Who’s the next best for the decade

I presume a lot will say buddy 2013-2019

Goodes faded then retired mid decade

I think I’d look at the defence and go a bit left field and say grundy

Smooch or Reg for mind. Probably Reg by an ‘accidental’ fumble over the line.

Extra context re: best players of the last decade (drawn from this thread https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/bob-skilton-medal-history.1209040/)

Most top 10 finishes in the Bob Skilton Medal 2010-2019:
Josh Kennedy 10
Luke Parker 7
Dan Hannebery 7
Jarrad McVeigh 7
Nick Smith 6
Kieren Jack 6
Dane Rampe 5
Heath Grundy 5
Jake Lloyd 4
Lance Franklin 4
Ryan O'Keefe 4

Most top 5 finishes:

Josh Kennedy 9
Kieren Jack 5
Jarrad McVeigh 5
Luke Parker 5
Ryan O'Keefe 3
Dan Hannebery 3
Heath Grundy 3
Lance Franklin 3

As everyone has suggested, Kennedy is head and shoulders above the rest. Parker & McVeigh probably have the next best claims as per this evidence.

And while I'm here blowing his trumpet


Not sure there will ever be a Swans player who I love more than Kennedy.

I love him because it feels like he has never let us down in a big game

Tried my hand at an all-decade team. Certainly subjective and incredibly difficult to narrow down to only 22.

B: Luke Hodge - Alex Rance - Josh Gibson
HB: Corey Enright - Harry Taylor - Shannon Hurn
C: Dane Swan - Josh P. Kennedy - Gary Ablett
HF: Luke Breust - Lance Franklin - Steve Johnson
F: Eddie Betts - Josh J. Kennedy - Jack Riewoldt
R: Todd Goldstein - Sam Mitchell - Scott Pendlebury
INT: Joel Selwood - Patrick Dangerfield - Nathan Fyfe - Nick Riewoldt

And about 15 other names I wanted to include...

Wouldn't mind us making an offer to Zac Williams. Out of contract, GWS still have Cameron to lock away. Might get a nibble but won't know if we don't ask
