Rod Carter

217 games
1 goal


Having begun his career with Fitzroy in 1974, Rod Carter crossed to the Swans where he made his debut in the red and white in 1980. A supremely competitive full-back, he played 217 games for the Swans, and overall 293 AFL games.  His determination and single-mindedness to nullify every opponent were legendary. It is commonly accepted that his career coincided with a golden era of full-forwards, including all-time greats such as Lockett, Dunstall, Quinlan and McKenna, all of whom acknowledged him as one of their consistently toughest opponents. He kicked one much-celebrated goal, and was much loved by the Swans faithful.
