Victorian Lachie Whitfield was selected by the GIANTS with pick number one in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft. He is a classy medium midfielder with rare awareness and decision-making ability complemented by skills either side with hands and feet. Whitfield made his AFL debut in round one, 2013 and was nominated for the NAB AFL Rising Star award in his first season. Whitfield has been a mainstay of the AFL side since his debut, playing key roles in the club’s four finals campaigns.
A move to an unfamiliar backline position in 2018 saw the young star elevate his standing in the game, becoming one of the most dangerous half-backs in the competition, earning his first All Australian honours and taking home the Kevin Sheedy Medal as club champion.
