GWS vs Port Adelaide Preview

The Giants crept back into the eight with a huge four points against the Bombers.

GWS’s efforts in the second half when the game was up for grabs was superb. They managed to control the game with a slow uncontested marking game and frustrated the Bombers to limit them to a mere one goal in the entire second half.

Although Lachie Whitfield has been starting matches on the wing in recent weeks, I believe he will be moved back into his best half-back role, being superb after he was moved back there during the game against the Bombers.

It looks like they have opted for height in attack, with Jesse Hogan, Harry Himmelberg and possibly Jeremy Finlayson in the line-up. Toby Greene is also a welcome return into the forward line mix.

Meanwhile, the Power avoided multiple scares to come away with a comfortable 28-point victory.

Collingwood took it to Ken Hinkley’s side for the majority of the first half and threatened to cause a major upset. However, Port Adelaide was resilient and managed to hold onto their spot in the top four.

The upcoming match will be won by the side, who is better in the middle of the ground on the day. Ollie Wines, Travis Boak and Karl Amon have been exceptional all season, but the Giants have terrific midfield depth.

Despite Port Adelaide being in the top four and in strong form, it is still a hard match to predict because on their day the Giants can run over the top of them. However, I’ll stick with the Power in this one.
