PLAYER BIO

AT A GLANCE

Recruited from: Norwood (SA)
Draft information: Rookie Draft 2017 - pick 21
Debut: Round 11, 2018 v Collingwood
AFL clubs: Fremantle
Career Brownlow votes: -

SUMMARY
An elite runner, Giro posted the second best result in the yo-yo test, a running and endurance test, during the national and state draft combines, behind only fellow draftee Andrew Brayshaw. At Fremantle, the midfielder continued to impress with his running, placing second in the club’s 2km time trial in January.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Adam Read)
Stefan has had a really good summer. He has strong endurance, came second in the 2K time trial behind Tommy Sheridan. He’s an elite runner, just looking to add a bit of size to him. Really keen with the footy and has lots of promise.
