Where and When: Saturday, April 2 at 4:35pm, GIANTS Stadium

Last time they met: 

The GIANTS’ finals hopes were left hanging by a thread after conceding two goals in the final four minutes to lose to Gold Coast by a point at Mars Stadium in Ballarat while on the road last season. The GIANTS appeared set for victory after Toby Greene's third goal, but goals to Matt Rowell and David Swallow within the space of 60 seconds gave Gold Coast a one-point lead. The Suns survived several other frantic attacks by the GIANTS to hold on for the 10.5 (65) to 9.10 (64) win.

TV and Online: 

Saturday’s match will be shown live on Fox Footy and Kayo nationally and on 7mate in NSW and the ACT from 4:30pm.

What it means for the GIANTS: 

A disappointing loss to Richmond at the MCG means the GIANTS are still searching for their first win this year. Returning to GIANTS Stadium for the first time since round 14 last year, the GIANTS will be eager for a happy homecoming and will take confidence from a strong winning record against the Gold Coast Suns. 

Where’s the opposition at: 

Stuart Dew's side have made a promising start to the 2022 season, beating the Eagles in the opening round before falling narrowly to the reigning premiers, Melbourne, in round two. Touk Miller is continuing to enhance his reputation as one of the AFL's best midfielders in 2022, registering 67 disposals over two games to start the season. 

The number: 4 - the number of times the GIANTS got to play at GIANTS Stadium in 2021. Saturday afternoon’s game will be the AFL team’s first time playing for premiership points at the venue since June 19 last year. 

In the mix: 

There’s a bit for the match committee to work through again this week for the GIANTS. Phil Davis will miss approximately two to three months after suffering a hamstring injury late in the second quarter against the Tigers. Forward Daniel Lloyd was subbed out of last round’s match with a fractured forearm and will be sidelined for 8-10 weeks. Finn CallaghanJake Stein and Jacob Wehr all starred for the GIANTS as they defeated Port Melbourne in the opening round of the VFL on the weekend. Ruckman Braydon Preuss could make his club debut this weekend after also impressing in the VFL.
