Preview

The Giants have a rung of players injured, however, still managed to get over the line against West Coast at Domain Stadium. They showed real toughness against the Eagles, and will look to bring that in to this match-up.

Essendon have shown some real promise, with Joe Daniher beginning to prove himself as a real match-winner. However, facing GWS at Spotless is always a difficult task.

If the Giants can limit Daniher, and force the likes of Cale Hooker and James Stewart to be the main goalscorers, they will go a long way to winning this game. Expect GWS to get over the line and make it three straight wins against the Bombers.

Tip: Giants by 31
