Sydney coach John Longmire last year said if there was one player who best epitomised the spirit of the Swans, it would be veteran defender Nick Smith – and it’s easy to see why. The 30-year-old All Australian plays a lock-down role on the opposition’s most damaging small forward – the likes of Eddie Betts and Robbie Gray – every week, a job that earns little credit on the stats sheet and scarce applause from outside Swans walls. Smith notched his 200th match in 2018 and, after being named in Sydney’s eight-man leadership group, the 2019 season shapes as another all-important campaign for the 2012 premiership Swan.

Draft history: 2007 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 15; 2008 rookie elevation (Sydney).
