A solid year of football for Brayden Fiorini saw him finish the year 5th in Gold Coast’s Best and Fairest, his highest placing in his short career to date.

Plagued by injuries in the past, Fiorini finally got a consistent run of football in 2019, missing just one game with knee soreness in Round 8.

Promoted into the leadership group this season, the 22-year-old took the added responsibility in his stride and put in a career-best season in the red and gold.

Fiorini averaged 25.4 disposals, 4.2 marks and 4.8 tackles per game this year, culminating in his selection in the 22Under22 squad.

Best game:

Fiorini had a career-high 38 disposals in Round 9 against Port Adelaide. Add to that his four marks, five tackles and a goal and the match was easily his best this season and possibly the best of his 47-game career.

Moment of the season:

Joining the leadership group was a highlight off the field but one of his best goals this year was this precision shot against the Crows at Metricon Stadium.
