Five Inclusions for Sunday Clash

He trained well, he’s still got a few little things he’s got to tick off but he’s definitely progressing in the right manner.

The GIANTS have added five players - including vice-captain Stephen Coniglio - to the extended interchange as the squad of 26 is finalised for Sunday’s MCG clash with the Demons.

Star midfielder Coniglio joins youngsters Jackson Hately and Isaac Cumming, ruckman Dawson Simpson and defender Lachlan Keeffe in the extended squad. 

As confirmed on Wednesday, running half-back Zac Williams will miss this week’s game with a hamstring injury.

Coach Leon Cameron said Coniglio performed well in today’s main training session but would have to tick all the boxes to line up against Melbourne.

“He trained well, he’s still got a few little things he’s got to tick off but he’s definitely progressing in the right manner,” Cameron said.

“Jackson Hately’s been in good form, Isaac Cumming, Dawson Simpson, Lachie Keeffe, they’re all in good form, banging the door down, wanting an opportunity and we’ll finalise that on Friday.” 

The interchange will be reduced on Friday with the final 22 named at 5pm.

The GIANTS take on the Demons at the MCG on Sunday afternoon with live coverage on 7mate in NSW and the ACT and Fox Footy all around Australia.
