Game Chat – GWS vs Carlton

Written by Thommo on September 3 2020

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.

  1. So this probably isn’t the place to put this but I’m thinking about doing something sillyish
    I have 4 trades left
    Jarrod Berry named in the centre tomorrow and he tends to do well there (I think )

    Thinking go Macrae to Berry

    TU yeah give it a crack
    TD nah hold Macrae as he’ll be useful the last few rounds

  6. Is SPS done at Carlton?
    Sam Walsh (2nd year player and future captain material) had the opportunity to handball to SPS so he could kick inside 50, but decided he’d do it himself rather than suffer the disappointment of a certain turnover.
    SPS 1 kick, 2 handballs and a single tackle to 3qt.


      1. Whole site has crashed
        No more new subscriptions coming in
        To them it’s just costing money to run the site
        Watch how often there is issues now


  7. As it stands at R15, Lloyd is $165,600 more expensive than Haynes. As a coach without either, and with one defender left to upgrade next week (Noble), do I move heaven & earth to get Lloyd in? I have the cash to do a straight swap Noble to Haynes, whereas to get Lloyd, it needs to be 2 trades, and the 2nd one would have to be Draper who is still at R3. With Grundy on a bye next round, and without Draper, I’m running with just the one ruckman in Goldy. Admittedly it is still top 18 scorers so the ruck donut isn’t a major drama, but guess I’m trying to rationalize spending the extra money and the extra trade on Lloyd.

    TU: Get Lloyd. Just make it happen.
    TD: Get Haynes or Saad and bank the cash for the one last upgrade needed.

    Currently 4 trades remaining and still with either Riccardi/Mosquito at F6.
