The 2013 season was one of missed opportunities for the Irishman. 

With the Swans missing key pieces in their forward line, Walsh broke into the team against Fremantle in round eight and showed good signs early in his second appearance against
Essendon a fortnight later. 

But disaster struck in the first quarter, when he tore his hamstring from the bone in an injury that brought his second year in Sydney to an abrupt halt. 

Returning to full fitness following a long rehab program, he will be keen to grab his chances this year.

Draft history: 2010 Rookie Draft international selection (St Kilda) No. 69; 2011 NAB AFL Draft traded by St Kilda for No. 35 (Daniel Markworth) and No. 68 (Beau Wilkes).

2014 Coaches Call

His 2013 season was unfortunately pretty disappointing. He suffered a serious hamstring injury and had reconstructive surgery during the year after playing a couple of senior games.

His pre-season has been slow, because he’s still in the recovery phase so he’s a little way away. We hope to get him back playing early on in the year.

We hope in 2014 that we can get him back out on the park as soon as he’s ready so that he can continue to improve as a player.
