The stablemate Alward just got home two starts ago when the well-backed favourite. The Giants faced a sudden death clash against the Eagles after dropping their opening finals encounter to Adelaide by 36 points. The expansion club venture down from NSW to play in their first ever final at the MCG but should head in with plenty of confidence after finding what may be the right formula to challenge Richmond. After being criticised for being a tad too top heavy after their loss to Adelaide, the Giants fleet of runners ran amok against the Eagles.
The Giants midfielders will look to use the wide expanses of the MCG and across the course of the year they have found more of the football than their Tigers counterparts. They rank higher for disposals, uncontested possessions and clearances but Richmond's high-pressure style of football has choked a number of sides this season, including the Giants, who went down to the Tigers as recently as Round 18 at the MCG.
Dustin Martin heads in with red hot form and is expected to pick up the Brownlow Medal next week, while their other big names in Alex Race, Trent Cotchin and Jack Riewoldt also come off impressive games.
