Player Bio

Aidan Corr was recruited by the GIANTS with pick 14 in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft. He is a tall defender who is extremely competitive by nature and spoils aggressively. Corr has good speed and agility for his 194cm frame and uses the ball well by foot. Corr made his debut in Round 6, 2013.
 

The young defender was another of the GIANTS to be struck down by injury in 2014. Starting off in the NEAFL, Corr performed well enough to earn his first AFL start of the season against West Coast in round eight. He kept his place for four games before a shoulder injury requiring surgery ended his campaign in June. The GIANTS are still excited about his potential, with good reason.

The Northern Irishman enjoyed a tidy first year at senior level, making 10 appearances in the GIANTS’ backline. His aggression and attack on the ball is valued at the club and he showed good ball use, capped by a 14-possession effort against Port Adelaide in round 12. Looks to be a long-term prospect.

The Northern Irishman, who moved to Melbourne with his family as a toddler, is a key defensive prospect hailing from the Northern Knights. Corr possesses good speed and agility for his size and is also a strong ball user. Renowned for his aggression, a trait valued highly at the GIANTS, he is another AIS-AFL Graduate.
