Steve Johnson expected to return for GWS Giants in semi-final against West Coast

STEVE Johnson is looking odds on to return for Saturday’s semi-final against West Coast at Spotless Stadium after Giants coach Leon Cameron gave him a ringing endorsement after training.

Johnson was dropped for the qualifying final against Adelaide but impressed in the reserves practice match which followed the nest day.

Cameron said his 24 games of finals experience gave him an advantage over his teammates competing for inclusion.
