Player Bio

Background: Pre-NMFC

Dom Tyson was highly touted by those that watched him progress through the junior ranks.

Playing in Greater Western Sydney's maiden season, he debuted in Round 1 against cross-town rivals Sydney and was handed the substitutes’ vest.

The midfielder went on to play another nine games in his first year, and earned a Rising Star nomination in Round 23 against North Melbourne after recording 26 disposals, 7 clearances, 5 marks and a goal.

Expected to take major strides forward in his second year, Tyson was struck down with a PCL injury late in the summer of 2012, which limited his 2013 season to just three games.

The then 20-year-old requested a trade home to Victoria at the conclusion of 2013, and it was Melbourne that was fortunate enough to acquire his services, in exchange for draft picks.

Tyson made an immediate impact on his new club, playing 22 games in his first season, five of which he recorded more than 30 possessions.

Tyson finished fourth in the club’s best and fairest in 2016, behind Jack Viney, Nathan Jones and Max Gawn.

In 2017 and 2018, Tyson found himself playing 19 and 17 games respectively and was an important part of Melbourne’s best 22.

The ball-winning midfielder should be a welcome addition to the Roos’ midfield.
