Australian Football League Live Western Bulldogs vs GWS Giants Live Stream Free, AFL 2017 Seasons Week 21 Stream. Western Bulldogs vs GWS Giants match will be kickoff at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, VIC, Australia, Friday 11 August 2017 online, 19:50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Both sides head into this in winning form after taking out their respective Round 20 clashes. The Western Bulldogs made it four wins on the trot by grinding out a 14-point victory over Brisbane, while GWS were far too good for Melbourne, winning that encounter by 35.
The Giants have bounced back from a disappointing run a few weeks ago to win their last two and sit in second spot on the AFL ladder, while the Dogs are in seventh position.
Last year’s premiers are just clear of a host of sides that are trying to squeeze into the eight. A win here will just about seal their position but a loss may make it difficult with games against Port Adelaide and Hawthorn to follow.
A pleasing sign for Dogs fans has been their improved output up forward and their side has kicked over 100 points in the last three weeks. Jack Redpath and Liam Picked combined for six goals in the win over the Lions
The Bulldogs should also find their fair share of the football in the middle. They rank fourth in the competition for average disposals, with Luke Dahlhaus, Jack Macrae and Marcus Bontempelli among some of the big names that are finding plenty of it.
GWS rank slightly lower for average disposals this season but are the competition’s highest ranked clearance side. They also average more hitouts than any other side, but will have to do it without the injured Shane Mumford.
Josh Kelly, Stephen Coniglio, Tom Scully and Dylan Shiel are among some of the names that should ensure the contest against the Dogs will be a mouth-watering one.
The two sides met in Round 6 this year and that encounter went the way of the Giants by two points, as the Dogs were left to rue their inaccuracy. Toby Greene and Jonathan Patton scored some clutch goals late in that game, while Caleb Daniel and Marcus Bontempelli were amongst the best for the Dogs.
Five of the eight encounters between the two sides have gone the way of the Bulldogs, while there have been two games played at Etihad, with the ledger square at one win apiece.
The Dogs have won seven from nine at the venue this season, while the Giants have ventured to Etihad on two occasions in 2017 for losses to St Kilda and Carlton.
