Bougies are a popular fixture in the AFL, and a fixture in their own backyard.
The Giants have signed a trio of bougys for the 2017 season and it has left many fans wondering whether they are getting a legitimate first-team option.
Former Giants midfielder Michael Jennings, who played under Greg Bird, and Ben Griffiths, who had an illustrious career at Essendon, are the first to be released by the club, while James Frawley has also departed.
Bougies: James Farragut, Jordan Murphy, Jordan Kahu, Jordan Thompson, Luke Mutch, Josh Riewoldt, Nick Dal Santo, Matt McQuaid, Jordan Lewis, Ben McGlinchey, Josh WalkerBougie Medical Instruments has a history of success in the game.
It has had success in developing bougied players from the ages of 10 to 18, and has helped them develop into the elite level of footballers they are today.
A key component of the team is former Essendon and Melbourne footballer Matthew Mutch.
Mutch was a member of the Giants from 2013 until his retirement in 2017.
He is one of the most successful players in club history and a player who has played in every AFL game since his debut in 2012.
When it comes to the bougying, the Giants are hoping to get the best of both worlds.
They have also secured some solid young talent with the signing of Matthew McQuays, who will join the club from Collingwood.
McQuays is a former Melbourne and Western Bulldogs defender and will bring experience to the club.
Riewoldts is a promising young midfielder and is a strong competitor who will help the club maintain its competitive edge.
Lloyd has been a standout player for the Giants for years, and the club has a lot of faith in him.
Bougys: Jordan Murphy (2017), Josh Rui, Josh Schache, Jordan Brough, Ben McIntosh, Michael Jennings (2018), Josh Walker (2018)The Giants are excited to add some quality to their team and the prospect of signing players like Josh Schaches, Jordan Riewolds and Josh Schachter will give them some quality depth at key positions.
Schache is an experienced veteran who was a key part of the Bulldogs premiership winning side in 2017, and will be a key component to the team.
Johnson will add depth to the forward line, and is likely to play on the wing with a couple of other players.
McIntosh is another talented midfielder who will bring a good mix of experience and experience in the midfield, and should be able to compete for the number one jumper spot in the side.
McMahon will be one of several midfielders that the Giants have in the squad.
Walker is another promising youngster with experience in both AFL and senior games, and he will provide another strong option for the club in the ruck position.
Mutch, Johnson and McIntosh have all been part of a number of winning clubs over the past decade, and while the Giants will be hoping to improve on their 2016 season, it is certainly possible that they will be among the top teams in the competition this year.
