The Giants are just one of two sides with a 1-1 record and head down to Tasmania to take on a North side who will still be stinging from their defeat to Geelong last week.

North will welcome back gun ruckman Todd Goldstein while key defender Scott Thompson will miss through suspension which may cause concern for Brad Scott as Jonathon Patton could return to join an inform Jeremy Cameron up forward.

Ed Vickers-Willis and Sam Durdin are in line to replace Thompson while Scott must also determine whether or not to play two ruckman after Braydon Preuss was impressive against Geelong.

GWS were impressive against Gold Coast last week and had ball-winners all over the park as Cameron and Toby Greene combined for 11 goals. Will Setterfield could be a chance to make his AFL debut after a strong showing in the NEAFL.

While North were good last week, GWS look to have been played into some form and look the goods to get the chocolates at North’s home away from home.

Giants by 22.
