Callum Sinclair Biography

Monday, 1 July 2019
Callum Sinclair's hopes of playing again this season will be determined by how his injured shoulder responds to rehabilitation over the next month.

Sinclair dislocated his right shoulder twice in the opening term of the Swans' 42-point win over Gold Coast at the SCG on Saturday and played no further part in the match after quarter-time.

"It's one of those grey areas because it's not (damaged) bad enough to absolutely do it (surgery) just yet, so we'll give him the time to let it settle," Sydney coach John Longmire said.

"His season hasn't been written off just yet and we'll see how he goes over the next three weeks."

Saturday, 29 June 2019
Callum Sinclair will be sidelined for a period of time after dislocating his right shoulder in the opening minute of the Swans' win against Gold Coast.

Sinclair bravely attempted to play on after getting the injury strapped, but he was helped from the field again on the quarter-time siren in agony after it popped out again.

Tuesday, 26 March 2019
Callum Sinclair signs a two-year contract extension with Sydney to remain at the club until the end of 2021.

"Ever since coming to the Swans, Callum has been an outstanding clubman and an incredibly popular teammate," Swans football manager Charlie Gardiner said.

"His football has been at a really high standard for a while now, particularly in the past 12 months when he shouldered the primary ruck role for the whole season."

Friday, 1 June 2018
Sydney coach John Longmire believes Callum Sinclair has thrived with the heavy responsibility of carrying the side's ruck load in 2018.

"He's a pretty fit bloke and he gets around the ground pretty well, and he's been competing well," Longmire said.

"I think he's just growing in confidence knowing that he's got a pretty important role in the team and he's fulfilling that most weeks."

Wednesday, 27 July 2016
Callum Sinclair could be out for a month after undergoing knee surgery.

Sinclair hurt his right knee against Carlton in the Swans' six-point win last Saturday, and although he played out the match at the SCG, subsequent scans revealed enough damage to require an operation.

“Callum suffered a little discomfort during and after the game,” Swans football manager Tom Harley said.

“The scan revealed some cartilage had broken off in his right knee, so he underwent arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday morning to remove some of that floating cartilage.

“We won’t know the full prognosis until he recovers from the surgery, but we are hopeful he will be able to return within a month.”

Tuesday, 3 May 2016
Sydney Swans coach John Longmire says he wasn't offended by comments from Brisbane Lions counterpart Justin Leppitsch questioning the Swans’ use of the stretcher in their three-point win at the Gabba.

The controversy occurred when Swans forward Callum Sinclair went down clutching his knee close to his own goalsquare in the dying minutes of the match.

The Swans called for a stretcher with the ball in play inside the home side's forward 50, which is when the emergency umpire blew the whistle to halt play, an action since deemed to be a mistake by the AFL.

Leppitsch was fuming post-match and hinted that the Swans had deliberately called for the stretcher as a tactic to stop play, but Longmire said that his club was fine with the comments made and happy to move on from the incident.

"It's really difficult (for an opposition coach) after a game to know exactly what happened," Longmire said.

"It's pretty clear, Callum (Sinclair) went over and hyper-extended his knee and we thought he'd done a pretty serious knee injury.

"The stretcher was called and the umpire blew the whistle.

"Callum had a scan yesterday, but you don't know that at the time.

"It's very difficult to get everything right immediately after the game so we move on from that pretty quickly."

Thursday, 24 December 2015
Swans recruit Callum Sinclair is eyeing off the No.1 ruck role at his new club, but he understands there will be no shortage of suitors looking to fill the void left by the retired Mike Pyke.

"That would be ideal if I could come in and play that (No.1) role but there are no guarantees," Sinclair said.

"You need to be playing consistent footy to be given the opportunity and privilege to put on a red and white jumper.

"Hopefully it falls that way… I haven't put too many expectations on myself for 2016. I've just been trying to focus on the pre-season and trying to get the best out of myself and the rest of the group."

