Player Bio

Adam Tomlinson is a versatile tall who can play at either end of the ground but has developed as a key forward in the first few years of his career. After being selected by the GIANTS with pick nine in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft, Tomlinson made his debut against the Swans in Round 1, 2012. With impressive speed and agility for his size, the Victorian was recruited from Trinity Grammar School and the Oakleigh Chargers.
 

If Tomlinson’s first year in 2012 was a little disappointing as he adjusted to life at AFL level, it was quickly forgotten in a stunning campaign in 2013. Featuring in 17 games, he topped the club with 127 marks for the year, including a club-record 14 against Adelaide in round seven. Averaging 16 touches for the season, his size, athleticism and versatility make him a nightmare match-up for opposition sides.

Tomlinson came into 2012 renowned for his athleticism and his ability to play at both ends of the ground. But the Giants appeared to have difficulty at times knowing where to play the talented teenager. The 193cm utility played four of the opening five games of the season, but would finish with only nine for the year. With his skill set and marking ability, however, it is only a matter of time before he makes an impact.

At 193cm and 88kg, Tomlinson was one of the most athletically gifted players in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft class. Capable of playing forward and back, he also has great running ability for his size and terrific skills. Another of the Giant's former Oakleigh Chargers, Tomlinson was also a member of the 2011 AIS-AFL Academy.
