Four losses for GWS Giants

GREATER Western Sydney Giants need a confidence-boosting win when they play West Coast Eagles at Patersons Stadium in Perth on Sunday.

The Giants were cut down to size when defeated by 35 points by Port Adelaide in Canberra on Saturday.

Port Adelaide kicked 20.12 (132) to the Giants' 15.7 (97) in round seven of the AFL.

It was the team's fourth straight loss and even though the Giants have been highly competitive every week this season unless they start winning games soon they will be anchored near the bottom of the ladder.

In other club news, full forward Jeremy Cameron won't play against West Coast Eagles in Perth.

Cameron copped a heavy knock to his ear in the first quarter of the previous week's loss to Gold Coast Suns and had surgery last week for a peforated eardrum.

He played against Port Adelaide but he is unable to fly to Perth.

"He's not going to Perth," Giants coach Leon Cameron said.

"Unfortunately with his minor operation on Tuesday, he can't fly for four weeks and it's too big an ask to jump on a train or in a car.

"He'd have to start heading now."

After seven rounds, the Giants are 14th on eight points.
