Had a late start to last year after rehabilitation from off-season surgery took longer than expected. While it was below his usual lofty standards, McVeigh was still a crucial voice and playmaker in the Sydney Swans’ defence. He averaged more than 20 possessions in 21 games and gave the Swans’ backline valuable experience and a constant source of attack from half-back. Relinquished his role of co-captain after six seasons in charge, but his leadership and experience will still be vital in a side featuring the AFL’s fourth youngest list.

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