Emerging star Sam Taylor has added another three years to his contract with the GIANTS, keeping him in orange and charcoal until at least the end of 2025.
The Perth native was already contracted until the end of 2022 but has opted to extend his stay with the club who selected him at pick 28 in the 2017 national draft.
The 22-year-old is enjoying a career-best season, taking on - and beating - some of the best key forwards in the competition.
Against Tom Hawkins in round 21, Taylor had 21 disposals, which included 17 intercept possessions and eight intercept marks.
Softly spoken but ultra-competitive, Taylor said he was thrilled to re-sign with the GIANTS.
“I’m really excited to extend my contract and stay a GIANT,” he said.
“The club has been with me since I was drafted and they’ve supported me through all the ups and downs, particularly last season when I couldn’t play footy for most of the year.
“I strongly believe in the direction the club is going and we have a young and exciting group who are hungry for success.
“I want to become the best player I can be and contribute to that success moving forward.”
GIANTS General Manager of Football Jason McCartney said:
“Sam’s an emerging star of the competition and we’re thrilled to extend him for another three years.
“He’s an important player for us and it’s another endorsement of the culture of our football club that he opted to re-sign early.
“It was great working with Andrew McDougall and the team at Corporate Sports Australia to ensure this got done in a timely fashion for both Sam and the club.
“We’re excited about what the coming years hold for Sam and the GIANTS.”
