Greater Western Sydney’s chances of winning their first preliminary final have been dealt a further blow, with star half-back flanker Lachie Whitfield ruled out of Saturday’s game with Collingwood.

2012’s no.1 draft pick has just had his appendix removed and won’t recover in time for the MCG encounter.

With Stephen Coniglio (knee) and Brett Deledio (calf) already on the sidelines and Toby Greene launching a last-ditch appeal against his suspension, the news was the last thing Leon Cameron needed to hear ahead of the season-defining clash.
