The Giants’ best season came in 2016 where they fell just six points short of making it into their first ever AFL grand final. The Giants won their first final in that year against cross-town rivals Sydney.
Unlike Gold Coast, this new team has consistently improved each year. Unfortunately, injuries hurt this side throughout the year. This 22-man squad will be one of the youngest but most competitive out of all the teams.
The forward line of Jeremy Cameron, Jon Patton and Toby Greene is dangerous to any opponent and Phil Davis leads a defence full of strong intercept players.
The midifeld is where this side really shines though. Josh Kelly, Stephen Coniglio, Tom Scully, Callen Ward, Dylan Shiel and Lachie Whitfield are all stars that can run, carry and dispose of the ball well.
