STAR forward Toby Greene has been reported for the second straight week but he's still got the backing of coach Leon Cameron.
Greene played another starring role in the Giants' thrilling two-point win over the Western Bulldogs on Friday night, but his three-goal effort was again overshadowed when he was booked for striking Caleb Daniel in the third term.
After the match, Cameron said he wasn't prepared to judge Greene on the crude swinging arm that left Daniel bleeding from the mouth, and cost his side a crucial goal.

"I understand there's going to be some speculation on it, but I don't want to speculate until I have a really good look at it," he said.
"Look, if he's in strife, he's in strife. If he gets a week then that’s the way it goes, and if he gets off, he gets off.
"What I will say is I love the way he goes about his footy, we speak about it regularly, and he will get better and better at (handling) these moments."
Cameron also said he isn't worried about his fiery forward being baited by his opponents.
"He plays on the edge and he's tough and hard, but you could say that about Heath Shaw and Steve Johnson and Jeremy Cameron, and you could say that about a few of the Dogs. 'Libba' (Tom Liberatore) plays it hard and tough, and (so does) Clay Smith," he said.
"I don't see it as an issue that the opposition are going to wind up Toby Greene, in fact it probably works the opposite.
"He actually loves the big moments and he had huge moments tonight, he's a crucial part of our footy club and he's playing some outstanding footy.
"I don't want to always talk about the negatives because he's a very popular player at our footy club."
The Giants will be sweating on the availability of a handful of players for next weekend's Friday night game against St Kilda, with Nick Haynes (adductor), Shane Mumford (ankle), Aidan Corr (hamstring), and Sam Reid (hamstring) all spending time on the bench against the Bulldogs.
Reid looks highly unlikely to face the Saints, with Haynes and Mumford almost certain to need scans on their issues.
