Giants midfielder Callan Ward has been ruled out of Sunday’s clash against Hawthorn with soreness.

The luckless former GWS skipper will be replaced by Tom Sheridan.

Sheridan joins Lachlan Keefe and Daniel Lloyd as the inclusions for the Giants, as Zac Williams and Sam Taylor will miss after sustaining injuries.
