Over the past 10 clashes, the head to head stands at 5-5.

GWS Giants upset the Cats in Geelong last week, with the 84-65 victory moving them back into the top eight.

It was a second win in the last three games having also beaten Essendon Bombers. The Giants' fate is now in their own hands with a win over Richmond potentially enough to sew up a finals spot.

Toby Greene is suspended and Brent Daniels, Callum Brown and Matt Buntine are all out with injuries. They join Phil Davis, Stephen Coniglio, Sam Reid, Bobby Hill and Jeremy Finlayson on the sidelines.
