PLAYER BIO

Academy product Will Setterfield became a GIANT with pick 5 in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft. Setterfield, who was part of the GIANTS Academy since the age of 13, combines a solid inside game as a midfielder with strong run-and-carry and he rarely wastes a possession. The former Caulfield Grammar boarder is the prototype for the new-age midfielder given his 191cm height and athleticism, and can play all over the ground. After overcoming an ankle injury, Setterfield would make his AFL debut in round 18, 2017.

The highly rated mid elder suffered a serious ankle injury early last year in the NEAFL which saw him miss most of the season, but eventually returned to play two senior games. Looked composed on debut against Richmond in round 18 and again against Fremantle the following week before he copped a concussion. The on-baller averaged 25 disposals, one goal, 7.6 tackles and 4.7 clearances in his seven NEAFL matches, with his quality skills and work in tra c his best assets. With his first full pre-season under his belt, he will be right in contention for a spot in Leon Cameron’s team in round one.

The first of the GIANTS' Academy young guns taken last year, Setterfield didn't have a great 2016 season due to injury, but has serious potential once he returns to full fitness. A tall midfielder who showed a love for winning the contested ball at stoppages last year, the Albury teenager has drawn comparisons with young star Marcus Bontempelli.
