Adam Tomlinson will exercise his free-agency rights after eight seasons at the GIANTS.

The 26-year old has been an integral part of the GIANTS, having played 140 games since debuting in the club’s first ever game in round one, 2012.

Tomlinson has also had a profound impact off the field having built a number of strong connections across the Western Sydney community, especially through his role as an ambassador for Ronald McDonald House at Westmead.

“I’ve loved my time at the GIANTS and I’d like to thank the club for the opportunities they’ve given me,” said Tomlinson.

“Being a part of the club from day one is something I’m extremely proud of and no doubt I’ll look back on this period of my career fondly in the years to come.”

GIANTS General Manager of Football Wayne Campbell paid tribute to Tomlinson.

“Adam is a much loved member of the club and the relationships he’s built with players, staff and members will continue for years to come.

“His versatility on the field has been a huge asset to the side and his willingness to put others first both on and off the field is a characteristic that will stand him in good stead for the future.

“Despite pulling on a different jumper next year, Adam and his family will always be a much-loved part of the GIANTS family.”

The AFL’s free agency period commences today.
