Chad Warner was drafted with Pick 39 in the 2019 National Draft. A hard working midfielder, Warner thrives on contested football where his strengths are his physicality and contested work.
Warner had a strong 2019 across State and National level. He averaged 19 disposals, 7 tackles and 4 clearances across the Under 18 Championships which Western Australia eventually won, while during his WAFL Colts season he averaged 27 disposals. Slotting in to the demands of AFL football, Warner made his debut for the Swans in Round 6 of the 2020 season.
