Player of the Year - Round 4

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 4 saw the Swans defeat the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night, in a nail-biting, heart stopping 7-point win.

In a see sawing battle that saw multiple lead changes, the Swans regrouped in the second half and went on a game-changing 6-goal run.

The Bulldogs were never out of the contest and fought back twice after the Swans twice opened up two goal leads.

Florent kicked the winning goal for the Swans with just 25 seconds remaining on the clock, marking a speculative clearing kick by Heeney from deep in defence, and running into an empty forward 50 with Tim English trailing.

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.
