Debut: 2006
Recruited from: Norwood (SA)
Brownlow Votes: 3

The 250-gamer remains a key pillar of Sydney’s defence ahead of his 15th season as an AFL footballer. Grundy’s ability to shut a powerful opposition forward out of the game, his cool head under pressure and the invaluable direction he provides the Swans’ younger players both on and off the ground, make him a crucial element of coach John Longmire’s side.

Draft history: 2005 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 42; 2005 rookie elevation (Sydney).
