Player Bio

West Australian Nathan Wilson was pre-listed by the GIANTS as a 17-year-old in 2010. The small forward from Mandurah made his debut in Round 1, 2012. Wilson was recruited from the Peel Thunder in the WAFL.
 

Used as a small forward in his early days, Wilson was shifted into defence at times last season. Blessed with athleticism and leaping ability, he produced excellent form in the NEAFL and forced his way in for six AFL games. In such a talented young outfit, he may forge a role as a switch-hitter who can plug gaps where needed.

Injury concerns limited Wilson to just four appearances in 2013, including three successive games between rounds 20-22. But his talent is undeniable and the small forward signed a new long-term contract during the year as he committed his future to the young franchise.

A real talent with an eye for goal, Wilson played nine games in his first year at the top level. A small forward at 185cm, he has natural athleticism and speed and was also named an emergency no less than nine times. The West Australian also showed impressive tackling pressure and if he can continue his rate of improvement, he looms as a tough match-up for opposition sides in the coming years.

A medium utility with excellent skills, GWS has high hopes for the youngster from Western Australia. Has an excellent natural leap and plenty of speed. In 2010, he played 18 matches for Peel Thunder colts in the WAFL, averaging 16 possessions and four marks per game.
