Adam Tomlinson found his way onto the Giants inaugural AFL list through pick 9 in the 2011 National Draft. Drafted as a 194cm key position player, Tomlinson has been used by the Giants to fill voids at either end of the ground, as well as pinch-hitting in the ruck.
Tomlinson made his debut in the Giants first ever AFL game, in Round 1, 2012. His elite endurance and skills saw him spend the next few seasons 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. He notched up his 100th game in 2018, a season where he made a short move up the ground to play off the wing. Tomlinson’s size, athleticism and obvious versatility make him a tough match-up for opponents; the Giants well aware that they have a very capable weapon in their stocks.
