Player Bio

Pick number four in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft, Will Hoskin-Elliott made his debut against the Swans in Round 1, 2012. Hoskin-Elliott has a dangerous combination of electric speed and terrific endurance that makes him a headache for opposition teams trying to match up on him.
 

Last season was another year of development for Hoskin-Elliott, who made nine senior appearances to take his career tally to 19. He had injury and form issues and suffered a nasty concussion late in the season, but the fleet-footed youngster is making good strides in his career.

Considered among the most talented rookies on the GWS list, Hoskin-Elliott had difficulty adjusting to the rigours of the AFL, playing just three of the team's first 16 matches. But he worked hard on his game and then exploded into life in the final seven weeks of the season, capped by a five-goal, 16-disposal effort against Gold Coast in round 20.

A dashing winger, the Giants are almost giddy about Hoskin-Elliott's potential. More than happy to have a bounce and take on the opposition, he also possesses a booming right boot and stood out at the NAB AFL Draft Combine. Only played 12 games with the Western Jets in 2011, yet he still managed to finish second in the club's best-and-fairest count.
