Player Bio

Born to a Scottish father and Papua New Guinean mother, Aiden Bonar became a GIANT with the club’s first pick at the 2017 NAB AFL Draft (pick 11). Bonar is a powerfully built, versatile tall who excels at stoppages and has a burst of speed away from congestion. He is strong overhead and very competitive and after overcoming two ACL injuries during his junior football career. Bonar made an impressive debut in his first season in 2018, kicking five goals in his four games.

The GIANTS’ No. 1 pick at the 2017 NAB AFL Draft took time to work into his debut season and didn’t have a huge impact at senior level but showed enough to suggest he’ll be a beauty. His contested work and tackling was outstanding in the NEAFL and he carried that into his four AFL appearances playing as a permanent forward, and also kicked five goals. Another pre-season should see him develop his tank which should help him push for more games.

The GIANTS were aggressive during last year’s NAB AFL trade period in a bid to get into the first round of the draft and attract Bonar to the club. A strong-bodied forward with the potential to play as a midfielder, the teenager is an exciting prospect and with a big pre-season could push for an early season debut.
