Burnett steps up for the Giants

Tristan Burnett is currently in the best form of his career.

It’s no surprise that the Central Giants have secured the Premiership winning midfielder as a member of their leadership group for the 2022 AFL New Zealand Premiership season.

Burnett provided a magnificent performance in the 2021 AFLNZ Premiership Grand Final where he was named best on ground in their Grand Final victory.

A key member of the Giants over the past five seasons, Tristan Burnett then received a call up to the NZ All Stars as they prepared to take on the NZ Falcons in September 2021, the NZ All Stars coaching staff selecting Tristan Burnett and Andriu Sucu as Co-Captains.

Ineligible for NZ selection, Burnett is one of the hardest working players in the country. The reigning Auckland AFL Best and Fairest winner is a consistent ball runner who gives it his all in every game.
