Game Chat – Melbourne v Greater Western Sydney

Written by Father Dougal on August 26 2018

WHERE AND WHEN:ย MCG, Sunday, August 26, 3.20pm

SUMMARY
After Melbourne secured its long-awaited finals berth with a 17-point victory over West Coast last weekend, its match-up against the Giants could prove vital in determining the order of the top eight. A Demons loss could see the teams face off in week one of the finals at Spotless Stadium, while if Melbourne defeats GWS Simon Goodwin’s side could lock in a home final potentially against Geelong. Either team has the chance to push into the top four, should Fremantle cause an upset against Collingwood. The Giants could also finish in the top four if the Swans and Hawks draw and GWS makes up enough percentage points in the process. Needless to say, despite knowing they will feature in September, both GWS and Melbourne have plenty to play for.

LAST FIVE TIMES
R20, 2017, GWS Giants 14.13 (97) d Melbourne 10.2 (62) at UNSW Canberra Oval
R1, 2016, Melbourne 12.8 (80) d GWS Giants 10.18 (78) at the MCG
R23, 2015, Melbourne 15.13 (103) d GWS Giants 11.11 (77) at Etihad Stadium
R2, 2015, GWS Giants 15.11 (101) d Melbourne 8.8 (56) at UNSW Canberra Oval
R21, 2014, GWS Giants 15.8 (98) d Melbourne 3.16 (34) at the MCG

FD’s Tip:ย GWS by 10.

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we arenโ€™t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they havenโ€™t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

    1. Thanks Oliver, busy painting a spare bedroom today, and keeping a check of scores of course……looks like you very ballsy move of not taking Grundy’s 150 VC score and gambling on Grundy paid off, well done.

    Demons have a home final against the Geelong Cats
    GWS will be away to Sydney Swans.
    Both games are Elimination Finals. I think (hope) both will win ๐Ÿ˜‰
