AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan has risked the ire of the rest of competition by saying he would like Stephen Coniglio to stay at the Giants.

The out-of-contract midfielder is attracting several big-money offers from Victoria and is rumoured to be weighing up a move away from Sydney, with Carlton understood to be one of the clubs in the mix.

“Certainly my advice is that’s not a given (that Coniglio is leaving).
