By the time he played his first game in the red and white of the Sydney Swans in 1995, Tony Lockett had already had a brilliant career at St Kilda. His performances for Sydney, however, would cement his reputation as the greatest full-forward ever to play Australian Rules football. In his first season with the Swans, he won the Club Champion award, and earned All-Australian selection. 1996 saw him All-Australian again, as he won the Coleman Medal on the way to kicking the Club into its first grand final since 1945 with his famous point after the siren. He completed the Coleman Medal / All-Australian double again in 1998, but the most glorious moment of his career came in 1999 when he broke Gordon Coventry’s long-held goalkicking record of 1299 goals, kicking his 1300th goal at the Sydney Cricket Ground against Collingwood. He retired at the end of 1999, with a career tally of 1357 goals, having twice kicked more than 100 goals in a season during his time in Sydney. His brief return to football in 2002 was cruelled by injury, but he remains one of the greatest players to have graced the football field. 98 games and 462 goals for the Sydney Swans saw him named at full-forward in the Swans Team of the Century. He was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame in 2006 and elevated to Legend status in 2015.
