Sam Naismith
An ACL rupture and a long list of complications wiped out Sam Naismith’s 2018 and 2019 seasons, fuelling the hunger of the chief Sydney Swans ruckman for a comeback 2020 campaign. The QBE Sydney Swans Academy product is an excellent tap ruckman who’s shown promising glimpses since being drafted in November 2012, particularly as Sydney powered towards the 2016 Grand Final. The New South Welshman had always worn the number 35 before switching to the number 10 for season 2020 in search of a fresh start.

Another endorsement from a Swans player for Horse.

"The turning point came last season when Naismith, still in the familiar position of a footballer in rehab, poured his heart out to coach John Longmire, who is a passionate advocate for mental health.

"I went into his office and said, 'Mate, I need some help, I'm really struggling'," Naismith says. "He was so supportive of that. I think we've got a real good relationship now knowing I can open up to him and tell him what's happening."
