Aussie Rules: Cameron admits Greene dilemma

Greater Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron says Toby Greene is impossible to replace as he comes to terms with being without the superstar for the first five rounds of the new season.

The Giants are priced at 15/1 to win the 2022 AFL grand final but Greene will miss out on the opening weeks after copping a huge suspension at the end of last season.

Selection dilemma

Greene was hit with the ban after being charged with intentional contact with an umpire during the elimination final win over Sydney last season and it has carried over in to 2022.

Cameron is now working out how to fill the void for the opening five rounds, and although he has quality players who can step in, Greene is a class above.

"You can't replace him. You can't wave a magic wand and replace Toby Greene," Cameron told AFL.com.au. "He's a wonderful player, he's a superstar of the competition and it's disappointing we don’t have him for the first five weeks."

Meanwhile Cameron also says a lot of work has gone into Greene since the incident to try and ensure it does not happen again.

"The one thing is it's honest, honest conversations, about learning what went wrong and what goes right," Cameron added. "Also maintaining what he's really, really good at. You can always focus on what he's bad at, we know he's made a mistake, but equally he's done a lot right."

Hogan progress

There is some good regarding Jesse Hogan with Cameron confirming the forward is making good progress from injury and should soon be able to return to full training.

"He can't run around like a first-year player and do every session," Cameron added. "Fingers crossed we get a faultless February with him."
