The GWS Giants are buoyed by the re-signing of emerging superstar Isaac Cumming, who has penned a two-year extension at GWS tying him to the club until the end of the 2024 season.

The Giants announced the re-signing of Cumming on Wednesday morning, along with a two-year contract extension for 19-year-old Ryan Angwin.

Speaking to media on Wednesday, Giants coach Leon Cameron expressed his excitement over the 23-year-old's future, while Cumming attributed his rise to a consistent 2021 season in which he played all 24 games for the Giants and earned an equal-sixth place finish in the club’s Best and Fairest.

“Once I found myself in the round one spot last year I didn’t want to lose that spot,” Cumming said.

“So my main goal was to be there and play every game that year and I knew it would take consistent footy to do that” 

When quizzed on what drew him to remaining at the club, Cumming pointed to the close family-like unit and welcoming club environment GWS houses.

“Since the first day I walked in I absolutely fell in love with the place," he continued

"(It's) so family oriented... close unit. Everyone has had to move up to Sydney so that had created a strong bond within the team."

Cameron was full of praise for the Broken Hill product, stating he could see Cumming playing for 12-15 years at the Giants. 

“It’s the classic example - a kid willing to do that apprenticeship. Isaac has knuckled down and done an enormous apprenticeship,” he said at a media conference on Wednesday morning. 

“He has a first class work rate now. He’s elite for us. His understanding of what it takes to become an AFL footballer has just grown and grown over the last probably two and half to three years. 

“It looks like it's taken a while but he’s set himself up with a strong base to be a 200-game player now.

“We can see him playing for 12-15 years at this footy club.” 

The GWS Academy graduate has now played 38 games for GWS, and will add to that tally as a Giant for at least another two seasons.

The Giants sit at 1-3 after four rounds, and will look to bounce back against Melbourne at the MCG this Saturday night.
