Burnett steps up for the Giants

Tristan Burnett to return for his sixth season with the Giants

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 is expected to receive a call up to the NZ All Stars as they prepared to take on the NZ Falcons in April 2023, and is likely to take on a leadership role..

Ineligible for International Cup 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.
