The Sydney Swans have delisted Xavier Richards, Jack Hiscox and Abaina Davis. 

Richards had previously rejected a two-year contract with the Swans, because he was finding it too expensive to live in Sydney.

The 23-year-old received limited interest from Victorian clubs during trade period.


The Sydney Swans have made three changes to its playing list for the 2017 season.

Xavier Richards, Jack Hiscox and Abaina Davis have been informed they will be delisted.

In his fourth year with the Swans, Richards played 10 games this season for a career tally of 12 matches. 

Davis and Hiscox both joined the Swans from the QBE Sydney Swans Academy in the 2014 draft. Hiscox made his AFL debut this year against Richmond in Round 8, while Davis didn’t appear at senior level.

Swans Head of Football Tom Harley thanked the trio for their efforts while at the Swans.

“We would like to thank Xavier, Jack and Abaina for the contribution they made to the Club,” Harley said.

“All three players worked tirelessly while at the Swans and should be proud of their efforts.  

“We wish Xavier, Jack and Abaina all the best for the future.”
