Withers and Ryan, with Shaw and Lloyd stuck on the bench. They’ll both spud it up. When my opponents depend on Ryan/Withers they ton up. When I depended on them they coughed up a 32 and 60 odd.


  2. Bontempelli’s magnificent score of 45 means that The Salamander needs a captain.

    1. Z Merrett:
      2017 Interstate Avg: 124.8 from 5 (low of 112 and a high of 141, 3/5 120+)
      2017 Night Avg: 122.25 from 8 (low of 87 and a high of 141, 1/8 below 100, 6/8 120+)
      2017 Saturday Avg: 113.7 from 10 (low of 87 and a high of 137, 3/10 below 100, 4/10 120+)
      2017 Avg in Wins: 112.2 from 10 (low of 83 and a high of 137, 3/10 below 100, 4/10 120+)

      Low risk attached to Z Merrett:
      60% of 2017 Interstate games 120+
      75% of 2017 Night games 120+
      40% of 2017 Saturday games 120+
      40% of 2017 Wins 120+

      Chillo: “If I had Zerrett, I’d be strongly considering him for the C though. He’ll be running around Metricon by himself all night on Saturday, and he’ll be keen to pay his teammates back for that brain explosion against the Blues a couple of weeks ago.”

    1. Well there goes my plan of taking Dangers VC score as my Captain. NOT what I want in the prelim final – I think I’m screwed. Having to roll the dice now on Dusty or Fyfe tomorrow, or T Mitchell or Kreuzer tonight….GRRRR!


  4. In a spot of bother in SC prelims. Glass a late in means no Danger VC loophole (plus I miss Shaw’s redemption score after loopholing him for first time this season). That is unless I forego planned Lynch to Billings trade & take Deluca’s bench score.
    T/u – Skip Danger loophole mess, make Zerrett (or Dusty/Fyfe) C.
    T/d – Loophole Danger, forego Lynch to Billings, take Deluca score

  6. You know what. F***k you Heater! Spend 22 weeks dealing with your mediocrity thinking you’ll eventually come good. Use my last trade to Savage at quarter time cause you were absolutely spudding it up again and potentially going to cost me the prelim. Then go on to score 103 for the first time in 14 weeks.

    I hate this game so much sometimes
