Bret Thornton Joins the Giants as Number One Pre-Season AFL Draft Pick

The Greater Western Sydney Giants have selected former Carlton player Bret Thornton with their number one pick in today’s NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft.

Thornton, 29, joins the Giants after 188 matches with the Blues. General Manager Graeme Allan said Thornton’s experience and versatility would be a great asset for the club.

‘‘Together with Stephen Gilham, who we traded from Hawthorn, he will provide tremendous support for our young players but also the likes of Phil Davis and Chad Cornes in defence,’’ Allan said
