As he prepares for his 250th AFL game on Friday night when the Swans meet Collingwood at the MCG, Buddy Franklin says he’s keener than ever to play in another Grand Final.

The Nyoongar forward has played in two losing Grand Final sides since crossing to the Swans for the 2014 season.

With two losses in the first two rounds of the  season, 30 year old Franklin (pictured) says he and his teammates are training harder than ever to give themselves the best chance of playing in the 2017 decider.
