WHERE AND WHEN: Spotless Stadium, Saturday, July 28, 4.35pm AEST
Greater Western Sydney’s early season form slump started with a draw against the Saints in round five, but Leon Cameron’s team is almost unrecognisable from that disappointing game at Etihad Stadium. Josh Kelly, Toby Greene, Brett Deledio and Adam Kennedy have returned to the senior side from long-term injuries and have been influential in helping the Giants win six of their past seven games. St Kilda’s scoring continues to be a worry with Jade Gresham (30) and Tim Membrey (23) the only two players with more than 13 goals this season, and with Phil Davis and Heath Shaw leading a miserly Giants defence, both will need more assistance. The Giants are coming off a tough match against Port Adelaide on the road and off a six-day break, so the Saints might give themselves a chance to start well and cause an upset. With positions inside the top eight extremely tight with five rounds remaining, St Kilda will be keen to cause some headaches on the run home.
