The GIANTS expect star midfielder Josh Kelly to take on the Tigers in a blockbuster clash at GIANTS Stadium on Saturday while forward Toby Greene will put his hand up to play.

GIANTS General Manager of Football Wayne Campbell confirmed in this week’s Westfund Rehab Report that Kelly is fully fit and ready to play after off-season hip and knee surgery.

“We’ve been pretty conservative with Josh so far but we can confirm he’ll play this week,” Campbell said. 

“He’s done a big block of training now over the past four to six weeks and will play this week which is great for all GIANTS fans.” 

Greene will put his hand up to play at training on Wednesday afternoon but Campbell said the club would be cautious with the start forward after he experienced calf tightness towards the end of the round one win over the Bombers.

“He and Callan Ward are probably in the same boat where they’re both pretty keen to play, as competitive players are want to do,” Campbell said.

“I don’t think they’ll play this weekend. They’re a chance to but probably at this stage, definite for round four against Geelong.”

Young defender Sam Taylor came off the ground in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s loss to the Eagles while co-captain Phil Davis also failed to finish the game after a poke to the eye.

Campbell confirmed both Taylor and Davis will be fit to take on the Tigers.

Aidan Corr will make his playing return in the NEAFL on Saturday, playing managed minutes as he comes back from groin soreness over the pre-season.

Corr was one of the GIANTS’ most consistent defenders in 2018 before groin soreness also saw him miss the final eight matches of the season.

The 23-year-old is expected to be available for senior selection in round five.

Fellow co-captain Callan Ward and young forward Zac Langdon are continuing to recover from knee and foot injuries respectively with Ward expected to be available for selection next week.
