Key duels in Giants-Bulldogs AFL final

FIVE KEY GIANTS-BULLDOGS MATCH-UPS

* Jeremy Cameron (Giants) v Dale Morris (Bulldogs): Morris always gets the big jobs and rarely lets the Dogs down. Cameron is adept in the air and on the ground and can swing a game in minutes, as he did in the qualifying final.

* Callan Ward (Giants) v Marcus Bontempelli (Bulldogs): The GWS co-captain is relentless around the packs, which is where the young Dog star does great damage. And Bontempelli can expect physical attention everywhere he steps.

* Heath Shaw (Giants) v Clay Smith (Bulldogs): Shaw's ability to start attacks from his defensive post is a vital cog in the Giants' wheel. Smith is likely to try and keep him on a tight leash while trying to hit the scoreboard himself.

* Joel Patfull (Giants) v Jake Stringer (Bulldogs): The dynamic Stringer has found his mojo again and can sway a game in a matter of minutes. Patfull will lock down on the top Dog but it will take every ounce of his concentration.

* Shane Mumford (Giants) v Jordan Roughead (Bulldogs): Roughead is tasked with stopping a raging bull. Can he prevent Mumford gaining ascendancy in the ruck and giving the Giants midfielders gold-plated service?
