Player Profile

Lewis Melican is a young key defender with enormous promise. The Victorian was rookie-listed by the Sydney Swans in November 2014 and enjoyed a breakthrough 2017 season en route to winning the club’s Rising Star award. He kept St Kilda great Nick Riewoldt to just 10 possessions and one goal in Round 18 to claim an AFL Rising Star nomination. Melican has battled a number of injuries in his time in red and white but didn’t suffer any setbacks in 2019. Draft history: 2015 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 52.

On the back of my success with the Luke Parker hype thread, I bring you my next Nostradamus moment:

This kid is a gun. Was he good in the intraclub? Yes. Wasn't TDL better? Yes, and?
Did I confuse him for Hewett more than once? None of your business.

Avoid embarrassment and get on board this unstoppable steam-wagon now.

Was on the wagon after only seeing him train a few weeks backs ;)

But seeing as he was on the radar of the Hawks in the rookie draft and is a Key Position Defender, I'm more than happy to jump aboard this wagon

Sounds like a pretty good selection. This year at least one of X.Richards, Aliir, Melican or McLaren really needs to step up as I suspect by the finals in 2015 one of them will be in the best 22, or at least will be needed in the best 22.

I have an automatic distrust of any male that is good looking. I assume they have made a deal with the devil at some point and are naturally evil :p

Hopefully he made a deal with the devil to be an unbeatable key defender for us over the next 10 years! :thumbsu:

The Melicopter would be so painfully poor to have as a nickname. I sincerely hope a Swans player is watching this thread so they can adopt it quick smart.

I like these rookies doe. Melican, McLaren and Newman. I reckon all three are going to be around for a while.

I would be the most trustworthy guy in existence then.

Oh and all aboard the Melicopter for the joyride
