Game notes: The rematch of last year’s epic preliminary final at Spotless Stadium has been given the big stage of Friday night footy, just reward for two of this season’s flag favourites. The Giants head to Canberra with more momentum than the Bulldogs after winning their past four games, and they’re playing a far more consistent brand of footy than the premiers, who have had to fight extremely hard for their wins. GWS forwards Toby Greene (17 goals) and Jeremy Cameron (16) have started the year brilliantly, with Steve Johnson, Jonathon Patton, Rory Lobb and Devon Smith adding even more firepower, and if Dylan Shiel, Tom Scully, Callan Ward and Josh Kelly get too much room to move in the midfield, the Giants will be tough to beat. Their battle with Marcus Bontempelli, Luke Dahlhaus, Tom Liberatore and Jack Macrae will be a beauty.
Thommo’s Tip: Giants by 20 points.
