Giants in the eight

DESPITE two losses in four matches this season the Greater Western Sydney Giants remain in the AFL competition top eight and now prepare to fly south to play Adelaide Crows at Adelaide Oval on Easter Sunday.

The Giants lost a hard-fought game, 17.10 (110) to 12.11 (83), against the Western Bulldogs at Startrack Oval, Canberra, on Saturday.

And the eighth-placed Giants will be without ruckman Shane Mumford after he pulled out of the Bulldogs game with a knee injury.

"We thought it was just general soreness. Unfortunately, with Mummy he had a very sore knee and he had a very sore shoulder," Giants coach Leon Cameron said.

"But his knee's really blown up and he's been operated on.

"It's a very, very minor operation, so he's probably going to miss one or two weeks."
