Stats: Martin Mattner's Career Stats (AFL Tables)
Profile: The Swans major recruit over the off season from the Adelaide Crows. Was down in form in 2007, and was dropped for the Eliminational Final against Hawthorn. Mattner could be well suited in teaming up with Tadhg Kennelly across half back at the SCG in 2008. Was one of the Crows best in a Qualifying Final win over the Fremantle Dockers in 2006 and the Swans were keen to secure a player who could run the lines. Only needs 2 more games to bring up his 100th AFL game of his career.

Retired on 6th Jun 2013, after a stellar career. Mr 1% made a name for himself doing the small things. Became an integral part of the stingy back 6, and worked tirelessly to help out his team mates to repel the ball when it entered the Defensive 50. Mattner had been plagued by a degenerative hip condition for a number of years, but it has become more troubling in recent times. The 30-year-old has not played since being subbed from the round seven match against Hawthorn. He trained on Tuesday but remained hampered by the hip condition.
