Player Bio

Background: Pre-NMFC

An explosive and versatile midfielder, Aaron Hall has had a rollercoaster career to this point. 

After initially being overlooked by Tasmanian representative sides and subsequently the National Draft, Hall was recruited by the Gold Coast Suns with pick 7 of the 2012 pre-season draft, having starred for Hobart in the TSL.

Hall made an impact early at the Suns, playing in Round 1, and 8 games total in his debut season. 

He established himself in the Suns’ best 22 as a forward in 2013, playing 22 games and finishing 8th in the best and fairest.               

Hall was in and out of the team throughout 2014 and the first half of 2015, until an injury to star Gary Ablett Jnr saw him gain an opportunity in the midfield. 

The Gold Coast number 33 excelled in his new role, having at least 24 disposals from Rounds 17-23, andearning three Brownlow votes in the Round 19 ‘Q-Clash’ with the Lions.

Hall began 2016 in blistering fashion, and he became just the third player to poll three Brownlow votes in each of the first three rounds of a season.

He impressed many with his pace and penetration through the midfield, showcasing match-winning abilities.

A career-best season saw Hall average 27.8 disposals a game, and secure a fifth-placed finish in the Suns’ Club Champion award.

Hall was again one of the Suns’ best performers in 2017, as he averaged 25.6 disposals throughout the year. He was exceptional in Round 17 against eventual premiers Richmond, collecting a career-high 40 possessions. 

Injury and form kept the star Sun to just six games in 2018, but if he can return to his 2016-2017 form, North Melbourne may have found a new match-winner.

After crossing from the Gold Coast, Hall played in the first six games of the AFL season. 

In Round 2, he collected 26 disposals and kicked a brilliant goal, highlighting why the Roos had recruited him.

Hall took the second half of the season away from football to focus on his mental health, but he returned to training in early August.
