GWS vs Western Bulldogs Preview

The Giants won their second match of the season against hometown rivals Sydney at the SCG.

GWS had to start hitting form sooner rather than later if they want to reach their ambitions of playing finals this season, but two wins on the trot have seen them move up into 12th spot.

Leon Cameron’s side has to control the middle of the ground if they are of any chance to win, easier said than done with the Dogs possessing the best midfield in the competition.

Meanwhile, the Western Bulldogs continued their incredible start to the season, with a 62-point thumping over the Suns.

The Dogs started the game superbly against the Suns as they have all season, kicking the first 11 goals of the game to have a 70-9 lead at the main break. The Giants have started games poorly this season, so the Dogs could hold a handy lead early on.

The last time the Bulldogs started the season 5-0, was 75 years ago. They’ve put themselves in a strong position to finish in the top four with wins over Collingwood (16 points), West Coast (seven points), North Melbourne (128 points), Brisbane (19 points) and Gold Coast (62 points).

Although the Giants have the home advantage, I believe the Dogs are playing too good at the moment and should claim the four points to maintain their undefeated status.

Giants vs Dogs Team News

The Giants will need to make at least one change with Sam Reid injuring his hamstring. Harry Perryman will likely return from Glandular fever. 

The Dogs will most likely need to make a couple changes with injuries to Laitham Vandermeer and Bailey Williams, Pat Lipinski and Caleb Daniel will be the likely inclusions.

The two sides last met in Round 3 last season which saw the Dogs win by 24 points.
