Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: Career votes 6.
Junior Club: Northern Knights (VIC)
Draft History: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 20 overall.

Brayden Fiorini took a major step forward with the limited football he was able to play in 2018 after a stress reaction in his ankle restricted the midfielder to just 11 games. The 21-year-old started the season consistently, playing in the first six rounds until the injury struck without dropping below 19 disposals. He then had to wait until Round 19 to return and played in the last five games to end the season.

Fiorini showed class and composure when he was able to take the field, playing between half-back and the midfield in his disjointed 2018 season. He averaged 22 disposals, 4 marks and 4.5 tackles and was the SUNS equal-highest vote-getter in the 2018 Brownlow Medal with five votes. He is yet to string together an entire season at senior level, but if Fiorini can stay healthy he will have a big role to play in 2019.
