GWS GIANTS

Mark McVeigh on:

Stephen Coniglio

“He’s well, he’s okay.”

Josh Kelly

“He cramped a little bit late, with about 5 minutes to go.”

Mason Cox

Brodie Grundy

“Still 6 weeks away.”

Brody Mihocek

“He was 50/50 for most of the week, didn’t train at all.”

“He’s really sore.”

“It’s one thing to play injured, but the other thing is to actually play well injured. It’s a sign of his character.”

Nick Daicos

“To be honest we’ve sort of moved him back to look after him, have the experience around him.”

“The plan was probably to shift him a little bit more forward second half of the year, but it’s going to be hard to do that now.”
