WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium, Sunday, August 5, 1.10pm AEST
Carlton is coming off its second victory for the season but faces a different challenge altogether when it hosts Greater Western Sydney at Etihad Stadium on Sunday. The Giants are among the most in-form teams in the competition, winning seven of their last eight games. The visitors will also welcome back Jeremy Cameron, who has served his five-match suspension and will be raring to go. The return of Josh Kelly and Toby Greene has reinvigorated Leon Cameron’s side, which is suddenly back in premiership contention. Patrick Cripps has been in superb form and was again brilliant last week but will have his hands full dealing with one of the deepest midfield groups in the competition. Brett Deledio’s impact since returning adds another layer of quality that Carlton will have to deal with at Etihad Stadium, making a repeat of the side’s 2017 upset against GWS difficult to foresee.
