Player Bio

Finley’s Mark Whiley was recruited to the GIANTS ahead of the 2010 NAB AFL Draft as one of the club’s NSW zone selections. The Riverina product made his AFL debut in Round 12, 2012 and has played predominately as a stoppage player. Whiley won the GIANTS’ NEAFL Player of the Year in 2013.

The promising defender made only one senior appearance in the first half of 2013, but finished strongly, featuring in six of the club’s final seven games. He is a ferocious tackler, averaging 6.6 for the year, including 12 against Essendon in round 17 and 10 against Collingwood in round 18.

Whiley had some injury issues prior to his first season in the AFL, but overcame them to spend the first half of the year in the NEAFL. The New South Welshman then fought his way into the senior side and made three appearances, capped by a 16-possession, seven-mark effort against Fremantle. The rebounding defender will be chasing a regular place in the side this season.

Another New South Welshman who joined the Giants through the list establishment rules, Whiley is a 190cm rebounding defender who reads the game well. Played in the TAC Cup with the Murray Bushrangers.
