AFL Live GWS Giants vs Gold Coast Suns Stream AFL 2017 Seasons Round 02 match will be kick off at Spotless Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park, New South Wales, Australia, Saturday 01 April 2017 online, 16:35 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The G.W.S Giants and the Gold Coast Suns feature in AFL Round 2 action when they go head to head at Spotless Stadium in Sydney on Saturday April 1.
The Giants head in as firm favourites for the 4.35PM encounter and will be hard to beat despite their Round 1 effort against Adelaide.
Fox Sports will broadcast the game, while AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
G.W.S will be keen to make amends for a poor showing against Adelaide, who were lethal at the Adelaide Oval last weekend. The Giants went down by a 56-point margin to the Crows and were left licking their wounds.
They return to their home ground of Spotless Stadium and face a Gold Coast lineup that were also underwhelming in the season opener, going down as favourite’s to Brisbane by two points.
The Suns will need to get off to a much better start this time around, after conceding seven early goals to the Lions, before staging a comeback.
Their under-siege coach, Rodney Eade, will be imploring his troops to put a lot more pressure on their opposition and bring the likes of Tom Lynch into the game. The big forward kicked three goals last weekend and comes off a 2016 haul off 66 majors.
However, the task will be difficult for Lynch and company, with the Giants on the rebound. Dylan Shiel, Callan Ward, Ryan Griffen, Tom Scully and Josh Kelly provide a stack of depth in the middle of the ground, while Shane Mumford should also provide a huge advantage in the ruck.
The game at Spotless will be the Giants first at the venue for the year. They won six of nine at the Sydney suburban ground in 2016, including four by over 10 goals and a similar performance could be on the cards again this weekend.
