Player Bio

Born in London to an Australian mother and an African father, Idun was raised in Australia and played his junior football in Geelong before representing Victoria Country in the NAB Under-18 National Championships. A developing key defender who thrives in one-on-one contests, Idun is a versatile player and - thanks to his speed - is able to play tall or small. Standing at 190cm tall, Idun has the ability to play forward and also showed his capability in the ruck during his time at the Geelong Falcons in the TAC Cup.

The GIANTS used future picks to get back into last year’s draft to select Idun, a well-built key defender who has speed off the mark and looks to be an exciting prospect. Born in England, Idun is athletic and versatile, as shown when he went forward late last season and kicked goals for the Geelong Falcons. He’ll find it tough to break into the GIANTS backline this year but will get an opportunity if he can play some consistent football in the NEAFL.
