Shaw eyes new start after GWS release
Heath Shaw is on the lookout for the third club of his career after being delisted by Greater Western Sydney.
The 34-year-old has just been told by the Giants there is no contract for him in 2021, but the former Collingwood star has no intention of hanging up his boots just yet.
The defender is now weighing up all of his options ahead of the new campaign and has made it clear he wants more than just a bit-part role.
Moving into a coaching role is also an option for Shaw, who is keen to prolong his lengthy career by at least one more season.
He joined the Giants ahead of the 2014 season and managed to play 152 games during seven seasons with the club. During that time he also picked up All Australian honours in 2015 and 2016.
Shaw also had an impressive career with Collingwood, playing 173 games between 2005 and 2013, and winning the premiership in 2010 before heading to GWS.
Shaw is not the only player to head for the exit door in what looks like being a huge off-season for the Giants.
They have already lost Zac Williams and Aidan Corr to free agency and a host of other key players could go the same way unless the Giants can tie them down.
Jeremy Cameron, who is attracting interest from Geelong and other rival clubs, is the biggest concern, while Jye Caldwell, Jackson Hately and Xavier O'Halloran also need securing.
There was some good news however after Harry Perryman put pen-to-paper last week.
