“I’ll just be doing whatever I can each day.

“[I need to show that I can] get through all the elements of the movement, the things you might come across in a game.”

Meanwhile Dees ruck Lauren Pearce was also on light duties at training but the club said this was no cause for alarm.

Elsewhere, Greater Western Sydney’s Irishwoman Brid Stack is weighing up whether to return to AFLW in 2022 after a neck fracture ended her maiden season before it began.

Stack was hurt in a controversial tackle by Adelaide’s Ebony Marinoff in a pre-season match.

“I am privileged and honoured to have been offered another contract. My Giants teammates have spent the last few days attempting to sway me to return next year but I’m not sure what my next move will be,” Stack told the Irish Examiner.

“Any decision around my future here will be made in its own good time but, for now, I’m just so grateful to the club for the opportunity, and so proud of myself to have dealt with the varying circumstances I found myself in.

“It didn’t work out as I had planned but I have made peace with that frustration. I have no regrets. I trained harder than I’ve ever trained before in my life. I put myself under pressure to try and make everything work.

“When I look back on it all now, I realise that even me putting myself in a position to get out here was making it work in the first place.”
