GWS have hit the wall. Their scoring is down and when you dive into the stats there are clear correlations between their scoring slump with below average numbers for Inside 50’s, Efficiency coupled with an abnormally high Turnover Rate. 

The good thing for Giants fans though is that these things are able to be corrected with good coaching and application on the field which is what GWS are good at. The question is just whether it happens this week or next. 

With Port Adelaide having shocking Accuracy in front of Goal this season I am backing the ghosts to once again haunt the forwards and smother the momentum forward allowing the Giants to take their opportunities.

  • Port Adelaide have the worst Accuracy Rate of any team in the league at 44%
  • GWS are a strong passing team and are 6th best in the league at going the length of the field and scoring from Kick Ins. 
  • The Power allow the second most amount of Scores from Kick Ins in the AFL
  • 7 of the last 10 games combined for these two teams have gone Under the Game Total

Head to Head 


Since the beginning of the 2019 season these two teams have met in 5 regular season matchups and one post-season game with GWS winning the Semi Final last season 90-73, a game that went Under the Game Total.

Through the previous 5 regular season games Port Adelaide hold a 4-1 advantage in straight up victories as well as a 4-1 ATS record. The Game Total has gone Under on 3 occasions with the Winning Margin being between 1-39 in 3 of the 5 games played in that period.

The Giants are clinging to their top 8 spot by the skin of their teeth following an upset loss to the Hawks last weekend. They have now lost 4 of their last 5 with scoreboard pressure having dried up totally. 

Through their last 5 the Giants have been unable to score more than 79 points which is a stark contrast to their first 7 games of the season where they averaged 107 points per game.

Josh Kelly is in the squad but will probably be given until closer to game day to prove how fit he is following a calf injury, he could still drop off the extended bench. 

Jack Buckley is also named on the interchange as he also returns from a calf complaint.

Port Adelaide’s 3 game win streak was shattered last weekend as the Blues ran away with the game in the 4th quarter to take a 6 goal victory.

It was the second biggest loss for the Power this season, their biggest (42) against the Pies in round 6. The similarities in the two games being the reduced amount of possession for Port leading to significantly less scoring opportunities.

Charlie Dixon and Jeremy Finlayson have both been left out of the squad and will line up in the SANFL for the Magpies.

The extended bench will be cut closer to game time with the players who miss out not eligible for SANFL this week either.
