3 Swans become club life members

Three of the Swans best players, Daniel Hannbery, Nick Smith and Josh Kennedy have become Swans life members at the 2016 Bob Skilton Award ceremony after reaching the 150 game mark.

All three surpassed the 150 game requirement in the first half of the season, with Kennedy playing 170 games for the Swans after 13 for Hawthorn.

Kennedy is a 2 time club champion, 2 time All Australian, inaugural Gary Ayres Finals AFLCA winner, and is in the running for a 3rd club championship. He is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the competition and the premier inside midfielder.

Hannebery is a three time All Australian and the AFLCA 2015 player of the year, awarded the coaches of each club. He is vying for this first Bob Skilton medal tonight and is sure to poll well. Smith was an All Australian in 2014 and has been unlucky to miss selection in following seasons.

Since you're here...

... we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading The Swans Blog than ever, but we don't accept advertising, and don't want to do so in the future. Unlike many other news and media organisations, fan forums and fan media, we haven't put up a paywall, or displayed ads - we want to keep our content as open as possible.

The Swans Blog is an independent fan blog and community platform. Our content takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. We do it because we love what we do and we believe our perspective matters - because it may be your perspective too.

If everyone who reads our blog, who likes it, is supporting it, our future would be much more secure.
