AFL Live Carlton Blues vs GWS Giants Stream AFL 2017 Regular Seasons Round 12 match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Sunday 11 June 2017 online, 15:20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Carlton face one of their toughest tests for the year when they take on the ladder leaders, the GWS Giants, at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon, June 11.
The Round 12 clash gets underway at 3.20PM and will be broadcast on Fox Footy. AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
Carlton come into this fresh from the week off in Round 11 and have been posted as $5.25 underdogs in the head to head betting with CrownBet.
Brendan Bolton’s men have won just three of their 10 games to date but may be sneaky contenders at the price on offer.
With the exception of a blowout against Port Adelaide over a month ago, the Blues have generally been fairly competitive in their games and the Giants will need to make sure they don’t take their opposition lightly.
GWS have won nine of their 11 hitouts this season and are now a game clear on top of the AFL ladder. They come off a 16-point win over Essendon and have four on the trot. Interestingly, their last loss came at this venue and that was to St Kilda in Round 7.
The Giants have a list that is the envy of all sides in the competition. Faced with a number of injuries that would decimate most teams, they have ben able to tap into their extensive depth, rallying to win their last few games, despite missing a number of players.
One player that has stood up is Josh Kelly. The 22-year-old is into the fourth line of betting for the Brownlow and comes off 38 touches in the win over Essendon last weekend.
Carlton will need to watch the classy midfielder very closely, while Bolton will need to work out a way for his side to match the Giants at the clearances. GWS rank No.1 in this area, while the Blues are 17th and this could be decisive at Etihad.
Key players in the middle for the Blues include Patrick Cripps, Bryce Gibbs and Marc Murphy, who were all solid in the Blues last hitout, a 35-point loss to Fremantle before the break.
However, that trio will need more support from the Blues youngsters and they will need to find a way to get their forwards involved in the game.
Sam Petreski-Seton was held goalless in the recent loss but may have benefitted from the week off, while Levi Casboult will provide a solid target up forward. The maligned forward has been clunking them well and has booted 17.4 this year, a great return considering his woes in recent years.
