Jarrad McVeigh became an assistant coach at the Sydney Swans after calling time on an illustrious career at the end of season 2019.

McVeigh played 325 AFL games, making him the second-most-capped Swan in history alongside Jude Bolton.

The 2002 draftee also co-captained Sydney in the years spanning 2011-2016 – highlighted by leading the club to the 2012 premiership – and won two Club Champion awards (2008, 2013), earned All Australian selection (2013) and made a club-high 28 finals appearances.

He was also named at half-back in the greatest NSW team of all time in May 2019 and is a Swans Life Member.

McVeigh will lead Sydney’s forward contingent in 2021.
