Picked up in a trade deal with three other former Giants, Phillips proved to be a valuable acquisition in his first season at Ikon Park, sharing the ruck responsibility with Matthew Kreuzer. Was in excellent form in the opening six rounds before hurting his hamstring, then returned to make a contribution later in the season. Originally from Tasmania, he was a member of the Giants' inaugural squad, but struggled to secure a regular spot in the seniors in his five years with the club. Good tap ruckman with a nice pair of hands and an excellent kick for goal.

Draft history: 2010 Rookie Draft selection (GWS Giants) No.4 overall; 2012 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (GWS Giants) selection No.97; 2015 NAB AFL Draft traded by GWS Giants for No.33 (Mitch Hibberd), No.63 (Rupert Wills), 6th round selection (not utilised) and 2016 1st round selection No.17 (Jarrod Berry).
