Whilst I have high hopes that Sunday won't be his last game for us here is the opportunity to acknowledge his commitment to the club over many years. Very few players would have played more diverse positions than he has in his time at Swans. He continues a long tradition at Swans of quality fullbacks.

Best wishes in your retirement and hopefully Sunday he and Notte will get the performance from Swans that both deserve.

If it wasnt for injuries and suspenions over the years he would have goine past Stan Nowotny's total and probbaly nudging 300 games. A mighty effort seeing he made his debut in 2002, which makes him the last player currently playing to be coached by John Todd.

Well played Tallan, an outstanding career, great clubman, 15 years of wonderful service to Swans. He has always been a favourite of supporters because he always gives his best and his celebrations after wins are legendary. He has been a thorn in the side of many opposition forwards over the years and was very rarely beaten. The 2010 premiership was a fitting reward for him given all the tough years he has played in. I hope the boys can extend his career by at least one more week and send him out in style.

A true WAFL great imho, a player respected by all club supporters for his skills and his passion for the WAFL and his club, I hope he can go out with at least 1 finals win to finish off a wonderful career.
