GWS Giants Form & Team News

 
The Giants form since the season restart has been inconsistent, winning just twice from five games.

GWS was able to grind out a narrow victory over Collingwood a fortnight ago, but last week's loss to Port Adelaide was disappointing given they were in a winning position at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Former captain Callan Ward will miss the next month with a knee injury, but with reigning best and fairest winner Tim Taranto fit and ready to 

Daniel LIoyd will need to pass a concussion test to play this week, and Jye Caldwell looks the most likely to come in if he does miss.

Brisbane Lions Form & Team News

 
Brisbane were disappointing last week after giving up a five-goal lead to the Cats, but their form before that was excellent, winning four games in a row. 

Brownlow Medal fancy Lachie Neale and emerging on-baller Hugh McCluggage have been shining lights this season and will again be called upon to have a big impact against a formidable Giants midfield.

The Lions shouldn’t have any forced omissions this week, but the likes of Grant Birchall and Stefan Martin might be testing Chris Fagan’s patience.

FB: R. Lester, H. Andrews, D. Gardiner 
HB: D. Rich, G. Birchall, B. Starcevich 
C: M. Robinson, D. Zorko, H. McCluggage

The matches apart from that have been comfortable wins for the Giants, but we are expecting a much closer game on Saturday.

GWS Giants vs Brisbane Lions Match Up 


The league's best medium forward in Charlie Cameron up against gun defender Nick Haynes is one of the most fascinating match ups of round seven.

Cameron is fourth in the Coleman Medal, but his impact been negated somewhat in recent weeks, so look for him to come out firing on Saturday.

Haynes has stamped himself as the league's best medium sized defender, and will have Cameron covered in the air. Once the ball hits the ground however, the Lion live-wire will be hard to stop with his blistering leg speed.

This contest will go a long way to deciding the outcome of the match.
