    导出博客文章They deny going from being bullied to being bullies, but GWS Giants are
    certainly happy to be known for having a physical edge to their AFL game.In last
    weekends preliminary final upset over Sydney, the relentless Giants laid 32 more
    tackles than the club which leads the competition in that category.With feisty
    veterans Shane Mumford and Steve Johnson leading the way, GWS showed they had
    the aggressive substance to go with their attractive playing styleIt was a far
    cry from the physically light early GWS teams who suffered losses by 10 or more
    goals 14 times in each of their first two seasons.The scrawny teenagers from
    those years are now strong, fully developed athletes, steeled and shaped by five
    years of strength and conditioning in the AFL system.Fast forward to 2016 and
    its the Giants dealing out the beatings, with seven wins of over 60 points in
    the current campaign.Star forward Jeremy Cameron said the physicality his side
    displayed against Sydney was something they wanted to bring to every game.Its
    something that weve had to work on a lot over the last few years, Cameron
    said.From the start it was probably the last thing; youre just worried about
    getting a kick at the start.Tackling and that sort of stuff, our defensive side
    of our game is something we really had to work hard on and guys like (Giants
    assistant coaches) Lenny Hayes and Luke Power really put in the hard time with
    us.Its great to see that hard work paying off.Foundation players like Cameron
    and utility Adam Tomlinson are relishing the good times having come through the
    bad.We were bullied for our first three years and we got used to losing,
    Tomlinson said.Thats why we probably celebrate wins as well as we do now,
    because they were few and far between in our first few years.Tomlinson denied it
    was case of the Giants turning bullies.We try not to bully teams, but we do want
    to play a contested brand of football, he said.If it does come out that we are
    playing really good footy and we do over-run a team, then so be it.Giants
    midfielder Josh Kelly said we want to be known for our toughness, contested
    footy (and) tackling. Ultra Boost
    . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a
    sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its
    embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman
    Josh Gorges.

    - The red-hot Los Angeles Kings will try to extend their winning streak to a
    season-high seven games when they visit the Edmonton Oilers for Sundays clash at
    Rexall Place. Southampton will travel north to Hull City on Sunday with the wind
    beneath their wings.The Saints (3-4-3) enjoyed the clubs greatest ever European
    night on Thursday with a 2-1 comeback win over the admittedly-diminished Italian
    giants Inter Milan. It was a deserved victory for a team that thoroughly
    outplayed Internazionale both home and away -- although they did succumb to an
    unfortunate defeat in Milan a fortnight ago.The Saints performance further
    strengthened the belief that they are a team capable of challenging for at least
    a top-six spot in Premier League again this season. Manager Claude Puel insists
    it is important that his players are able to transfer their Inter performance
    into domestic action.Its important now to forget this game against Inter Milan
    and now its another competition and an important game for us against Hull City,
    Puel said. It will be important to have a good result just before the
    international break for the mind and the confidence, and also because we dont
    have a lot of points in the Premier League.Its important to be in the top half
    of the Premier League.Hull City (2-1-7), meanwhile, are in a whole heap of
    trouble.The Tigers have lost six on the bounce, conceding more goals than any
    other team in the division while scoring fewer than all except bottom-feeders
    Sunderland heading into this weekends play.And its not just stats that suggest
    Hull could be under threat of an immediate return to the seconnd tier of English
    football.dddddddddddd They have flip-flopped between tactical styles and team
    lineups, with manager Mike Phelan so far appearing incapable of creating a
    functioning first team out of the available players.However, the former
    Manchester United assistant manager is not panicking just yet.Its a big learning
    curve for all of us, Phelan said. Im relishing it. Its not fazing me. Im not
    depressed or down and Im pretty confident. Its about settling everything down.
    With the quality weve got and the togetherness were trying to get, Im sure we
    can achieve something.(Southampton) have a squad comparable to any top team in
    the Premier League. They are a club on the up and we will have to be at our best
    to be competitive.Hulls injury crisis is beginning to ease, but Phelan will
    still be without defenders Alex Bruce and Andy Robertson for Sundays fixture.
    Robert Snodgrass and Dieumerci Mbokani both also struggling to shake off knocks
    in time to feature.Southamptons Shane Long, Matty Targett and Cedric Soares
    remain unavailable due to injury, but Puel rotated his team slightly for
    Thursdays Europa League tie so he should have fresh legs to call upon.Hulls
    record against the Saints is worse than against any other Premier League club.
    All four top-flight meetings have ended in defeat for the Tigers. ' ' '
