Player Bio

Journeyman Sam Reid first began his AFL career in 2008 after being drafted to the Western Bulldogs. He played 10 games for the club before joining the GIANTS as an uncontracted player in 2011. Injuries limited him to 14 games in his two seasons at the club and persistent shoulder issues forced him into retirement at the end of 2013. Reid remained at the club as a Development Coach and captained the NEAFL side. After two years of strong performances in the NEAFL, Reid was placed on the GIANTS’ rookie list ahead of the 2016 season. Reid has taken full advantage of his second chance, playing 19 games, including 13 in 2017. Reid has played predominantly as a forward but has also been used as a tagger to great effect.

The journeyman played 13 senior games last year and showed his versatility by playing as a defensive forward and small defender, while also moving through the midfield in a tagging role.

Worked his way on to the senior list with outstanding and consistent NEAFL form and proved to be a handy option across half-forward in six games late in the season. A ready and willing competitor when called upon.

After retiring at the end of the 2013 season, Reid spent the next two years in a development role at the GIANTS while also captaining the NEAFL side, where he showed he still has the ability to play senior football. At 26, his experience around the club will be vital.
