AFL Live GWS Giants vs Essendon Bombers Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 10 match will be kick off at Spotless Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park, Australia, Saturday 26 May 2018 online, 19:25 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Saturday night AFL action sees the GWS Giants play host to the Essendon Bombers at Spotless Stadium.
The Round 10 encounter pits the placed 11th placed Giants up against the Dons, who are currently 14th on the ladder and first bounce is at 7.25PM. All the action can be seen on Channel 7 and Fox Footy.
The two sides have endured their struggles in recent weeks. GWS have dropped three games in a row for the first time since 2015 and the pre-season flag fancies are out of the eight for the first time this year. They have four wins and a draw to their credit.
In Round 9, the Giants went down to North Melbourne by 43 points. On the same day, Essendon breathed life into their season by upsetting Geelong by 34. The Bombers snapped a four game losing streak in the process and now have three wins.
A victory is vital for both sides finals aspirations. The Giants head in as favourites on the back of the home ground advantage but continue to be without a number of their key players.
Consistency has been an issue in recent times for the expansion club, as has their output in front of goal. They have averaged just eight goals per game in the past five weeks and inaccuracy has cost them at vital times.
Despite this, the Giants should be hard to beat if they can string together four quarters. Statistically, they match up well against Essendon and Dylan Shiel, Stephen Coniglio and Jacob Hopper head in with fine form.
Essendon will need big games from a host of players that stood up last weekend, including Zach Merrett, Dyson Heppell. Jake Stringer and Cale Hooker. In the absence of Joe Daniher, Shaun McKernan and Orazio Fantasia loom as keys in front of goal. That pair combined for six goals in the win over the Cats last weekend.
