Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: Best and Fairest 2014; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2011, 2nd Club Champion 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2014 votes 5; career votes 9.
Junior Club: Rossmoyne (WA)/East Fremantle (WAFL)
Draft History:
2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 1 overall.

Following two seasons plagued by knee injuries, Swallow returned triumphantly last year to play 18 games and finish second in the Club Champion award. The combative inside midfielder averaged 22 disposals per game in 2017 and is one of the most admired and respected players at the club.

 
Swallow is the SUNS’ best contested ball winner and will be crucial to the team’s success in 2018. The 25-year-old got through the preseason unscathed this year and is expected to once again be one of the club’s best performers. He is due to play his 100th game this season and will be one of Stuart Dew’s most reliable charges after retaining his place in the leadership group once again.
