We've recruited talented South Australian prospect Matthew Roberts with Pick 34 of the 2021 NAB AFL draft.

A hard-working midfielder with an ability to play forward, Roberts is known for his quality football IQ and having a keen eye for goal. He has been highly touted through his professional development in recent seasons.

Consistently hitting the scoreboard with his accurate left boot, he is also revered for his hard-work ethic and competitive nature, while also proving to be tough in the contest with an ability to play outside.

Thriving in all competitions he's played, including SANFL League and SANFL Reserves, he also represented South Australia at consecutive Under 16 national Championships.

Roberts provides the Swans with sheer versatility and will be a welcome addition to the Bloods with his determination to work hard, on and off the field.

What he said:

"I am lost for words, and am over the moon to be given an opportunity and so grateful for it," Roberts told Fox Footy.

"It' going to be good fun (moving states) and I am looking forward to getting there and getting stuck into it."
