One of the great draft stories continues to improve season after season, with Rampe playing 72 games in his first three years at senior level. The departure of Nick Malceski left the door open for the powerful left-footer to take his game to the next level and he didn’t disappoint in the back six. Had a remarkable fortnight in round 10 and 11 when he racked up a combined 58 touches and took 26 marks against Gold Coast and North Melbourne and was rarely beaten in a one-on-one contest all year. There were some anxious times with his disposal coming out of the defensive 50, but Rampe is now a mainstay of the Swans’ defensive set-up and finished sixth in the best and fairest.
