Game Notes: The Giants won their first match against the Hawks in this corresponding fixture last season, Round 6. With two consecutive wins, GWS will enter this one with their tails wagging, wanting to prove they can knock off quality opposition in their quest for a first finals appearance in their short history. The Hawks have won their last three matches, but only by three points each. They know how to win, but haven’t been overly convincing except for the belting of the Eagles on home soil in R2.

The 6 Points

1. Jeremy Cameron’s seven goals was the difference when the Giants upset Hawthorn in 2015; Callan Ward had 31 disposals for GWS and Sam Mitchell 34 touches for the visitors.

2. Hawthorn won the first game between the sides by a massive 162 points in 2012, the second by 83, the third by seven points, before the Giants finally won last year.

3. The Hawks continue to be the number one tackling side in 2016 averaging 84.4 per game, compared to the Giants who are the worst, ranked 18th at 59.4 per game.

4. GWS plays its first game at Spotless Stadium in 2016 this week; the Giants won six of eight games at the ground in 2015 after winning only five games in total at the venue in 2012-14.

5. Despite winning four games this year, the Hawks’ scoring continues to be down on previous seasons; in 2016 they’re averaging 95 points per game compared to 109 in 2015 and 111 in 2014.

6. The Hawks small forwards, Cyril Rioli and Paul Puopolo kicked 9 goals between them last week.
MJ’s tip: Giants by 14

    1. It’s early days yet Bazza. They have time to recover this season and if they don’t look out for us to steal a gun from another team!
