New GWS recruit Tendai Mzungu has had his Giants debut cut short after suffering a hamstring injury early in the second quarter.

In his debut for the Giants, Mzungu sustained the injury whilst attempting a mark inside the Giants’ forward 50, and limped straight for the bench after the incident.

Mzungu was spotted on the GWS bench with ice on his hamstring shortly after departing the field, and is unlikely to return.

The Giants selected Mzungu with the 15th pick in the 2016 rookie draft, after he was de-listed by Fremantle after a 102-game career with the Dockers.