Wednesday, 14 October 2015
West Coast trades ruckman Callum Sinclair for Sydney Swans speedster Lewis Jetta in a straight swap.

West Coast’s general manager of football Craig Vozzo said the club was thrilled at its midfield additions.

"Lewis offers us some attributes which few players possess, particularly his line-breaking pace and elite kick," Vozzo said.

"We had two key targets going into the trade period and it’s great to now have Lewis and Jack (Redden) on board."

Sinclair had been a required player at the Eagles after playing 20 games this year, including all three finals, as back-up to Nic Naitanui.

Sinclair, who was contracted for next season, was understood to be keen to stay at West Coast until the Swans showed 'significant interest' in him.

Eagles football manager Craig Vozzo told NAB AFL Trade Radio on Monday the club was initially keen to hang on to Sinclair and not include him in a deal for Jetta.

But following the decision to trade their first-round pick (No.17) for Brisbane Lions midfielder Jack Redden, and the AFL's decision to give an end-of-second round compensation pick (currently No.37) for losing restricted free agent Scott Selwood to Geelong, the Eagles were left with limited options.

Sunday, 7 June 2015
Callum Sinclair has credited Eagles' ruck coach Dean Cox with helping him fast-track his development.

"It's been a big emphasis on body-work, body technique, things like that," Sinclair said.

"When you're coming up against guys who are 110kg every week, it's not the easiest job.

"But with (Cox's) level of experience he knows the game inside-out, particularly as a ruckman, so I just try and draw as much knowledge as I can from him."

Monday, 1 June 2015
Nic naitanui has promised teammate Callum Sinclair the prize for mark of the year if he wins for his spectacular grab during West Coast's victory over Geelong on Sunday afternoon.

The Eagles star launched himself onto the shoulders of his 200cm ruck partner to take a mark of the year contender in the last quarter.

Naitanui slotted the set shot from a tough angle to push to margin to a comfortable 32 points after his teammates had kicked poorly for goal all afternoon.

Sinclair told AFL.com.au that Naitanui promised him a reward for the ride.

"He's promised me the (prize) if he wins it this year," Sinclair said.

"I was actually pretty dirty. I thought he was going to hold out and let me have a crack one-on-one but I soon found out that that wasn't the case.

"Hopefully he wins it this year. That'll help me out.

"I thought he dropped it actually, on the way down. I'm happy for him."

Monday, 2 March 2015
Callum Sinclair is set to miss at least a month of football after fracturing his thumb during the Eagles' 31-point win over Carlton in their NAB Challenge clash in Mandurah.
Monday, 19 January 2015
Callum Sinclair and Elliot Yeo made successful returns to training on Monday following significant hand injuries.

Both players participated fully in the lengthy match simulation session at Patersons Stadium.

Wednesday, 10 December 2014
Callum Sinclair will have surgery on his finger after suffering a compound fracture at training.
Thursday, 24 July 2014
Callum Sinclair and Brad Sheppard commit to two year extensions which will keep them at the Eagles until the end of 2016.

"We have great faith in both Cal and Brad and what they offer our list," Eagles football manager Craig Vozzo said.

"Apart from what everyone sees in their on-field performances, they are also quality young men and are an important part of our plans.

"Both have already shown in the games they have played that they have the attributes we need to push up the ladder and we look forward to them playing their roles within the team."

Monday, 31 March 2014
Dean Cox will break an AFL record against St Kilda on Saturday by going past Stephen Milne for the most games played by a rookie-listed player, with 276.

Eagles teammate Callum Sinclair labels Cox a 'freak'.

"I'm in shock sometimes," Sinclair said.

"He's one of those guys who's good at everything. He's very professional around the club and takes his footy very seriously. He takes pride in his body.

"He's a freak. I think we're going to have to cart him out of the joint. I don't think he'll be going any time soon. He's playing terrific footy."
