Footy Phil: Adam Tomlinson

Adam Tomlinson speaks about playing in a more permanent position in 2019.

Adam Tomlinson is the latest GIANT to feature on The Footy Phil Podcast.

Speaking to GIANTS co-captain Phil Davis and GIANTS Media’s Alison Zell, the wingman explains how he developed his love for running and his abnormally large lungs. 

The 25-year-old also speaks about his interest in golf and cricket (and his man-crush on Trent Copeland), while detailing how dog Bonnie is recovering from another ACL reconstruction. 

After plenty of banter, Davis asks the serious questions of Tomlinson and how he feels when his name is the subject of trade rumours year-on-year. 

The pair recount their days living together in the inner-west suburb of Lilyfield before the two have an in-depth recap of the GIANTS’ win over St Kilda at UNSW Canberra Oval.

Tomlinson, Davis and Zell talk about their love for Thursday night footy and look across at how the competition is positioned after seven rounds – plus when it’s appropriate to make the big calls on All Australians, Brownlow voting and premiership favourites.

And it wouldn’t be a current podcast without a little Game of Thrones chat at the end.
