Where and when: Manuka, 7:50pm (AEST)
Last time they met: R3 2020: Western Bulldogs 8.9 (57) DEF GWS 4.9 (33) at Marvel Stadium.
The Bulldogs physically dominated a Giants side that had embarrassed them last September, building the foundations for their 8.9 (57) to 4.9 (33) win on the back of fierce, hard-nosed footy that at times lacked polish but was never without effort and intensity. Harry Perryman (23 disposals, two goals) and Stephen Coniglio (24 disposals) fought valiantly, but the damage was done early as the Bulldogs scrapped to a 20-point lead at half-time and retained that advantage comfortably throughout the second half.
Match Preview: This match got a hell of a lot more interesting over the last couple of weeks with the Giants taking care of the Pies and then unexpectedly knocking off their cross town rivals last weekend. It means they come into the game with a bit of confidence which they’ll need against the 5-0 Dogs.
