The details:

Name: Tanner Bruhn
Position: Midfielder
Drafted from: Geelong Falcons, NAB League / Newtown / Geelong Grammar
Height: 183cm
Weight: 74kg
DOB: 27/05/02

A midfielder who starred for Victoria Country in the 2018 Under-16 National Championships averaging 17.3 disposals and winning both its MVP award and All-Australian honours. He reads the game exceptionally well and has very good fundamentals with his clean hands, strength overhead along with his ball use by hand and foot. An excellent contested ball winner but injury interrupted his 2019 season playing just three games at the end of the year including the Futures game on the MCG on AFL Grand Final day. Looked impressive in NAB AFL Academy camps for Victoria Country over summer suggesting he was set for exciting season.

Tanner is a top end talent who was too good to pass up. While predominantly a midfielder, Tanner has shown before he can play down back or in attack and that versatility will help him as he looks for senior opportunities. He is driven and a super competitor – attributes we place a very high importance on. - National Recruiting Manager Adrian Caruso

Could be a gun, could be this year's Aidan Bonner / Jye Caldwell and be called home in 2 years. Not an unreasonable selection - indeed potentially very exciting if it comes off - but the jury is out right at this moment.

Welcome to GWS Tanner.

Draft night and just after is a bit funny ... emotions running all over the place. Hopefully he arrives at the club, loves it, and gets plenty of games.
