Where and When: Metricon Stadium, Thursday 3 September 7:10pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Rd 9: Giants Stadium, GWS 20.18 (138) def Carlton 7.3 (45)
Match Preview: The Giants looked like they gave a stuff for the first time in weeks in their match against Fremantle last round. When they are going well they are a talented, scary prospect but they just don’t turn up most weeks. And if they don’t turn up tonight, the Blues are exactly the type of team who can steal a win and keep their mathematical chance of finals alive. However, even with Kelly out with a mummified face, that won’t happen if the Blues play like they did against the Pies!
SC Watch: For the Giants, Coniglio surely has to go large with Kelly and Ward out. A few coaches are also rocking Haynes and Williams down back and many happy coaches have beast-mode Whitfield and Jake Riccardi.
For Carlton, Docherty returned to some form last week but unfortunately Cripps is carrying a knee injury. Does anyone have any spare trades?
Thommo Watch: Cripps is on his last chance for Thommo’s Tribe. If he looks sore he will be departing after this week.
Thommo’s Tip: Giants by 12 points.
