Player Bio

Dylan Shiel is a classy on-baller who assured his place on the GIANTS' list with an eight-goal performance from the midfield whilst playing school football for Caulfield Grammar against Haileybury College on a wet Saturday in June 2010. The former Dandenong Stingray was pre-selected by the GIANTS as a 17-year-old and moved to Sydney in 2011 to begin his AFL career with the GIANTS. Shiel made his AFL debut in Round 1, 2012 and was nominated for the NAB AFL Rising Star Award later in his first season. Shiel was named in the GIANTS’ emerging leaders group before the 2014 season.
 

With his injury troubles a thing of the past, Shiel emerged as a key member of the Giants’ midfield, playing 21 games and averaging just under 20 possessions a contest. Capped by a 25-disposal, three-goal effort against the Western Bulldogs in round 15 and fourth place in the best and fairest, Shiel continued his progress towards becoming one of the AFL’s elite on-ballers.

Following foot problems and a pre-season appendectomy, Shiel did well to make it to the starting line for round one. The talented midfielder played 12 of the club's opening 13 games, underlined by a 21-possession, two-goal effort against Geelong that led to a Rising Star nomination. His foot problems would re-appear late in the season, however, sidelining him for the final nine games of the year. If he can get on top of his injury issues, Shiel is one of the brightest onball prospects in the game.

One of the brightest prospects on the Giants' young list, Shiel is a tough, talented onballer who cites fellow Caulfield Grammar attendee Chris Judd as his idol. Averaged 30 disposals per game with Dandenong in the 2010 TAC Cup.
