Whitfield, 26, endured a difficult 12-week recovery after bruising his liver in a training incident in February.

The 2018 All-Australian spent nine nights in hospital and had to wait for blood surrounding his liver to reduce before he could ramp up training.

"The performance guys have been ramping up how much (Whitfield's) been doing from a conditioning perspective - also he's been able to start some contact work which is pretty important considering he's going to come back and play on the weekend," GWS head of medical Cullan Ball told the club's website.

Is a change as good as a holiday?

  Is a change as good as a holiday? It would be a great spectacle if a team made up of one-club players played against another team made up of players who have played for more than one club. The teams would be selected based on the form of the players in season 2021 after five games. In order to be eligible for selection a player must have featured in all of the opening five games that have been played so far. Check out the team made up of one-club players.

"We've been able to gradually increase both of those things, the amount of work and training that he's doing to get him right into a condition to play - and also the amount of contact to ensure that he's fit to play on the weekend as well.

"So he's done well in both those regards and we think he's good to go."

The Giants could be without gun defender Nick Haynes (hamstring) for up to a month after he was substituted out of their loss to the Western Bulldogs.

"We'll just see how quickly he settles and how quickly we can get him back into training," Ball said.

Xavier O'Halloran (shoulder) and Sam Reid (hamstring) both need to pass fitness tests but are expected to be available.
