New faces: After an off-season where GWS lost quality depth while not adding any experienced talent, the best 22 is unlikely to see any new faces. Younger players such as Setterfield and Himmelberg will likely have to step up, while draftee Aiden Bonar could debut if his body holds up after being taken in the first round of the national draft.

On the fringe: Experienced duo Sam Reid and Matt De Boer will provide depth for the Giants and will be called upon at some point in 2018, while youngsters Adam Kennedy and Harry Perryman should both feature next season.

First picked: Dylan Shiel

Last picked: Will Setterfield

Best 22:

B: Nick Haynes, Phil Davis, Aidan Corr
HB: Heath Shaw, Adam Tomlinson, Zac Williams
C: Josh Kelly, Stephen Coniglio, Tom Scully
HF: Brett Deledio, Jonathan Patton, Lachie Whitfield
F: Tim Taranto, Jeremy Cameron, Toby Greene
FOL: Rory Lobb, Callan Ward, Dylan Shiel
I/C: Jacob Hopper, Ryan Griffen, Will Setterfield, Harrison Himmelberg
