GWS forwards Steve Johnson and Rory Lobb latest Giants players to be struck down by injury

GWS WILL have to overcome a decimated forward line if they’re to create club history in the Wild West on Sunday after stars Steve Johnson and Rory Lobb were added to a ballooning injury list.

The cruel double blow is set to spark a major reshuffle upfront as coach Leon Cameron tries to prepare his side for a maiden win over the West Coast Eagles in Perth without nine of his top line roster available.

Johnson’s latest knee setback has shone a spotlight on the difficult task the Giants now face to keep their veteran 33-year-old on the park for the big matches this season.

It’s becoming increasingly clear GWS will need to manage Johnson carefully through the regular season, after he also missed Round 4 with the same flare-up with his knee that has resurfaced following last week’s triumph over Richmond.

“Steve has been pulling up quite sore in recent weeks and his knee just hasn’t recovered well enough this week so won’t be available to play,” said the Giants’ head of athletic performance, David Joyce.
