STINGING from another shoulder knock plus an embarrassing loss, Jeremy Cameron is determined to push through the pain barrier until GWS has a mid-season bye.
Cameron booted 0.4 at the MCG last Sunday against Hawthorn, when he was one of many Giants to struggle in what board member Jimmy Bartel described as the club's worst performance ever.
It was the first time this season the Coleman medal leader has been held goalless.

Early fears that Cameron, who crashed against the MCG fence following a shove from James Frawley, could miss Sunday's clash with Carlton at Giants Stadium have since been allayed.
The 26-year-old had a kick on Wednesday and the club fully expects him to face the Blues this weekend.
Cameron has dealt with a series of shoulder problems this season but isn't likely to get a break of substance until the Giants have their week off in round 14.
"He's pretty keen to keep going. He'll keep playing until the bye, unless something drastic keeps him out," GWS forwards coach Brad Miller said.
FULL INJURY LIST Who's ruled out and who's a test?
"He's had to manage little setbacks and niggles for the last few years at different stages of the season.
"It took a fair bit out of him, bouncing off the fence, but he's really tough, resilient and gets on with it.
"He was definitely below his best (against Hawthorn), he's the first to put his hand up and say that."
The fired-up foundation Giant led the forward-line review following a match in which his club managed five goals total – three of which came from Jeremy Finlayson.
"We've had some really robust discussions over the last couple of days," Miller said.
"Jeremy leads the group really well, this week has been no exception."

Miller praised Finlayson but bemoaned how the Giants' forwards simply "didn't work hard enough".
"Finlayson took his turn to stand up. He kicked 3.2, passed another one off and looked an offensive threat," he said.
"The other five guys we had in our forward line at any one time probably didn't stand up and didn't help each other.
"The effort and intensity just wasn't there. It was fairly uncharacteristic."
