Assumed the role as number one ruckman following the retirement of Mike Pyke and was in All Australian form until a hamstring tear, suffered against GWS in Round 12, curtailed his season. Out for nine weeks, Tippett returned in Round 22 but couldn’t quite recapture the same damaging form in time for finals. He finished with 17 goals from his 17 games. With Sam Naismith now in the senior fold, Tippett may spend more time forward which will provide the Swans another target and more firepower inside 50. One of the game’s most versatile big men and an important player for the Club.

Previous AFL club:
Adelaide Crows (2008-12: 104 games, 188 goals).

Draft history: 2006 AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Adelaide) No. 32 overall; 2013 AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Sydney) No. 11 overall.
