Greater Western Sydney have decided not to offer veteran Heath Shaw a new contract, raising the strong prospect that the defender has played his final AFL game.

Giants general manager of football Jason McCartney praised the 325-gamer for his longevity.

"Heath is an unbelievable competitor and has done a remarkable job to get himself up to play consistently over such a long period of time," McCartney said in a statement.

Shaw played 173 matches for the club where his surname is etched into the history books, Collingwood, before switching to the New South Wales newcomers.

  The AFL all-time great alphabet teams: Letter S The S team is surprisingly light for scoring options, but with a midfield as good as this, there will be plenty of opportunity. Back line Bernie Smith (Geelong 1948-58) 183 games, three goals Starting his career at West Adelaide, Bernie Smith was already a star centreman by the time he crossed to Geelong in 1948. He continued in the centre for a few years before coach Reg Hickey repositioned him to the back pocket in 1951. To say Smith took to the position well is an understatement – a best and fairest, a Brownlow Medal, and a near best-on-ground performance in a premiership were all his by the end of the year.

After winning a premiership at Collingwood, Shaw played 152 games at his second home which included All-Australian honours in 2015 and 2016 and the Kevin Sheedy Medal for best and fairest in 2015.

The 34-year-old thanked the Giants for - in his description - giving him the opportunity to rejuvenate and refresh a somewhat flamboyant character back in 2013.

"If you'd told me 10 years ago that I'd be a life member, a club champion and two-time All Australian and have played off in a grand final at a club that didn't exist a decade ago, I would have taken a leaf out of Darryl Kerrigan's book and said, 'Tell 'em they're dreaming,'" said Shaw.

"I don't think an interview has gone past where I haven't said how thankful I am to this club for a second chance, or told everyone how really special and unique this club is.
