Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: Best and Fairest 2014; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2011.
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.

Just like the season before, 2016 was one to forget for the former No. 1 draft pick. David Swallow didn’t play a senior game, dogged by a chronic left knee injury he aggravated late in the pre-season.

He came back late in the year to play two NEAFL games, but again was struck down – this time by a hamstring strain. Swallow has played only six games since he was crowned club champion in 2014, and with the question marks lingering over the make-up of the SUNS’ midfield, a full season from the silky midfielder would be a huge boost.
