Rumours of Buddy Franklin‘s retirement are greatly exaggerated.
“It was about last season in general and also about how we move forward. He’ll continue to receive support from professionals that know how to deal with it better than I do. And they’re indicating he will be back for pre-season training and that his support will be ongoing.”
“He’s been through a challenging time but he feels good and looks healthy. Primarily he’s looking forward to getting back into training.”
Franklin is not expected to attend the Swans Best & Fairest function on Friday night.
