Malceski’s well-documented injury troubles were a distant memory in 2013 as he played every game and earned a richly deserved place in the initial All-Australian squad. 

Gaining more metres out of defence than any other player in the AFL, he averaged 22 disposals and four marks a game in one of his best years in the competition. 

He secured life membership of the Swans after chalking up his 150th game in the club’s semi-final victory over Carlton.

Draft history: 2002 National AFL Draft 5th round selection (Sydney) No. 64 overall.

2014 Coaches Call

His 2013 season was very good. He was our leading rebounding inside-50 player for the year and was close to his career-best form.

His pre-season has been a little interrupted with injury before Christmas, but he’s back into full training with the group again now. We’re confident his slower start hasn’t set him back.

We hope in 2014 that he can have another big year. We really look forward to seeing him dashing from the half back line again this year and hope he has another stellar season.
