AFL: GIANTS MAKING A BIG NOISE

THE big sound from the West Side of Sydney town could be building to its biggest-ever crescendo judging by their win against Port Adelaide in the semi-final last week.

The Giants’ second quarter display against the Power was the best football they have played this season and close to the best any team has played.

They played a fast chaotic brand similar to what Richmond played during their recent successful era.

They have nominally the best player in the competition in Toby Greene and a host of top players such as Tom Green, Steve Coniglio, Lachie Whitfield plus an in-form forward line led by Jesse Hogan.

They play the AFL’s top side Collingwood in the Preliminary Final at the MCG. 

The last time they played in a Preliminary Final was in 2019 when the Giants won by four points.
Collingwood get Nick Daicos back which will be a big help. They had a fortuitous win against Melbourne in the Qualifying Final. Also, they will have played one match in almost a month which could be a factor against them.

Collingwood is a $1.50 to win with PlayUp and the Giants are $2.60.

Brisbane has the advantage of playing Carlton at the Gabba in the other Preliminary Final, a ground they haven’t lost at this year. The Blues have been courageous but this looks a bridge too far for them.

This is reflected in the odds with Brisbane at $1.36 and the Blues at $3.15.
