It was mixed news at GWS on Tuesday, with defender Sam Taylor signing a contract extension, while it's been confirmed that ruckman Matthew Flynn has ruptured his ACL.

Taylor, 20, has played 23 senior games and quickly established himself in side's best 22.

The Western Australian signed a two-year extension with the Giants, keeping him at the club until at least the end of 2022.

GWS list manager Jason McCartney lauded Taylor's contribution to the club.

"We knew we picked a competitive and determined player when we selected Sam in the 2017 draft and we’re ecstatic with his rapid development," McCartney said.

"He’s ruthless on the field yet shy and humble off the field and we’re thrilled he’s added another two years to his contract.

"He has seamlessly slotted into our back six alongside co-captain Phil Davis and has already become an incredibly important member of our team."

Unfortunately it wasn't all good news in Western Sydney, with the club confirming that young ruckman Flynn had injured his ACL while playing in the NEAFL over the weekend.

"It’s devastating for Flynny,” Giants footy manager Wayne Campbell said.

"He’s developed each year, each game and each month really that he’s been at the football club and had been really close to senior selection.

"He went down, stepped on the back of Jye Caldwell’s leg and hyperextended it.
