Game Chat – GWS vs Geelong

Written by Father Dougal on July 1 2017

Venue: Spotless Stadium, Saturday, July 1, 7.25pm AEST

Last Time They Met:ย R11, 2016, Geelong 14.14 (98) d GWS 14.4 (88) at Simonds Stadium
R2, 2016, GWS 13.11 (89) d Geelong 11.10 (76) at Manuka Oval
R17, 2015, Geelong 9.15 (69) d GWS 6.6 (42) at Manuka Oval
R18, 2014, Geelong 13.16 (94) d GWS 12.15 (87) at Spotless Stadium
R11, 2013, Geelong 24.13 (157) d GWS 15.8 (98) at Spotless Stadium


Game notes: This clash between two top-four sides is undoubtedly the pick of round 15 and could be a chance to break the attendance record of 13,766 for a non-Sydney derby at Spotless Stadium. The Giants bounced back from their shocker against Carlton before the bye with a clinical win over the Brisbane Lions last week, while Geelong was less than impressive in a tight one against Fremantle, but managed to get the points with an injury-hit line-up. If two of the game’s most explosive midfielders in Patrick Dangerfield and Dylan Shiel go head to head, the fans will be in for a treat. But there will be plenty of intrigue elsewhere in the midfield with Joel Selwood, Mitch Duncan and Cam Guthrie taking on Callan Ward, Lachie Whitfield and Tom Scully.

    1. Don’t mind me i will be just drinking away my sorrows, first Jelwood and now Greene with no cover


    2. Almost traded Lynch out this week for Billings/Greene but with Billings failing to train this week as has been sick and Greene doing his ankle at training yesterday I guess I can count my lucky stars.


  1. Actually traded in Greene this week for Hannen and Stewart, wish they told me sooner probably would’ve gone Macrae.Alas that’s Supercoach ! Dan Menzal also a late out ,not SC relevant thank God.


  2. My story worse gents … have just thrown away the Round of 16 in the Cup. Dog was sick last night and had to rush her to the vet specialists (50K away), had to make urgent trades and haven’t been up on injuries etc …

    Needed to make a move of Lloyd out of mids and into Def and bring in a mid, so went with JPK as was watching dollars as I also wanted to ditch Lynch after his last two weeks killing my scores … you guessed it, traded Lynch to Greene as well! Now no cover in fwds as all rookies not named and greenwood having to cover jelwood.

    Sick in the guts … and to cap it off Lynch picks today to score over 130 … cannot believe it!

    Still, the SC cup was fun while it lasted … Hired Goons (Mike) now to be the favourite for me!!


      1. thanks mate … OA will take a hit too … I really should have held trades in all areas … taken it as a sign … still, at least the dog looks like she will pull through (fingers crossed)


      1. thanks Chaos … she’s in the vet hospital, but got through the night and today, so they think she will get through … was bleeding internally and had a transfusion … tough little bugger!

  6. danger on fire in the last term – 11 of 13 disposals effective and 94 SuperCoach points. Fair player ๐Ÿ˜‰


  7. I wonder how many people planned to vc danger and lost their loophole with selwood and Greene late withdrawals. Certainly changed my strategy and put the c on danger right before game (phew)


  8. Last week I was chasing points after Gaz and Fyfe withdrawl so I took C off Danger
    and put it on Joel trying to win a few league games . This week I took a punt on Danger maybe having his once a year quiet one and put C on Pendles , 2 of 3
    opponents have C on Danger , I don’t think I am very smart! Still get his score I
