Player of the Year - Round 3

Each round we'll be posting our votes for The Swans Blog's Player of the Year award.

The players will be voted on their performance on the day regardless of previous form. The player with the highest number of votes at the end of the season, wins. Simple.

Round 3 saw the Swans take on the Giants in Sydney Derby XIV, with the Swans winning their first home game of the season by 16 points.

In a see-sawing battle, the Swans survived relentless pressure before piling on 7 unanswered goals through the third and fourth quarters to lead by 33 points.

Another Giants comeback drew them to within 10 points with 6 minutes remaining, but Franklin snuffed out any hope they had of winning, booting the Swans last two goals of the game.

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.
