Game Chat – GWS vs Adelaide

Written by Huttabito on August 11 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: UNSW Oval, Saturday, August 11, 7.25pm AEST

The Crows kept their slim finals hopes alive with their Showdown victory over Port, but they face a huge task against the Giants who have rarely been beaten in Canberra in recent years. The amount of midfield talent on show in this clash is ridiculous, with Josh Kelly, Stephen Coniglio, Callan Ward in sublime touch for the home side, and Matt Crouch, Bryce Gibbs and Rory Sloane winning plenty of footy for Adelaide. How much the always emotional Showdown took out of the Crows will be interesting to see, while in contrast, injuries hit GWS again in last week’s ‘training run’ against the struggling Blues. Adelaide’s forward line has plenty of scoring ability in Taylor Walker, Josh Jenkins, Eddie Betts and Tom Lynch, but the Giants’ defence is ranked third in the competition for points against, and led by Phil Davis, they’ve become a tough unit to crack. A loss for the Crows will end their season and keep the Giants sitting pretty in the top four, so there’s a lot on the line in this one.

R11, 2018, Giants 14.13 (97) d Adelaide 11.15 (81) at Adelaide Oval

R8, 2015, Giants 16.12 (108) d Adelaide 12.12 (84) at Spotless

Hutta’s Tip: GWS by 20 points.

 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.
