With the AFL today announcing that State of Origin footy will be returning next month as a fundraiser for the devastating bushfires, attention now turns to who represents the GIANTS.

Each club is expected to have three players take part in the match, but which GIANTS will get the nod?

The GIANTS are blessed to have a number of stars that could represent either the Victorian team or the All Stars (representing the rest of the country).

Jeremy Cameron is the reigning Coleman Medallist and could be pulling on the big V for the first time, while fellow forward Toby Greene is also considered one of the most damaging goalkickers in the land.

A number of the members of the backline brigade will be putting their hand up too, with Phil Davis and Zac Williams eligible for the All Stars and Nick Haynes a contender for his native Victoria after an outstanding 2019.

The Victorians could also look to a veteran GIANT in Heath Shaw, who represented the Big V way back in 2008 as part of the Hall of Fame Tribute match. 


The midfield is where the real headache will be for selectors, with captain Stephen Coniglio, vice-captain Josh Kelly and fellow mids Lachie Whitfield, Jacob Hopper and 2019 Sheedy Medalist Tim Taranto all likely to be considered for selection.

Further details on the State of Origin match, including selection, will be announced in the coming weeks.
