    He's been pretty terrible and probably close to getting dropped over the past few weeks anyway so I don't think it's a huge blow on field. Shitty news though, ACLs just suck and hope for the best for him.

    A “wiser” Toby Greene is giving himself every chance of making a lasting contribution to GWS Giants’ 2019 campaign as he battles to make the club’s season-opener against Essendon on March 24.

    The 25-year-old forward had ankle surgery in November on the injury he sustained during the club’s semi-final loss to Collingwood at the MCG.

    This coming after he played only nine games due to a foot problem, but despite the long spells on the sidelines, he can see light at the end of the tunnel and he’s busting a gut to bring it ever closer.

    “It’s a week-by-week thing but it’s going in the right direction,” he told The Daily Telegraph.

    “So hopefully in the next four to six weeks I’ll be training with the boys.

    “Getting (ankle) surgery was a bit frustrating but it’s all part of it (football).”

    And as he puts in the hard yards to give himself the best possible crack at a successful 2019 campaign, Greene admits he is a little smarter for the setbacks.

    Senior coach Leon Cameron is also taking the week-by-week approach with Greene, mindful that he wants to give the player the best possible chance of enjoying as lengthy a campaign as possible.

    “He’s been running for probably about four weeks now,” Cameron told The Daily Telegraph. “He’s really starting to motor along, tick over and get some yards into his legs.

    “We have to be really mindful that we can get Toby ready for 20 games instead of eight to 10 and have interruption. Is it easy? No it isn’t because you always want your quality out there every week.

    “But he’s chugging along, he’s on track and the whips’ll be cracking for him in a couple of weeks’ time.”

    Given his low average after last year he's a pretty tempting pick but anytime I read that someone is battling to play for the season opener it's a pretty big warning sign.

    Yeah, even harder for a guy like him who uses the gut running so much as part of how they score, they're the ones who struggle the most when that's taken away. Could probably still get him cheap as an early upgrade without the downside risk if he is in any doubt approaching round 1.
