A list so stacked with talent and a multitude of young Victorians, it’s tough to retain all of them.

GWS have been no stranger to that concept over the years, and have had to deal with a range of exits – some of whom have gone on to bigger and better things after seeking greener pastures elsewhere.

Here are the 10 best players that GWS have lost since their introduction into the competition.

9. Rory Lobb

Quality ruckmen aren’t easy to come by, and GWS undoubtedly would have hoped to have the service of Rory Lobb for a number of years to come.

Unfortunately it wasn’t to be, as Lobb requested a trade at the end of the 2018 season and returned to his native Western Australia.

The Giants have the short-term luxury of Shane Mumford making a comeback, but that surely isn’t to be for too long, and Lobb’s absence is likely to be felt in the coming years.
