A settling influence down back, Laidler bookended 2016 with a strong first half and a solid finals series. After a hamstring injury sidelined him for three weeks, the 27-year-old fought back strongly in the NEAFL to show just how dependable the former Blue and Cat can be. Most likely in a battle with Aliir Aliir for the third tall spot in the back six but his ability to play on smaller forwards is an asset and he reads the play well, so he’s an important cog in the Swans’ defence.

Draft history: 2008 Rookie Draft (Geelong) No. 32; 2009 AFL Draft rookie elevation (Geelong) selection No. 65; 2010 AFL Draft traded by Geelong for No. 36 (Aaron Young) and No. 54 (Joran Schroder); 2013 delisted free agent (Sydney).

Previous AFL clubs: Geelong (2009-2010, 2 games), Carlton (2011-2013, 24 games)
