Game Chat – GWS v Essendon

Written by Motts on May 8 2021

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…

Motts Watch: 

GWS
Greene and Kelly (who apparently will be played more on the wing).

Essendon
Zerrett, Tippa, and Cox.

Mottsy’s Tip: GWS by 20 (tipping record 15/21).

    1. I understand how scaling works, but couldn’t follow how kelly,don’t have him, and greene , do have him went down in score after scaling. If they went down while those around them went up does it mean they were way way over what they should have been??

      1. Mostly because it was a close game, points went to players who came up big at the end. Hopper in particular got a massive boost

        1. Yep follow that chillo, just surprised they dropped points with 350 odd to come.
          Why would they lose points already allocated when there were plenty more to come?

          1. Yeah, it’s a good point. A bit more transparency from CD wouldn’t go astray every now and then

            1. This is worth a conversation chillo, some knob sitting at a desk takes 20 points off your team without any accountability and hands it to someone else. Only thing that shits me about SC.
