LEON Cameron will coach Greater Western Sydney until at least the next two seasons, Giants chief executive Dave Matthews has confirmed.

Cameron is due to come out of contract at the end of this season but after steering the Giants to their maiden Grand Final appearance last year, the 47-year-old will be in charge until at least the end of 2022.

Matthews said Cameron's record at the helm made him the right person to take the club forward.

"We've committed to him for 2021 and 2022 and we should, we think he's a very good coach and he's been a successful coach," Matthews said on SEN.

"I don't think that gets acknowledged enough. He's taken us to four finals series, he's won finals and there's often this perception, maybe out of Melbourne, that the Giants have been handed things on a plate.

"He's coached against the backdrop of significant injuries, some of the changes to rules and other things have seen us lose some key players to other clubs, so I think he's done a very, very good job.

"He's a good leader and he's got a very good relationship with the players. He's certainly someone we've got every confidence in."

Cameron took the reins of Greater Western Sydney in 2014, having served as assistant at the Giants to their inaugural coach Kevin Sheedy in Sheedy's second and final season in the role.

The Giants entered this year as one of the premiership favourites but have had an inconsistent first half of the interrupted 2020 campaign, with four wins from eight games.

They face Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium on Saturday.
