Geelong players understandably received every Norm Smith Medal vote after their 81-point Grand Final demolition of Sydney – but the best player on the ground was a Swan.

He kicked two goals from 29 disposals, along with 18 contested possessions, 10 clearances, six score involvements, seven intercepts and 583 metres gained, proving he’s a future superstar of the competition.
