It is a 2019 AFL Grand Final rematch this Friday night as GWS hosts Richmond at Giants Stadium.

The Giants were defeated last week by an improved Brisbane Lions but were far from disgraced against one of the better teams of the competition. The Tigers come into the game following a dominant win over the Kangaroos and should brimming with confidence.

This game is sure to be tight, but the recent records may sit in the Giants' favour.

GWS Form & Team News

After a solid game against the Lions, the Giants should not have lost any confidence in their brand of footy.

Taking on the reigning premiers in Richmond is no easy feat, but with the home side winning each of the last 10 matches between both sides, the odds do sit in their favour to bounce back to a win here.

Matt de Boer will look to negate the impact likely to line up on Dustin Martin who will be aiming to have a huge influence on the game.

Richmond Form & Team News

Finally in form and looking ready to impact this season, the Tigers easily defeated North Melbourne last week by nine goals. Richmond are rolling now and are building towards forcing their way back into the top-two.

Defender David Astbury is likely to return to this side this week, but skipper Trent Cotchin will miss one more week with his hamstring injury.

GWS vs Richmond Match Up

The key match up in this game could well be between Matt de Boer and Dustin Martin in the middle of the ground.

Matt de Boer minimised Lachie Neale's influence on the game last week, and he will need to do so again this week to stop Dusty.

If Martin can gain clearances and get his hands on the footy early, he may be too hard to stop when going forward.

de Boer proved he can match it with the best midfielder in the league, so he is well and truly capable of helping his team over the line here.
