Brennan just swanning in
Sydney Swans defender Luke Brennan will be at today's top of the table clash at Fitzroy Oval between the Coffs Swans and Port Macquarie where he will be heavily involved in the day's proceedings.
Brennan will be presenting the premiership flag to the Coffs Swans under-18s team who won the title last year as well as presenting specially minted Australian Football 150 years medals to the players judged best afield in all of today's three matches.
Brennan's arrival in Coffs Harbour this weekend from Sydney is indicative of the the amount of travel he has undertaken so far in his career.
Raised in the western Victorian town of Horsham, the 23-year-old travelled many kilometres each week to play in the top flight statewide under-18 competition where he played for North Ballarat, a two hour drive away.
Selected at number eight in the 2002 national draft, Brennan spent four years at Hawthorn before crossing to the Swans at the start of the 2007 season.
While he'd love to pulling on the Big V of the Victorian team in tonight's Hall of Fame match at the MCG, Brennan's appearance at Fitzroy Oval today to talk football with grassroots fans is evidence of the growing strength of the AFL North Coast competition.
