Vic Metro / Oakleigh Chargers / Xavier College / Sydney Swans / St. Kilda
Dan Hannebery was selected by the Swans with pick 30 in the 2008 National Draft. His courage and ability to outwork opponents and win contested ball were evident early, and he was rewarded with 7 games in his first year at the club. In 2010 Hannebery shone, playing 21 games including 2 finals, and winning the AFL Rising Star award.
Hannebery has proven to be a consistent and durable player, missing only a handful of games through injury from 2011 to 2017. Along the way he played an integral part in the Swans 2012 Premiership, the midfielder arguably best on ground on the day. He also helped book their place in the 2014 and 2016 Grand Finals, and was named in the All-Australian side in 2013, 2015 and 2016.
In 2018 Hannebery played his 200th game for the Swans, before returning home to Victoria at the end of the season to join the St Kilda Football Club.
Bringing his leadership and experience to the club, as well as setting the standard with his work ethic, Hannebery made his long awaited debut in Round 14, 2019. Slotting straight into a midfield role, he was back at his dominant best and will be a valuable asset to the young Saints.
