Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Bridgetown (WA)
Debut: 2010
Recruited from: Swan Districts (WA)
Brownlow Votes: 7

Jetta’s stunning 2012 campaign was always going to be a hard act to follow and so it proved in a tough year for the young star.

Having kicked a team-high 45 goals the previous season, he managed just seven in the opening 10 rounds before injury struck. 

A persistent shin problem forced him to miss 12 consecutive games, before he returned for the Swans’ three finals. 

He then represented Australia in the International Rules Series in Ireland.

With a full pre-season under his belt, Jetta will be aiming to recapture his best this year.

Draft history: 2009 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Sydney) No. 14 overall.

2014 Coaches Call

His 2013 season was disappointing. He started slowly and then once he got going he got injured. Later in the season he did well to get back and to get ready to play, but obviously 2013 was really disappointing for both Jetts and the club injury-wise and we missed him.

His pre-season has been a mixed bag. His training was going OK but then he hurt his knee and had a bit of an ITB problem, which has pushed back his pre-season preparations.

We hope in 2014 that he can get his body right as quickly as possible and then get going, enjoy his footy and play well for us. He’s so important for the team and adds a different dimension for us.
