  AFL top 100: GWS Giants' games and goals The giant baby of the competition has yet to bring up one decade of existence in the AFL, but has already created a CV to be proud of. That includes one grand final (loss), 11 finals (six wins), a win-loss ratio of 50 per cent or better against seven of its competitors, a home-grown AFL top 100 goal scorer, one other imported AFL top 100 goal scorer and three imported AFL top 100 game players. Unfortunately the home-grown star Jeremy Cameron has flown the nest and landed at Geelong where he will connect with fellow top 100 goal scorer Tom Hawkins as both improve their position on the goal-kicking list.

The Perth-raised player is due to be sentenced this week after he recently pleaded guilty to assaulting ex-girlfriend Lekahni Pearce, 18.

The former couple first made headlines in August after Taylor went to extraordinary lengths to smuggle his then-girlfriend into the AFL's quarantine hub in Perth.

Taylor was suspended for the rest of the season over the coronavirus biosecurity breach and remained in Perth to be with family.
