According to Jarrad McVeigh, the co-captain of the Sydney Swans, the hype surrounding the club’s young recruit Isaac Heeney is well deserved. The 18-year-old Heeney has just recovered from a bout of tendinitis in his knee and it now looks as if he’s ready for the first round of the home and away season following an impressive showing in Sydney’s NAB Challenge matches. To wager on the Swans’ season opener you may want to check out the CrownBet AFL Odds first.
Heeney was selected in last year’s NAB AFL Draft with the 18th overall pick even though many experts believed he would be taken in the top five. The Swans were glad he was still available when it came their turn to pick and know him well since he graduated from the team’s development academy. The teenager has prepared well for the 2015 campaign and McVeigh said he’s already earned the respect of his Sydney teammates. Be sure to look over the CrownBet AFL Odds during the 2015 season before backing your favourite teams and players.
McVeigh recently spoke with afl.com.au and remarked,
“Heeney’s three games have been really impressive so it’s good to have guys pushing for positions. We’ll see how the round one team pans out, but the Swans supporters will definitely see him play this year. We’re excited for him.”
Heeney, a midfielder/forward, has been wearing the number five jumper which was vacated recently by Ryan O’Keefe, the Norm Smith medalist in 2012. He appeared in all three of Sydney’s preseason contests and booted three goals so go along with his 49 disposals. McVeigh added, “He’s got a ready-made body for the AFL and he knows our systems after coming through the academy. They learn what’s required to play at this level so he’s come off a really good base and done everything we’ve asked of him.” There are numerous wagering options and markets to choose from this year after while looking over the CrownBet AFL Odds.
In other Swans news, it looks like Lewis Jetta will settle in a new role thus year as a running defender to replace Nick Malceski who moved to Gold Coast. Jetta has been getting used to his new position during the preseason and McVeigh is confident the West Australian will play up to his usual fine standard again in 2015 as he’s also a good attacker. The co-captain said Jetta has remarkable kills and speed and loves to take players on.
