Growing up in Narrandera in southern NSW, Matthew Flynn was a member of the GIANTS Academy since he was 12 years old. He is a developing ruckman who competes aggressively and is athletic. Agile and courageous, he can push forward and be dangerous as a marking forward. He is excellent below the knees for a player of his size and shows potential with his rucking craft at stoppages. Flynn performed well at the 2015 NAB AFL Under-18 National Championships. Flynn didn’t make an AFL appearance in his first year but continued to develop and performed strongly in the NEAFL, taking the 2016 NEAFL Mark of the Year.
