After missing most of 2019 with an ACL tear, Ward returned in round two this season and was solid in the Giants' win over Collingwood last week with 14 disposals, five tackles and a goal.

Sheridan will be joined by Lachie Keeffe and Daniel Lloyd as inclusions against the Hawks, with Zac Williams (hamstring) and Sam Taylor (back) to miss.

Phil Davis has been named in the side after overcoming hamstring tightness.
