LIVE: Giants nightmare lingering ahead of Pies clash

The Giants will have to overcome grim memories inflicted by the Magpies if they are to reach the grand final.

While the Giants are riding a four-game winning streak into tonight’s preliminary final at the MCG, they were thrashed by 65 points when they last met the Magpies at the same venue in round nine.

GWS faced the powerhouse club without superstar skipper Toby Greene and was hammered by a Nick Daicos-inspired outfit.

The Brownlow Medal contender racked up 41 disposals in a best-on-ground performance.

While the prospect of GWS and Collingwood squaring off in a preliminary final was extremely unlikely as Giants players trudged from the ground on that night in May, the Sydney club has since lost just four games.
