Harry Cunningham couldn't crack into the side that went all the way to the Grand Final in 2022, but he's been a mainstay for the Swans in 2023.

"It was frustrating, but I just tried to continue to enjoy my footy and having that mindset has helped me to try and get better every week," he said.

"I'm very privileged to be able to play the game I love, and have loved since I was four years old. Even though I wasn't playing last year, I felt like I was able to help in whatever way I could.

"Helping the younger guys with their progression to take the next step. I think that was the approach I took last year when I was out of the team."

"I can take some positives from the way I came back and worked my way back into the team."

Cunningham had kicked two goals from 12 possessions before he was forced from the ground late in the third quarter against the Saints due to a partially torn the Lisfranc ligament in his right foot.

Sydney coach John Longmire said Cunningham would be in a moon boot in the short term, but would not need an operation to fix the problem.

"It's really unfortunate for him. He's been in very good form and really important for us, so it's a bit of a setback," Longmire said.

"Fortunately he's avoided surgery, which is a good thing because that would mean the season."

"Whether he's kicking goals off half-forward, he's played wing, he's played inside mid, he's played down back and on the weekend he had a run-with role with Stephen Hill, who's one of the best players in the competition.

"We've got the faith, and the players have enormous faith in his ability, to be able to carry out his role every week.

"He's a superb athlete, so disciplined, and he gives us enormous flexibility."
