    Swans tie down coaching panel for 2019 - AFL.com.au

    TADHG Kennelly will take control of the Sydney defence next season after replacing fellow premiership backman Rhyce Shaw in the club's coaching structure.

    2005 flag winner Kennelly, who was the Swans' NEAFL coach in 2018, will take over the role vacated by 2012 premiership star Shaw, who joined North Melbourne's coaching panel over the off-season.

    Jeremy Laidler will take the reins of the Swans' reserves side alongside Lloyd Perris, another former Sydney player, who has returned to the club as a development coach.

    Perris, who had three knee reconstructions while he was on the Swans rookie list and failed to play a senior game, has been coaching with Sydney University’s NEAFL team.

    Good to hear Lloyd Perris is back at the club, a career cut down by injury. Think he was the last player we took under the old scholarship scheme.

    Like 707, I'm glad to see Lloyd Perris back at the club. He's carving out a career in football though his own playing was cruelled by injury. He's thus very aware of the whole person - something that we RWOers can too easily forget when we talk about list-cloggers and denigrate players who leave for other clubs. In August this year he tweeted, "Since I was 16 I've had to learn to look after my mental health as my physical body continually let me down. Now I'm combining both of these and doing the Noosa Tri for Team Beyond Blue." (https://twitter.com/LloydPerris/stat...26616071860224) For me, that understanding - and his personal experience - of the range of stresses that aspiring professional athletes experience is likely to be a positive in his coaching.

    I note with interest that he is also quite a reader (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/...6-lloyd-perris). Mixes Hemingway, Steinbeck, Harper Lee, Kerouac, Tim Winton, etc, with titles like The Mentor, Win Forever, and The Captain Class: The Hidden Force that Creates the World's Greatest Teams.

    I'm happy to take a punt on a bloke like that. Might not work, but we might just be developing a gem. His leadership qualities have long been evident. Back in 2013, this was written about him: he was "the inaugural winner of the Cameron Ling medal and won the Ben Mitchell medal this year for his performances in the AIS/AFL Academy. Almost more importantly, the medals were awarded based mainly on leadership qualities rather than skill." (https://www.afldraftcentral.com.au/2...perris/http://)

    Let's wish him all the best.

    Yes, looking at that list, he does seem to have an enquiring mind. What with the Johann Hari, Yuval Noah Harari, Clementine Ford, Chloe Hooper, Malcolm Gladwell, etc. Though let's just hope that he read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, as a curious period piece, rather than something aspirational.

    I’m not sure even Ben Cousins would see FALILV as “aspirational”, although it does sound like an entry in the Guinness Book of Records!

    Not so much the staff but the perennial question, the plan: The perennial finals team that can't win the flag in 2019 under "current model".

    Absolutely. Welease the Wed and White!
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)
