Where and when: Giants Stadium, 1:45pm (AEST)
Last time they met: R10, 2020: Essendon 8.7 (55) DEF BY GWS 8.11 (59) at Carrara.
Greater Western Sydney had trailed by 29 points when it sparked its dramatic fightback on Friday night, gradually reducing Essendon’s significant advantage before finishing with a late barrage to secure an all-important four-point win. Stephen Coniglio (26 disposals, one goal) and Tim Taranto (32 disposals, four clearances) were the key factors in the dramatic GWS turnaround, which displayed the type of mettle that catapulted the AFL’s newest expansion side to the Grand Final in 2019.
Match Preview: Essendon looks to be struggling a little at the moment having lost 3 of it’s last 4 while GWS are the opposite: they’ve got 3 wins from their last 4. On paper, given its being played in Blacktown, I reckon the 4 points will go to The Giants but Truck may have some tricks up his sleeve…
