Greater Western Sydney Giants vs Geelong Cats Preview
One team looking to make amends and the other looking to avoid a hangover – what more could you want?
The Giants will understand how important a win is here as they look to put their horror Grand Final loss behind them.
Likewise, Geelong has plenty of lost time to make up for after losing to the Tigers in the Prelim, setting up what should be a cracking game between two flag contenders.
The Giants got the better of the Cats when they met in Round 4 last year with a four-point victory, but the whole “behind closed doors” thing makes this one of the trickiest games to predict.
Ordinarily, you’d feel pretty confident in backing GWS at home, but there isn’t much of a home-field advantage here.
Instead, this game should be a real arm wrestle between the Geelong backline and the GWS forward line, as well as a fairly even battle through the midfield.
With that in mind, and the fact the last four games between these two have all gone Under, take this one to be low scoring.
