Player Bio

Nick Haynes was drafted to the GIANTS with pick seven in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft. The former Dandenong Stingrays forward made his debut in Round 10, 2012 playing through the midfield and up forward. Haynes has great agility, takes a good overhead mark and shows very good running and aerobic capacity.
 

After a strong finish to 2013, Haynes carried that form into 2014. Creating run off half-back and able to play on tall and smaller forwards, his development was on track before disaster struck in the round eight clash with West Coast in Perth, with a broken ankle ending his season. He will be hell-bent on making up for lost time.

Haynes was one of the Giants’ major success stories of 2013. Playing just two games over the opening 12 rounds of the season, he sparked into form from that point on in the GWS backline and was regularly named among the club’s best players in the closing weeks of the year. With a new contract in tow, look for more from the talented Haynes this season.

Just two years after temporarily quitting the sport, Haynes was a top 10 NAB AFL Draft pick. But he took a little while to adjust to senior football with the GIANTS. Haynes didn't make his debut until round 10 and was then used in a variety of positions by coach Kevin Sheedy. Rotated forward and back, the lightly built Haynes showed vast improvement in the closing weeks of the season.

In just a couple of years, Haynes has made a meteoric rise from park footballer to No.7 NAB AFL Draft pick. Quit the game before returning in 2010 and his improvement since then has been remarkable. Exceptional overhead, the 192cm Haynes has the height and skills to hold down a wing or half-forward spot. Just needs to add some more bulk to his slight 78kg frame.
