The GWS Giants ended a run of two defeats in a row by humiliating the Essendon Bombers 162-36 in their last outing. 

Head to Head 

The Blues secured a 74-64 win over the Giants when the sides met back in April, with this their third win in a row over their opponents and fourth in their last 10. The Giants have won the other six meetings in this time. 

Carlton Form 

The Carlton Blues have been exceptionally good of late, with their nine-game winning run seeing them earmarked as the form side in the AFL. 

This streak is made even more impressive when taking into account their six-game losing run before this. While the Blues currently sit in fifth on the ladder, they will worry the sides at the top, with the outfit playing like a team possessed right now. 

All of the focus will be on keeping their winning run going, with the Blues just a few victories away from a stunning appearance in the Grand Final. 

Carlton Team News

The Blues see Docherty go out with an injury while Curnow is sub. The home side have brought in McGovern, Walsh, Cerra, Fogarty and Durdin.

GWS Giants Form 

The GWS Giants looked to be down and out with their hopes of making the top eight in the AFL in tatters after losing to the Sydney Swans and Port Adelaide Power. 

However, their 162-36 humiliation of the Essendon Bombers has suddenly breathed new life into their campaign, with the side currently sitting in eighth on the ladder with 48 points. 

The major worry for the Giants is that they are playing the form team in the AFL on the road,  while the Western Bulldogs and Essendon Bombers are right behind them on the ladder. A win here is vital to their hopes of playing some part in the finals this year.

The Giants bring Angwin, Haynes and Flynn in for this must-win game.

I am backing the Blues to humble the Giants and extend their incredible winning run heading into the finals.
