PLAYER BIO

AT A GLANCE

Junior club: Mandurah Central (WA)
Recruited from: Peel Thunder (WA) via pre-listed selection in 2010 to GWS
AFL debut: Round 1, 2012, GWS v Sydney
AFL clubs: GWS, Fremantle (via 2017 trade period)
Career Brownlow votes: - 

SUMMARY
A diehard Freo fan, the former Giant arrived at Fremantle during the 2017 Trade Period. Wilson is expected to slot into Fremantle’s defence at half-back, utilising his impressive leg speed and accurate long kick.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Michael Prior)
Nathan has fitted in really well since coming across from GWS. He’s trained well all summer. We look forward to him playing in our back six.
