How to watch GWS Giants vs Brisbane Lions AFL live and free

Posted: 18 July 2020 10:46 am

GWS Giants face a major test of their hopes in 2020 when they host Brisbane Lions in round 7. Check it out with these streaming options.

SUMMARY: Giants vs Lions is exclusive to Fox Footy. So unless you already subscribe to Foxtel, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

GWS Giants came into this season with high expectations they could go one step further than last year's grand final defeat to Richmond. Yet they have been disappointing to date, losing their past two matches to drop out of the top eight.

They take on a Brisbane Lions team that has its own eyes on the ultimate prize. The Lions are fourth on percentage after last week's poor effort against Geelong and will be keen for a win here to boost their standing nearing the halfway point of this abbreviated campaign.

Who will win GWS Giants vs Brisbane Lions?

The Giants have been frustratingly inconsistent this season. Strong wins over Geelong, Collingwood and Hawthorn have been offset by defeats to North Melbourne, the Bulldogs and Port Adelaide. So which GWS side turns up this week? If the Giants aren't on their game, they will be overrun by a Lions outfit that looks like a real premiership threat in 2020. We're leaning towards a narrow win for the Queenslanders in this one.
