THE TEAM NEWS

GWS GIANTS

  • GWS Giants’ poor start to the season continued as they lost for the second game in succession with Western Bulldogs getting the better of them in a fiery contest last week.
  • The Giants were limited to just 33 points in another very poor display and they need to make big improvements as in this game with Collingwood but will hope to achieve that having made sweeping changes to their side.
  • Four players have been dropped from last week’s clash with Daniel Lloyd, Jye Caldwell, Sam Jacobs and Zac Langdon all finding themselves on the sidelines with Josh Kelly, Shane Mumford, Toby Greene and Tom Green taking their places.

COLLINGWOOD

  • Collingwood maintained their unbeaten start to the season as they collected their second win of the campaign with a dominant showing at home to St. Kilda and they will be confident of further success here.
  • The Magpies blew the Saints away in the first half to lead 64-26 at the break and despite taking their foot off the gas in the second half, they were still comfortable victors.
  • After such an impressive performance, it is little surprise that the Magpies have not made too many changes to their side this week with Mason Cox coming in for Darcy Cameron in the only alteration.

THE PREDICTION

GWS Giants would have been hoping to build on their maiden Grand Final appearance in 2019 but they have started this year in poor form. They were dreadful last week as they mustered just 33 points in their defeat to Western Bulldogs and they now face another tough task as they host Collingwood. The Magpies come into this as one of just two unbeaten teams after three matches and they should be able to maintain that record with another win here.
