As reported earlier this week the 25-year-old opted for LARS (Ligament Advanced Reinforcement System) in 2013 to repair his ACL. With the artificial ligament beginning to fail earlier this season Swan has opted for a traditional reconstruction this time round, sidelining the NEAFL Representative until at least 2019.


An integral part of the Canberra Demons family on and off the field Swan’s teammates have paid tribute to the former Queanbeyan Tiger ahead of today’s operation:
