Player Bio

Local NSW product Zac Williams was selected by the GIANTS with pick 55 in the 2012 NAB AFL Rookie Draft. The athletic half-back from Narranderra in southern NSW was the first PM Capital GIANTS Academy graduate to play senior AFL when he made his debut in Round 5, 2013.
 

One of the surprise packets of the GIANTS’ 2013 campaign, Williams found the going tougher early in his second year at the club. Struggling for consistency, he played only two AFL games in the opening 15 rounds. The small defender bounced back well late in the season, playing six of the final eight games.

Picked up late in last year’s rookie draft, 2013 was supposed to be a development year for the youngster from Narrandera in country NSW. Instead, Williams’ terrific form in the NEAFL led to his AFL debut in round five against Gold Coast and he made 11 senior appearances, including six in succession late in the year.

A quick, tough midfielder, Williams can also play at half-back or in a back pocket and represented NSW/ACT in 2012. Still raw, the teenager from Narrandera in country NSW also spent time in the NEAFL and has a bright future.
