Career

Shaun Tapp was recruited to Glenelg as a key defender from NT Thunder.

Tapp is the son of a former Sydney rugby league star. He played at senior level with the Western Magpies in division two of the Queensland State competition in 2006. In 2006 he was also a member of the star-studded Queensland U18 side that won the Division Two championship undefeated at the 2006 Australian U18 Championships under coach Craig McRae.

Tapp switched to the Zillmere Eagles in 2007, represented Queensland against WA in Townsville as a 19-year-old in 2008, and won the Sam Gilbert Medal as Queensland’s best player in the U21 clash with the VAFA U21s in Melbourne in 2009. He was runner-up to Lucas Matthews in the 2009 Aspley B&F despite a bad ankle which restricted him through much of the latter stages. He rejected interest from SANFL clubs to head to Darwin in 2010 playing for the NT Thunder in the North East AFL League.
