A tenacious tall defender who loves to spoil, Aidan Corr has the size and strength to take on the game’s best key forwards and is a valuable backman for the GIANTS.
Born in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland Corr emigrated to Australia with his family at the age of three, and was recruited by GWS with pick 14 in the 2012 National Draft. The athletic defender was an exception junior, crafting his trade for the Northern Knights and the AFL Academy.
Debuting for the GIANTS in Round 6 of 2013, Corr went on to play a further nine games for the season. While his 2014 season was cut short with injuries, 2015 saw him return to play 19 games as a key defender. Despite his 194cm frame, Corr has good speed and agility and uses the ball well by foot. His key skills were on full display in 2017 where he played 23 games and a key member of the GIANTS team that made the preliminary final.
A versatile player in an ever-improving side, Corr is key member of the GIANTS back six as they hunt for their first premiership.
