GREATER Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron knows it sounds good when the list of Giants' midfielders is read out loud.

Hearing the names Dylan Shiel, Lachie Whitfield, Adam Treloar, Callan Ward, Stephen Coniglio, Josh Kelly, Tom Scully, Toby Greene, Ryan Griffen, and now Jarrod Pickett and Paul Ahern makes the Giants suddenly seem a scary proposition.   

"It's exciting. I'm over the moon to have them," Cameron told

The coach has seen glimpses of their individual brilliance but that is not what drives his excitement.

His anticipation is grounded in something more real.

"It's great to have talent," Cameron said.

"They now understand they have to work really hard to make sure that talent can blossom."

Cameron confident young Giants will stay loyal

Cameron says the next step will be taken this summer as the group gears up for what he has already predicted will be a tough pre-season.

Cameron says it's not about completing a monster session or a hard training camp. The words only have meaning if each player maintains high standards every time they turn up to train.

"[It's to] about rocking up Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday. Don't rock up Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, pull out Friday and then be half-hearted on Saturday," Cameron said.

"[Doing that] over week after week, month after month, adds up to a really hard pre-season."

He expects that approach to translate into a midfield with a harder edge that can do what it needs to do to win.

And the Giants coach has a vision of what a tough, successful midfield looks like when they are functioning as an interdependent unit.

"They look at each other in the eyes as a practice at the start of every game and say 'I'm going to go both ways. I'm going to work hard that way and I'm going work hard the other way'. If they're all doing the same thing it has a snowball effect," Cameron said.  

Getting the snowball rolling is the real challenge for everyone at the Giants. Right now it is about convincing players that habits developed in November will help the team win a tight game in June.

In the longer term the challenge is to create a culture that lives and breathes as a football club should, even though the foundations are so new the paint is still drying.

Cameron knows he is responsible for setting the right tone.

"[We're] all here to get better…but we like to have a little bit of fun as well. I don't want to take that side of the game out. We have got some different characters. We have got some fantastic characters [from] different walks of life and that is what makes up any footy club," Cameron said.

Creating a balance is a worthy objective but Cameron emphasises that no corners are being cut at the Giants when it comes to hard work.

He said the experienced players are vital in that respect but he can sense many of the foundation players beginning to lead that charge.

Realistic enough to understand that all the words mean little unless the club is in front on the scoreboard more often than not, Cameron talks about what is required as though he will be able to sense it rather than articulate it when it appears.  

"It's the feeling of winning, the feeling of expectation that floats in," Cameron said.

He said that feeling was most present between rounds 11 and 14 this season, a month of football that provided the template for what is expected from the Giants throughout 2015.

During that period the club bounced back from two 100 plus-point defeats to push Hawthorn and Essendon before beating the Brisbane Lions and Carlton.

Cameron told that although being thrashed by Richmond in round ten came as a shock, he immediately saw it as an opportunity.

"I could see in their eyes [after the Richmond loss] these young lads are determined to get to where they wanted to get to. I knew they would respond," Cameron said.

He believes in his players and he can see a midfield that could dominate.

"The main thing [for the midfield] is just understanding that they are going to show their individual brilliance when games are up for grabs or moments are up for grabs, because they know they can play the game, but it is [a group] just bonding now," Cameron said.
