PLAYER BIO

One of the GIANTS’ three inaugural co-captains, Canberra-born Phil Davis was one of the first un-contracted players to join the club after being drafted to the Adelaide Crows. The key defender was picked at selection 10 in the 2008 NAB AFL Draft from North Adelaide, after he moved from the ACT to South Australia with his family at the age of 14. Playing in the #1 guernsey, Davis was awarded the GIANTS Best Defender Award at the 2012 Kevin Sheedy Medal.
 

The only Giant to play every game in 2012, Davis was struck down by a back injury last season, forcing him to sit out nine games
 in the middle of the year. It naturally affected his form and the 23-year-old will be hoping to get back to his best this year. He will benefit greatly from the defensive reinforcements that have come on board during the off-season.

Davis was the first uncontracted player to join GWS and it proved a wise recruiting decision. The key defender was the only Giant to appear in all 22 games in year one. It was a steep learning curve for Davis, who was asked to defend some of the AFL's best forwards week after week. But he deserved his co-captaincy in the club's first year, accepting his role with no fuss and showing improvement across the season.

The former Adelaide defender was the first uncontracted player to announce he was joining the Giants and has relished his move to Sydney. At 197cm, Davis possesses terrific size and also has leadership qualities. Sure to be a defensive mainstay for many years to come.
