A highly touted midfielder from his junior football days, Dom Tyson was selected by the GWS Giants with Pick 3 in the 2011 National Draft. He made his debut in the Giants inaugural AFL game in Round 1 2012, earned a Rising Star Nomination that year, and played a total of 13 games over 2 seasons with the club.
Tyson returned to his home state of Victoria ahead of the 2014 season, joining the Melbourne Football Club. Tyson showcased his ability in a thrilling season where his ability to win contested ball and clean disposals were key, and he was recognised as the runner-up Best and Fairest. He was also recognised as Melbourne’s Best Young Player for 2014. After 5 seasons and 94 games with Melbourne, Tyson made a move across town to join North Melbourne for 2019.
Despite injuries marring his first season at the Kangaroos, Tyson will add class and experience to their growing midfield for the seasons to come.
