WHERE AND WHEN: MCG, Saturday, March 31, 4.35pm AEST
For non-Victorian flag fancies, games at the MCG are like gold, and the Giants might well transform into Rumpelstiltskins at the MCG on Saturday. Their clash with a so-far underwhelming Collingwood will be the first of only two games the Giants will play at the MCG, with their next appearance not until the final round against Melbourne. In their short history, the Giants have won just one of their 12 games at the MCG, but the visitors appear primed to capitalise on this southern jaunt, given their white-hot form against the Western Bulldogs in round one, which was in contrast with the Magpies’ shambolic effort against Hawthorn. GWS boasts stars all over the field, particularly in the midfield and forward. The Pies will at least fancy their chances in the middle, but their chief issue has been using the ball to advantage.
