Reports from AFL.com.au state that midfield star Dan Hannebery has come to terms on a long-term contract extension agreement with the Sydney Swans. It’s believed that Hannebery has signed on the dotted line and will remain with the Swans until the 2021 football campaign has concluded. The 24-year-old’s former deal was set to expire at the end of next year. It’s believed that several Victorian clubs were interested in the player, but they’re now out of luck after he agreed to a new five-year term. Hannebery could be an excellent choice for some fans and bettors next year when it comes to a CrownBet AFL Best and Fairest wager.
Hannebery has been in fine form so far this season as he is averaging career bests in disposals per game at 30.5 as well as contested possessions at 11.6, clearances at 4.9 and inside 50s with 5.3. He was also named to the mid-season’s All Australian squad by AFL.com.au and will likely be named to the real team later on this year. Although Nat Frye is favoured to win this year’s Brownlow Medal with the CrownBet bookmakers at $1.62, and current medalist Matt Priddis is second at $10, Hannebery is listed as third favourite at $12. The swans’ midfielder is also ranked second with 61 votes for the AFL Coaches Association Award. Fyfe is the current leader with 90. All of the above players are guaranteed to attract a lot of wagering attention next season when fans and punters make their annual CrownBet AFL Best and Fairest bets
