Head to Head

GWS have a stranglehold over Essendon in their recent encounters, taking out four of their last five clashes.

Their last match in July of last year saw GWS win by 13 points at Metricon Stadium.

GWS Giants Form

It has been a very poor season from the Giants, mixed results all around and guaranteed to finish in the bottom quarter of the ladder.

They have lost each of their last four matches, with the worst being last week's demoralising defeat in the Sydney Derby by 27 points.

No doubt they will be out to prove a point this week, but still it is near impossible to see them winning based off this form.

GWS Giants Team News

GWS make four changes as Stephen Coniglio, Lachlan Keeffe, Kieren Briggs and Jake Riccardi come into the side.

Jacob Wehr is out with a calf injury while Lachie Ash, Callum Brown and Xavier O’Halloran are dropped.

Essendon Bombers Form

The Bombers are showing some better signs having won five of their last seven games, but they managed only two wins prior to this run.

They have had the better of Sydney Swans, Brisbane Lions, Gold Coast Suns and North Melbourne in recent weeks, three of which are very good sides.
