Player Bio

Growing up in Narrandera in southern NSW, Matthew Flynn was a member of the GIANTS Academy since he was 12 years old. He is a developing ruckman who competes aggressively and is athletic. Agile and courageous, he can push forward and be dangerous as a marking forward. He is excellent below the knees for a player of his size and shows potential with his rucking craft at stoppages. Flynn performed well at the 2015 NAB AFL Under-18 National Championships. Flynn hasn't made an AFL appearance in his first two years at the club but continued to develop and performed strongly in the NEAFL in 2016 and 2017.

Last year was another season of development for the young ruckman, who showed more improvement from his work alongside Shane Mumford and Rory Lobb. Competitiveness has always been his biggest strength, but he showed in the NEAFL last season he has the ability to take a grab playing forward and kicked 14 goals in 18 games. Like all big men, he will take time to mature and learn his craft, but there’s little doubt the promise is there.

The 19-year-old had a season of development in the NEAFL last year and will be looking to get more time in the ruck after his second full pre-season. Flynn's competitiveness impressed the GIANTS coaching staff and he showed his ability as a key forward by kicking 26 goals in 18 games, while also pinch-hitting in the ruck alongside fellow big men Tom Downie and Dawson Simpson.

Flynn is an exciting ruck prospect and adds even more depth to the GIANTS' big man stocks. From Narrandera in southern NSW, he joined the GIANTS Academy as a 12-year-old, can play as a marking forward and is a competitve beast at ground level. Played five games in the NEAFL last year and should come on quickly now he is an on AFL list full time.
