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: - 

From the recruiter (Brad Lloyd)
Wilson is a very talented young West Australian who has progressed strongly through his time at GWS to be a high level player. We really like his elite speed and rebound off halfback and he has a high level of ability to kick the ball over long distances. His qualities and attributes will be a great addition to our team.

Wilson was pre-listed by the Giants as a 17-year-old in 2010 and made his debut in round 1, 2012 in the inaugural game for GWS against the Swans at the SCG. Drafted as a small forward, Wilson moved to the Giants defence in season 2015, where he cemented his spot as a regular in the GWS backline. The elite rebounding defender played 24 of a possible 25 games for the Giants in 2017, notching up 77 career games over six seasons. A stand out of Wilson’s game is his run-and-carry, with the speedy defender ranked second in the AFL for total metres gained behind Richmond’s Dustin Martin, averaging over 500m per match in 2017.
