  Season 2015     Review: by @collingwoodmagpies (Instagram), @TheMightyPies (Twitter)  
  Games played   21

Fanbloodytastic. That is one word to describe our champion Dane Swan's 2015 season. Coming off a year he describe as 'putrid', Swanny was keen to make amends & that he did. Averaging 29 disposals across 21 games for the year, remaining almost completely injury free, Swanny was back to his best.
Damaging as ever in the midfield but crucifying up forward. Swanny was able to average a goal a game this season, placing fear into the opposition's eyes each time he went forward. It was a season from Swanny that made every Collingwood fan proud. His year was justified on Brownlow night where he polled 18 votes and took out leading vote getter for the Pies.
Could he upset Pendles at the Copeland Trophy? We'll find out Friday night. I think he'll take it out. He's rated as my best Magpie for season 2015. What I expect from our King next year? I expect with the inclusion of Treloar most likely that Swanny with his age will play predominantly up forward along with little bursts in the midfield. Let's hope he still has many years ahead. To sum it all up, Swanny is back and nothing could be better.
