‘I’ve dealt with tougher things than Grand Finals’

One week on from notching game 250, Sydney co-captain Jarrad McVeigh is set to face the opponent that’s been at the centre of the two biggest moments of his football career.

In 2012, McVeigh felt the elation of premiership glory as his Swans defeated the Hawks by 10 points in the Grand Final.

Two years later, he experienced the pain of losing a Grand Final for the second time in his career. But as McVeigh told Channel 7’s Saturday Night Footy team recently, he’s “dealt with much harder things than losing Grand Finals.”

The feature on McVeigh, in which the 30-year-old opens up about footy and his personal life, can be seen in full, below.
