Season review: Jack Maibaum

In summary:

Second-year defender Jack Maibaum last week earned a one-year contract extension off the back of a promising season in the NEAFL.

While an injury-plagued campaign limited the 20-year-old to just 17 games, the Victorian stood tall on a number of imposing key forwards when on the park.

Maibaum again also helped the Swans to a NEAFL grand final berth after doing so in his first season at the Club in 2017.

What the numbers say:

Games: 17

Kicks: 104

Handballs: 104

Disposals: 208

Marks: 71

Tackles: 38

Rebound 50s: 33

Best performance:

Semi-final: Sydney Swans v Canberra Demons, Blacktown International Sportspark

Maibaum played a crucial role as the Swans booked their ticket to the big dance with a 56-point semi-final win over the Canberra Demons. The youngster collected 24 disposals, eight marks and booted his only goal of the season.
