Giants to unveil Coniglio as captain

Greater Western Sydney midfielder Stephen Coniglio has taken over as club captain.

Coniglio, who will officially be appointed as skipper on Tuesday afternoon, will take over from co-captains Phil Davis and Callan Ward, having recently re-signed with the Giants for seven years. He turned down mammoth offers from Carlton and Hawthorn to do so.

The 25-year-old last played in round 17 against Richmond when he hobbled off the field with a knee injury, which caused him to miss the remainder of the season including the grand final.

The appointment comes during an off-season of upheaval for GWS, who have lost senior assistant coach Matthew Nicks to Adelaide, while longtime football boss Wayne Campbell was sacked following a dispute with chief executive Dave Matthews.
