Rampe among the stars

Star Sydney Swans defender Dane Rampe shovels a handball in Saturday's clash with Essendon.

Sydney Swans co-captain Dane Rampe has earned selection for AFL.com.au's Round 16 Team of the Week.

The star defender was sublime in Sydney's narrow loss to Essendon at the MCG on Saturday afternoon, posting 23 disposals, gathering eight marks and playing a stand-out role on the Bombers' tall and small forwards.

Rampe joins West Coast's Brad Sheppard, Port Adelaide's Tom Clurey, GWS's Zac Williams and Hawthorn's James Sicily and Jarman Impey in the Team of the Week's back six.
