The team will miss his presence as they prepare to face the first-place Sydney Swans this weekend, where the star defenceman was expected to play against Joel Amartey.

With only one win being the difference between seventh and second, GWS will be looking to end Sydney’s nine-win streak.

Sydney’s coach recently praised Taylor as the best defender in the league.

“Sam Taylor is definitely one of the defenders in the league now,” Longmire mentioned.

The Giants must figure out how to fill the void left by Taylor’s expertise and guidance in defence to defeat the Swans and maintain their chances for the AFL finals.

The top AFL bookmakers are currently offering $2.70 for the upset win against the Sydney Swans.
