EVERYONE who sees Greater Western Sydney forward Jeremy Cameron rates him as a special player, but what impresses his captain Callan Ward most is an attribute all players love in their teammates - courage.

"[He's] probably one of the bravest I have ever played with," Ward said.

"He doesn't have any real fear at all."

Cameron burst on to the scene last year as a key forward kicking 29 goals in just 16 games.

He won the Giants' goalkicking award, finished third in the club best and fairest and was runner-up in the NAB AFL Rising Star Award.

He had a delayed start to this pre-season with a hip injury but kicked three goals in the first quarter of the final pre-season hit out against the Saints last week.

Ward is as excited by his potential as anyone.

"[He] just puts his head over the ball and gets crunched.

[He's] still pretty skinny, still putting on weight - that is what you need in your power forward and we have got that in Jeremy Cameron."

Cameron will turn 20 on April Fools' Day, two days after the opening round against the Sydney Swans.

He is likely to line-up alongside his future partner-in-crime inside 50 Jonathan Patton, for just the eighth time, but with another pre-season spent working together behind them.

"Once they start to get a synergy together [and become] two forwards working together they will be two great key forwards for us," Ward said.

Their presence will certainly give the team's midfielders some tall targets to kick to.

"[Cameron] just hits the pack so hard and that is what you need: a competitor who keeps working hard and keeps getting into the contest and hits blokes hard," Ward said.

That quality combined with a lack of fear can create apprehension in teammates who have to train with Cameron.

Ward said the young centre half-forward's definition of token pressure can sometimes be different to the rest of the team.

"Even on the training track he runs through blokes," Ward said.

"One time Phil Davis was on his own and Jeremy Cameron came flying in from behind and his knee flew into (Davis's) back and corked his back."

If Cameron does that to one of his skippers one can only wonder what is possible once he puts some bulk on to his developing frame.
