Ilaua and Awatere. Heart and Soul of the Giants

No surprises that the Central Giants have retained team players Alex Awatere and Jono Ilaua for the 2023 Premiership Season.

Ilaua is a Premiership magnet with his most recent success at  Central Giants in 2021. His presence immediately impacts on the clubs cultural drivers and ensures that enjoying the game is at the forefront of their quest for their third Premiership victory. Awatere, currently represents the North City Demons in the Wellington AFL competition as he works to rebuild the club over some tough seasons. The former New Zealand Falcons player will look to reignite his impact on the Giants playing group and assist with the young playing potential from the Wellington region.
