Gallery: Plugger's first day on the job

March 15, 2017 11:47 AM

The Sydney Swans welcomed football royalty back to Moore Park on Tuesday in the form of the one and only Tony Lockett.

The man commonly known as Plugger kitted up for his first day as goal-kicking coach during the Swans' training session at Tramway Oval.

Those looking on from the boundary line may not have recognised the champion goal-kicker who holds the record for the most goals kicked in the competition's history.

The 51-year-old, who was later honoured at the 2017 Hall of Fame and Guernsey Presentation, looked in superb shape as the likes of Kurt Tippett and Sam Reid tapped into the superstar's knowledge.

His technique and pinpoint accuracy, which yielded 1360 goals over his 281-game career with St Kilda and Sydney, was on show.

When a man who's kicked 1360 goals tells you what to do, you listen.
