"At the moment he's retiring at the end of this year"


Sydney coach John Longmire has revealed veteran Jarrad McVeigh still plans to retire at the conclusion of the season, despite his good form.

McVeigh was one of the Swans’ better players last night in his side’s win over Carlton, picking up 18 disposals and kicking a goal.

“He’s been really good, at the moment he’s retiring at the end of this year, that’s what the plan is,” Longmire told SEN’s Crunch Time.

“We haven’t had any discussions contrary to that, but he’s been playing well, he’s really contributing every week, but we haven’t had any of those discussions yet.

“The plan was set at the end of last year and we haven’t spoken about any adjustment to that at all at this point.”

The 33-year-old was nearly moved on by the Swans last year, but remained and is showing good form to this stage in the season.

Sydney will travel to Victoria to take on St Kilda at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night.
