Player Bio

Junior Clubs: Modbury (SA)
Debut: 2006
Recruited from: Norwood (SA)
Brownlow Votes: 3

The veteran key defender is one of the Swans’ most reliable servants. He didn’t miss a game in 2017 and made 20-plus appearances for the ninth consecutive season. He was also a joint-winner of the Paul Roos Award for Best Player in Finals alongside Kieren Jack. Grundy, Jarrad McVeigh and Dane Rampe have a lot to offer young defenders like Callum Mills and Lewis Melican as they continue to develop.

Draft history: 2005 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 42; 2005 rookie elevation (Sydney).
