Isaac Heeney has featured in coaches votes for a fourth week in a row after the Sydney Swans faced Richmond on Sunday.

Despite a five-point loss to the Tigers, the star midfielder collected four votes after a standout performance in a young side. The 27-year-old was instrumental right across the ground and finished the game with 27 disposals, four tackles and two goals. 

Late in the second quarter Heeney managed a brilliant fend off and right-foot snap to steal a brief lead going into half-time. 

The QBE Sydney Swans Academy product sits first on the overall ladder with a total 32 coaches votes. Second position trails by nine points.
