The GWS Giants arrive for this one on the back of a 92-80 loss to the St Kilda Saints that saw them make it three defeats on the bounce and another beckons.

Head to Head

The Cats easily beat the Giants 88-35 when the two last met in 2022 with this making it two wins in a row for Geelong. 

In their last 10, the Cats have won five times, while the Giants have won four games and there has been one draw. 

Geelong Cats Form

Geelong were really disappointing in their last two matches as they have fallen to two defeats in as many games after falling at the hands of the Richmond Tigers and Fremantle Dockers. 

Both defeats came to sides below them on the ladder, and this poor run has left the reigning premiers sitting in seventh on the ladder with just over half of the points tally of Collingwood at the top. 

Geelong Cats Team News

Geelong are still without skipper Patrick Dangerfield, while Max Holmes underwent surgery recently and Cam Guthrie and Gary Rohan are still out with injuries.

Sam Simpson is rested and Mitchell Knevitt and Oliver Dempsey are omitted.

In come Irish recruit Oisin Mullin for his debut, Sam De Koning and Ollie Henry, who is fit again.

In more positive news, Gary Rohan and Sam De Koning could feature this week.

GWS Giants Form 

The GWS Giants have failed to ever really get things going this year, with the side now on a three-game losing run that has seen them beaten by the Western Bulldogs, Collingwood Magpies and St Kilda Saints. 

While all three matches were played against sides in the upper part of the ladder, it will disappoint them that they were able to take nothing away from the trio of matches as their season goes from bad to worse. 

The Giants also arrive for this one with three defeats in four away games.

GWS Giants Team News

The Giants are without Josh Kelly due to a calf injury, while Harry Himmelberg and Nick Haynes (both concussion) are missing. 

Callum Brown, Lachie Keeffe and Daniel Lloyd all come in.

While the Cats have not been particularly good in their last two, I am backing them to avoid making it three defeats in a row by easily putting the Giants away.
