10 reasons why you should come to the GIANTS

There are so many reasons why you should come to UNSW Canberra Oval this Saturday but we've narrowed it down to ten.

With the GIANTS set to take on Fremantle in a big clash at UNSW Canberra Oval, we’ve come up with 10 reasons why you should get along to the football on Saturday afternoon.

1. The Raiders’ game doesn’t kick off until 7:35pm so there’s more than enough time to see the entirety of the GIANTS game, participate in Macca’s kick2kick and still get across town to GIO Stadium.

2. It’s been 5,807 days since the Dockers last played in Canberra. Back then the likes of Matthew Pavlich, Peter Bell, Jeff Farmer and Shaun McManus were the stars for Fremantle while their opponents North Melbourne featured Glenn Archer, David King, Matthew ‘Spider’ Burton, Byron Pickett, Mick Martyn, Adam Simpson and Anthony Stevens.
