Tom Papley

Player Profile

Tom Papley swapped his plumbing tools for a Sherrin when the Sydney Swans sprung a draft surprise in 2015 – and the pocket-rocket forward has since become a crucial member of coach John Longmire’s side. Papley has played 20 or more senior games in every one of his four full seasons in the AFL and was at his best in 2019, topping Sydney’s goal-kicking leaderboard and finishing fourth in the Bob Skilton Medal voting. The Gippsland Power product took on more time in the midfield in 2019 and is likely to again split his time between the forward line and centre bounce this year. Papley was selected in the AFL Players’ Association’s 22Under22 team in 2017. Draft history: 2016 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 12; 2016 AFL Draft rookie elevation (Sydney).

papleys manager confirms he will stay.....where he is signed for 3 more years so cant actually leave
Unfortunately contracts these days don't always mean anything. Players leave midway, and he had a good reason last year. But I said this earlier this year. He wasn't leaving. Clearly the reasons he wanted to no longer exist or are necessary. Either he is a good actor, because everything I have seen of him this year does nit portray someone that does not want to be there. I just had a vibe things had changed.
