Giles is a journeyman of the competition, having been on the books of four different clubs throughout his career. Initially, Giles was drafted by Port Adelaide at the 2005 national draft but he was made to wait for his chance at the big time until 2012. The ruckman would make his debut for Greater Western Sydney in the club’s first ever game against the Sydney Swans, marking the occasion with a goal. Having seen his opportunities limited at the club, Giles would make the move to Essendon in 2015 before flying west to join the Eagles a year later. He is serving as an AFLPA delegate for the first time in 2017.
