A versatile tall who can play at either end of the ground, as well as pinch-hitting in the ruck, Adam Tomlinson joined Melbourne from the Giants at the end of 2019.
Drafted as a 194cm key position player by Greater Western Sydney with pick 9 in the 2011 National Draft, Tomlinson made his debut in the Giants first ever AFL game, in Round 1 of 2012.
Tomlinson’s elite endurance and skills saw seen him spend time in a range of positions until the 2016 season where he made a semi-permanent move to defence and played a more consistent role each week.
His best seasons came in 2017 and 2018, playing all but one game, and his final game for the Giants was in their 109 Grand Final loss to Richmond.
In his first year at the Dees Tomlinson celebrated his 150th game milestone. Tomlinson’s size, athleticism and obvious versatility make him a tough match-up for opponents, and Melbourne is well aware that they have a very capable weapon in their stocks.
