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 one to forget for Hoskin-Elliott, who failed to go on with the promise he showed in the previous year when he kicked 26 goals in 20 games. Did not recover from a pre-season shoulder injury and finished with just three goals from 11 appearances. Has all the tools to be a star if he can find the consistency to match.

The speedy youngster entered the year with 19 games under his belt over two seasons and a reputation for talent yet to be fully realised. He ended it with a further 20 games to his name and a standing as a star on the rise. Kicking 26 goals, second only at the GIANTS to Jeremy Cameron, he was one of their biggest improvers. Looks ready to emerge as a star of the competition.

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.
