Game notes: Pre-season flag favourites Greater Western Sydney rebounded from a round one savaging against Adelaide to do the same to struggling Gold Coast on Saturday. Dylan Shiel, Callan Ward and Josh Kelly (again) were red-hot for the Giants, who got six goals out of Jeremy Cameron in Jonathon Patton’s absence. Patton should be back to face the Roos. North Melbourne suffered defeat for the second straight match despite showing promising signs – and leading by as many as 32 points over Geelong. The Cats’ five-goal-to-one last term saw them pip the Kangaroos by a point on Sunday, spoiling strong displays from Shaun Higgins, Ben Cunnington, Robbie Tarrant and Braydon Preuss. Brad Scott’s men should be buoyed by their impressive record in Tasmania and against GWS in general.
Thommo’s Tip: GWS by 30 points
