When and Where: Kardinia Park at 7:50pm AEST
Greater Western Sydney will head to Geelong with confidence after the fortress took a hit at the hands of Sydney last week. The Swans knocked off the Cats for the third consecutive time – the only travelling club to have won at the venue since 2015 – while the Giants’ record is less imposing. Three visits have resulted in an average losing margin of 40 points and to overturn it, the Giants will have to do so without their most dangerous forwards, Jeremy Cameron and Toby Greene, as well as resurgent defender Brett Deledio. B&F Josh Kelly and ruckman Rory Lobb are also missing. The Cats were run off their feet by Sydney’s makeshift forward set-up last week and will need to contend with a new-look Giants attack. How Geelong’s midfield responds to its final term battering will be intriguing – facing up against in-form onballers Dylan Shiel, Tim Taranto and Stephen Coniglio.
