The star defender is looking to use the meteoric back end of his 2018 campaign to launch into season 2019. The 24-year-old returned from a lengthy run in the NEAFL to play an important role in the Sydney Swans’ successful push for a ninth-straight finals berth in 2018. Aliir’s athleticism, intercept marking and rebound off half-back saw him wind back the clock to his stellar 2016 season, and he finished his 2018 campaign with an average of 8.17 marks per game to rank eighth in the AFL and top the Swans. Along with Callum Mills, Zak Jones, Colin O’Riordan and a host of other defenders, Aliir is one of a number of Sydney backmen on the rise.

Draft history: 2013 AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Sydney) No. 44 overall.
