Allies/Sydney Swans – MID – Swans academy
Snapshot: A hard-nosed, in-and-under midfielder prepare to do the dirty work for his teammates. Finds plenty of the ball and is a strong tackler. Not the fanciest, but a very effective footballer.
The Swans have coughed up picks 43 and 47 to match the bid.
Cleary is another that I have rated more highly than the consensus. I think he will be a 200+ game player for Sydney.
He’s the engine of a midfield. The bloke who will do the dirty work to make his more flashy teammates shine. That’s what he did for the Allies in the Championships win, and that’s what he’ll do for the Swans.
