Greater Western Sydney Giants captain Stephen Coniglio wants State of Origin back

“Yes we do have 22 games plus finals after that, but we can find a spot in there.

“I think it will just add to where AFL is at at the moment, which is right at the top of the tree.

“It is a jam-packed schedule, but whether it be for charities or what not it’s a great spectacle particularly in a pre-season time slot or in the middle of the year during winter. It’s definitely something I think is worth pursuing.”

Midfielder Coniglio, who was appointed captain shortly after inking a new seven-year deal, is set to play his first competitive minutes since he suffered an injury last July.

“I’m just in a really good spot mentally and physically at the moment and the knee is the least of my worries,” he said.


Coniglio wasn’t sure if his game time for the All-Stars would be limited by GWS.

“I’m not sure if I’m there to give Nat Fyfe the water, or if I’m actually going to be playing in the game,” he quipped.

Meanwhile, the intense speculation last year over Coniglio’s future is set to shift to teammates Jeremy Cameron and Zac Williams, who are both coming off contract.

“They’ve just got to come back to what’s important to them, that’s where I found my answer,” Coniglio said.
