A relieved Toby Greene has promised to maintain his aggression in Saturday's AFL grand final but says he won't be going near anyone's face.
Suspended from last weekend's nail-biting preliminary final win over Collingwood, the GWS star says he's fresh and anxious to face Richmond - with one caveat.
"I probably won't be going near anyone's face but I'll be playing how I usually play," Greene said as the Giants began preparations for their first grand final appearance.
Greene's finals campaign has been tumultuous.
He was fined $7500 for serious misconduct after an ugly incident with Western Bulldog Marcus Bontempelli in the first week of the finals.
Another face-grabbing moment on Lachie Neale in the Giants' semi-final win over the Lions led to his one-game ban.
The hardest thing for Greene was being unable to play last weekend's match, with the media spotlight and being cast as an AFL villian not bothering the 25-year- old.
"I'd rather not be doing this but it's all part of it," Greene told a packed media conference on Monday at Giants HQ.
"There's been a few stories along the last couple of weeks but it's all played out well and we're in a grand final so I'm happy.
"It's just part of it, playing AFL footy. I guess I always compare it to EPL players and I love my soccer, the scrutiny they face is 10 times this, so I always refer back to that."
Greene's fellow foundation Giant Jeremy Cameron said Stephen Coniglio had trained with the team on Monday and remained a chance of lining up against the Tigers.
"He [Coniglio] is out there running around this morning," Cameron said.
"He's putting his hand up and there's quite a number of guys who are right on that cusp and I'm sure them calls will come later in the week."
