Game notes: Probably the match of the round, this clash between fierce adversaries has plenty riding on the outcome. The Giants returned to form by dismantling Melbourne, and in doing so, enhanced their chances of finishing in the top four after just recording one win in their previous five matches. The loss of Shane Mumford to suspension is big blow, but the return of star forward Toby Greene from a two-week ban is a huge inclusion. After a stuttering start to their premiership defence, the Bulldogs have finally found something close to their best form by winning four games on the trot. Needing to win at least two of their remaining three games to qualify for the finals, the Dogs are back to their manic best around the contest and have superstar Marcus Bontempelli back in devastating form. The match looms as another classic in the clubs’ growing rivalry.
Thommo’s Tip: Doggies by 11 points.
