The four-time Coleman Medallist battled a number of niggles throughout the entire 2018 season, but he nonetheless managed to produce a sparkling campaign in his fifth year as a Swan. Franklin booted 57 majors and rounded out the season on 917 to place him in eighth on the all-time VFL/AFL goal-kicking leaderboard. The towering Swan was also named an All Australian for an eighth time and was given the honour of captaincy for the first time in his career. Fittingly, he’s on track to make his 300th AFL appearance in Marn Grook at the SCG in Round 10, with Sydney set to face Collingwood in the Sir Doug Nicholls Round opener.

Draft history: 2004 AFL Draft 1st round selection (Hawthorn) No. 5 overall; 2013 restricted free agent (Sydney).
