The long awaited arrival of Dan Giancola on the football field has arrived.

The affable place kicker stepped off the bench on Sunday morning and kicked his first field goals of Blue Bombers training camp.

The 39-year-old, who has been out of pro football for five years, came to Winnipeg early in the spring to workout for the Bombers coaching staff and was signed to a contract and invited to training camp. But a groin injury has kept Giancola out of the action for all of camp and with the team's first pre-season game coming up on Wednesday time was running out.

Giancola kicked about 25 field goals from the 30 and 35-yard lines before strapping an ice bag to his upper right thigh and returning to his spot on the bench.

"It felt great. I talked to the trainers about kicking and went out and hit some. I was only kicking about 50 per cent but it feels great and right now I'm pain free," said Giancola. "I'll go in now and get in the cold tub and we'll see how I feel later."

The Bombers will take to the field again late Sunday for the last of their two-a-day practices this camp. Only one workout is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday will be limited to a pre-game walk through.

The Bombers host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Canad Inns Stadium on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
