The co-captain was all class as usual, playing mainly at half-back where his cool head and brilliant ball use were a major asset. McVeigh also spent time as a midfielder and occasionally crept forward where his two final-quarter goals helped Sydney to a thrilling four-point win over Hawthorn in round eight. His 266 games has him fifth on the Swans’ all-time games list and a full season this year should see McVeigh overtake former teammate Ryan O’Keefe in fourth place. Sydney’s on-field general is also a major driver of its standards off it and a magnificent leader for the club’s younger players to learn from.

Draft history: 2002 National AFL Draft 1st round selection (Sydney) No. 5 overall.
