  Adelaide Crows vs GWS Giants first qualifying final preview and prediction The 2017 finals kick off with a matchup we haven’t seen since Round 1 – the Adelaide Crows hosting the GWS Giants at Adelaide Oval. The winner gets a golden ticket to the grand final in the form of a home preliminary final, the loser must take the long way around to make it to the last Saturday of September.That meeting in the first week of the year radically defied expectations – most were expecting a season of stagnation from the Crows, and the Giants came into 2017 as flag favourites.

In-demand AFL star Josh Kelly has reportedly agreed to re-sign with Greater Western Sydney, shunning big-money offers from rival clubs.

The 22-year-old midfielder is close to inking a two-year deal contract extension, according to multiple media outlets.

The Victorian had been expected to extend his time at the Giants despite suitors from his home state lining up to make offers.

He was reportedly offered a nine-year deal by North Melbourne worth $10 million, with the Giants' contract believed to be worth around $300,000 less per season.

It comes amid an impressive 2017 campaign for Kelly, who was rewarded with his maiden All-Australian selection after averaging 29.4 disposals a game for GWS.

The Giants celebrated another list management win on Wednesday when 2012 No.1 draft pick Lachie Whitfield re-signed until 2020.
