Height, Weight:
Profile: One of this year's most explosive line-breakers. Rowles breaks games open with his run, with his speed with ball in hand as good as any in the pool.

The Swans used pick four in the Rookie Draft to lock in Rowles, an attacking midfielder from the Bendigo Pioneers
Swans General Manager – Recruiting and List Strategy Kinnear Beatson said the drafting of Rowles and Maibaum added depth to the club’s list.
“Brady Rowles has only been in the NAB League system for one year but has already forced his way into the Vic Country team and played two of their four games in the AFL Under-18 Championships,” Beatson said.
“What we really like about him is his ability to run and carry the footy, and he’s got genuine pace. But it’s also his willingness and intent to get across and add a number to the contest, which (coach) John Longmire was impressed with when watching his highlights.

Junior club: Mildura? huh. wonder if he knew Dylan before he left.
If so co-incidence or not. Its cool the club is pairing up interstate new commers.
played footy against dyl in under 14s or so before Stephens went to school in Adelaide. Mildura and red cliffs have a strong rivalry.

Rowles is a great kid. Stoked for him
