GWS Giants: Zac Williams ruptures achilles

ZAC WILLIAMS ruptured his achilles at training on Friday morning, it is not known as yet how long he will be sidelined but it expected to be a significant part of the 2018 season.

Williams will have scans on Monday to determine the extent of the injury, it is expected GWS will release a statement shortly after outlining his timeline for a return to footy.

After trading Nathan Wilson in the off-season to Fremantle the Giants defensive stocks are now thin, it is expected Heath Shaw will shoulder most of the kick in duties with the absence of Wilson.

AFL FANTASY TAKE:

Heath Shaw is the obvious candidate to see a spike in his fantasy output, he averaged 79.4pts last season scoring 100pts or more in only 12.0% of games. The Giants have an opening in defence and now are a must watch to see how they restructure.
