Last time they met: GWS (7.4 46) def W.B. (4.4 28), Round 6, 2018 at Manuka Oval

Three years have passed since these two sides met for premiership points, with both teams having lost some big names to expansion clubs in the process. It was an upset win to the Giants that day, overcoming a slow start to beat the ladder-leading Bulldogs by 18 points. The Bulldogs took the early advantage with three of the first four goals, before the hosts swung momentum back their way after quarter-time. Leaders Ellie Blackburn (17 disposals) and Brooke Lochland (15, eight marks) were among the best, while Hannah Scott (15) and Kirsten McLeod (two goals) were important contributors.
