Game notes: With these two teams separated in fourth and fifth spot on the ladder by just percentage, this Canberra clash is shaping as a cracker. The Giants have lost Ryan Griffen to injury, but the Power will also be undermanned after ruckman Paddy Ryder was suspended for his late brain fade in last week’s Showdown. GWS belted Port by 86 points at the same venue in the corresponding round last year, but Ken Hinkley’s side have a different look about them in 2017, and will no doubt be keen to keep their position in the top four. Ollie Wines, Travis Boak and Brad Ebert have been in stunning form so far this season, but Josh Kelly, Dylan Shiel and Callan Ward have been outstanding for the Giants, so the midfield battle will be worth the price of admission alone.
Thommo’s Tip: GWS by 4-5 goals.
