GWS were slow to get off the mark in season 2017, going down to Adelaide in Round 1, but they have responded in style by comfortably winning their last two matches.
They accounted for North Melbourne to the tune of 42 points in Round 3 and enjoyed big games from Josh Kelly, Callan Ward, Toby Greene and Jeremy Cameron.
Port Adelaide surprised many with their opening two weeks of football, registering impressive wins before being outclassed by local rival, Adelaide, in the Showdown last weekend by 17 points.
They are currently ahead of GWS on the ladder by percentage and little separates the two in a number of key statistical measures, including clearances and inside 50’s with both sides leading the way in these measures so far in 2017.
The difference may come down to the depth that the Giants enjoy at the moment. They have a stack of options up forward, while their midfield bats very deep.
While Port Adelaide have been excellent in these areas so far this year, they may just be a fraction reliant on Robbie Gray and Chad Wingard. Both were relatively quiet in the loss to the Crows.
The Power will also be without a couple of key players in Jack Hombsh and Patrick Ryder. The latter was suspended after a bit of a brainfade last weekend and the visitors will have to front up without their key big man against a Giants outfit with Shane Mumford feeding it to their host of onballers.
