Player Bio

Ian “Bobby” Hill is an exciting and quick forward from WAFL side the Perth Demons. Clever around goal and blessed with an incredible leap, Hill can also play as an outside midfielder like his Fremantle cousins Stephen and Bradley Hill. While Hill is named after his father Ian Hill Senior, the young gun prefers to be called Bobby. The Northam product was given the name by his grandfather as a child because of his love for children's cartoon Bob the Builder. A proud Aboriginal man, Hill is part of the club's RAP Committee.

The GIANTS traded up to select the small forward from Western Australia and were delighted to get him to the club. Hill – like his cousins and Fremantle stars Stephen and Bradley – has blistering speed and loves to use it to place plenty of pressure on the opposition and can play as a deep or high forward. Hill has the X-factor the GIANTS need to bring to their forward half and could quickly become a fan favourite.
