Last time we met
GWS 90 d Collingwood 60 (Round 4, 2021)
Toby Greene booted five goals and steered his side to a 30-point win at a slippery MCG. Collingwood narrowed the margin to 10 points by the final term but the Giants held on. Beau McCreery joined the first kick, first goal club in only his second AFL game.
Brayden Maynard v Toby Greene
Maynard's milestone game arrives after he produced his best performance so far this season before the bye - he finished with 25 disposals, 12 intercepts and 11 contested possessions against the Dees. Greene is capable of being a match-winner and averages 15 disposals, three goals and five marks a game.
Tom Green v Nick Daicos
Two outstanding young mids who might not play directly opposite each other on Sunday but will both have a massive impact if they produce their best footy. Green is averaging 27 disposals and six clearances a game this year, while Daicos is currently a deserved favourite to take out the NAB Rising Star and his stats are elite. He averages 25 disposals and five marks a game.
Look out for
Nathan Murphy has been in superb form since his return from injury - expect him to be a key contributor down back again this week.
