Drafted to Sydney in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft, Rose is a powerful medium forward with excellent hands and an outstanding natural leap. He is a dynamic forward who is good on the lead, a penetrating kick and loves the physical side of the game. He made his AFL debut late in the 2015 season, kicking three goals, and played a final in just his second game of senior football.
The 2016 season proved difficult for Rose to find a consistent senior spot in the Swans’ senior side. His work in the NEAFL was very promising however due to stiff competition and a successful senior side, the highly-competitive and able forward was restricted to just 5 games. However, in his 2016 showing in the seniors, Rose displayed great forward pressure and aggression. In round 11 and 13, Rose had 16 disposals on each occasion and applied 8 and 6 tackles, respectively. The 2017 season proved to serve Rose much of the same situation, solid form yet a highly-competitive environment.
Rose will now look towards the 2018 season where he will hope to make further inroads in obtaining a permanent senior position.
