SWANS’ KUGLER CONTINUES TO BUILD ON ’16 ROTY
Brand-new to footy when he first appeared at a Swans training session, 2016 club Rookie of the Year Austen Kugler has continued to evolve as a pillar of the Bloods’ young core.
In a stellar season highlighted by strong performances throughout the campaign, Kugler has shown a tacit ability to rise to any big-game situation.
As he’s become a scoring threat from anywhere on the rectangle, Kugler’s rock-steady presence in midfield keyed countless passages of excellent football during the Swans’ 7-4 2018 Summer Premiership Season, while a developing knack for booting 10-point ‘supergoals’ worried defenses every time out.
His continuing emergence surely makes Austen a candidate for year-end honors at the side’s Awards Night, Saturday, October 13.
Kugler and the Swans will return to action October 27, in the 2018-19 Winter Season Opener.
