Big 1st game to start off with for 2021 against the Saints in what will be a HUGE season for the Giants in it's 10th year

Promising signs last weekend against the Swans but will be hoping for another sunny day

Injury Update

Early prognosis
Keeffe
hobbled from the field late in Sunday's win over Sydney, but the early diagnosis is positive. He will be monitored but is expected to be fine for the opening round against St Kilda, as are Flynn and Daniels after recent setbacks. Whitfield is still at least a month away from a return as he battles a bruised liver suffered at training in early February. - Michael Whiting

Saints team that played last weekend ;

Injury Update

Early prognosis
Frawley
has been ruled out for at least eight weeks after damaging his hamstring tendon in the AAMI Community Series win over Carlton. The Saints will be cautious with the veteran who injured the same hamstring earlier in the pre-season. Hannebery will miss the season opener against Greater Western Sydney having not done enough conditioning due to a nagging calf injury but the Saints are confident he'll feature early. Jones will attempt to hit full speed running this week to put his hand up for the Giants and Marshall is nearing a return to running in the hope he can play inside the first month. Geary is progressing strongly from a fractured fibula sustained in late January. - Mitch Cleary
Updated: Tuesday, March 9


Also Brad Crouch and Ryder will be out

Was looking forward to this but under the covid rules I believe we're all meant to be sitting in our assigned seats? Ours are one row away from being undercover so usually we swap to a GA area in the rain.

Cant see it happening, not sure the year but the Suns/Swans game from a few years ago was played in incredibly wet conditions and I think I remember a game played in fog/rain where it was hard for the coaches to see either end of the ground (Maybe the same game)
And a giants game played in snow of course haha

No Finlayson is a surprise to me but maybe the coaches need him to work on his game
I hope he hasn’t said he wants out. He has been a star for us and I just can’t see why is is out of favour at the moment. He is not injured

One tall forward... I guess it’s a team for the conditions?
100% this

I’m actually really pleased. In previous years I have felt LC to be very very rigid in “sticking to his structures” and having no flexibility. We would have gone way to talk in the past.

Today we load with small and bang it long and watch Greene and Bruhn kick 4 each

and given we sit a row in front of you... and there are all sorts of road closures to even get to the ground....

I really want to go, but...

I agree. Huge potential.
I like to think the club (new forwards coach) has told him to fix his attitude or not play. The criticism of teammates when making substandard efforts himself was at a new level last year.
When he’s switched on he can beat anyone.

If anyone is trying to make the decision whether to come or not. I just got here, no rain at all, it’s pleasant in temperature and there were no road closures at all near the ground anymore

Get on down here and support

Go Giants

What's the surface like?
When I went for a kick with the boys in their warmup it seemed pretty good

Hehe. Just kidding

Looks good mate. This ground always drains pretty well to be fair

No puddles at all and nothing really been on to tear it up
