Prized Geelong recruit Jeremy Cameron is set to make his long-awaited debut for the club in Round 6.

The star forward suffered a hamstring setback in the pre-season, which followed a previous interruption in January in the same area.

But Geelong coach Chris Scott has confirmed he is good to go for Saturday’s blockbuster clash against West Coast.

“He (Cameron) is ready to go and he is in,” Scott told reporters on Sunday after his side’s win over North Melbourne.

“I am putting a bit of pressure on our medical and conditioning staff as well, but it‘s about time.”

After the Giants matched the Cats’ free agency bid for Cameron, Geelong acquired him in the trade period from for three-first round picks.

The pairing of Cameron and Tom Hawkins inside 50 will be a site for Geelong fans to behold, with Hawkins having currently booted 10 goals through five games.

The Cats have gotten off to a somewhat indifferent start to 2021, sitting eighth on the ladder with three wins but struggling to tie good form together.

They host the Eagles at GMHBA Stadium on Saturday at 1.45pm AEST.
