Ward compiled 32 disposals, eight marks, five clearances, two goals and a single tackle Saturday as GWS fell to Brisbane 129-65 at Gabba.
ANALYSIS

Not on injury list
MGreater Western Sydney Giants
April 13, 2021
Ward was left off the injury list after hurting his elbow during Round 4 against Collingwood, per the Giants' official site.
ANALYSIS
Ward is coming off an impressive performance with 37 disposals in the win over Collingwood and he'll head into Round 5 with plenty of confidence.
Hurts hand in win

April 10, 2021
Ward logged 37 disposals (16 kicks, 21 handballs) and made six marks during Saturday's 90-60 win over Collingwood. He also injured his hand, according to Callum Twomey of AFL.com.
ANALYSIS
Ward was one of the stars of the show as Giants grabbed their first win of the season and stymied a dynamic Magpie midfield. With a couple of rounds in which he barely reached 20 disposals, it's worth being a little careful when selecting Ward as 37 disposals in one match is high for any player, and he could regress to a more average spot.
Fractures finger in loss

Finger
August 23, 2020
Ward suffered a compound fracture to his middle finger on his left hand during Sunday's loss to West Coast Eagles, and he'll have to undergo surgery, according to Mitchell Cleary of afl.com.
ANALYSIS
Ward has had injury problems all season and it's kept him from making any substantial impact. He'll have to await tests during the week to see how many matches Ward will miss.
Kicks match-winning goal
MGreater Western Sydney Giants
August 7, 2020
Ward ended with 14 disposals (seven kicks, seven handballs), two marks, one tackle and one goal in Friday's 59-55 victory over the Bombers.
ANALYSIS
The Giants roared home in the final term to snatch a four-point victory thanks to a somewhat dubious goal, courtesy of Ward. He was awarded a free-kick with less than a minute remaining after copping an apparent high shot. Replays suggest he may have exaggerated the contact, much to the ire of the Bombers fans. Ward himself had a somewhat productive game but is far from a consistent fantasy target.

Ward (knee) will return to action Friday versus Essendon.
ANALYSIS
Ward missed out on the Giants' last three contests while working his way back from a knee issue. He has gotten up in time for Round 10 and is slated to work as a full forward alongside Jeremy Finlayson and Jeremy Cameron.
