GWS Giants and Melbourne Demons meet in a game that is do or die to their finals hopes of both. Eighth spot the ladder is up for grabs for the winner at the Gabba on Saturday.

GWS Giants Form


GWS Giants lost hard to Adelaide Crows last week in what was one of the most disappointing performances we have seen from the club over their lifetime.

Given the inconsistency of GWS, we can expect a better performance off a dismal loss to Adelaide last week.

GWS Giants Team News


Big news coming from the Giants is that skipper Stephen Coniglio has been dropped from the side after not playing up to his hefty standards that we know he is capable of.

Josh Kelly will come back into the Giants line-up and be the perfect replacement for the skipper.

Melbourne Demons Form


Melbourne need another win or their Finals hopes for 2020 are over. The Dees have lost two in a row but can remain in the Finals picture with a win in what is a do or die match for both sides.

They needed to beat Fremantle last week which they could not do, and a loss the previous week to Sydney will have sapped confidence in the Dees camp.

They are a side that can bounce back unexpectedly, and against another inconsistent side like the Giants, they are right in the match.
