Aussie Rules: Cameron down but not out

Greater Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron says the Giants are not giving up on finals despite suffering another defeat against St Kilda on Friday night.

GWS did have hopes of making the eight and playing finals this season but have it all to do after winning just one of their opening six games this season.

Belief still there

Despite the 17-point loss against the Saints at Manuka Oval Cameron says the belief is still there within the group and believes they can rescue their season.

Cameron also points to the fact the Giants have come up against some sides who are at the top of their game.

"Firstly, it did feel like a final, clearly we knew where we were at. (I'm) disappointed we got beaten, clearly,” Cameron told reporters after the game.

“My job is to make sure we're ready to go next week, we've never, ever given up on finals, ever. I think we were 2-5 last year. We've got a bit of ground to make up.

"Our boys are a little bit down on confidence, but our belief is there. We've got a good group. I've had a number of these players for ten years. I know when their belief is gone, and it's not gone.

"We've played St Kilda top-four, we've played Fremantle top-four, we've played Melbourne, we've played some really good teams.”

Cameron belief

Despite the far from satisfactory situation, Cameron is in no doubt the Giants can turn things around.

"We've got to keep learning and understand that every week if you're prepared to learn and understand why we got beaten or why we weren’t in the game we'll turn it around. I'm confident that will happen,” he added.
