“Peter is a player who has shown great versatility to play ruck and up forward. He is 202cm but very mobile and I know Dean Cox is really forward to working with him,”
“He is only 23 years of age and we see him as long term ruckman for the Club, complementing Tom Hickey who we brought to the Club during last year’s trade period.” Sydney EGM of Football Charlie Gardiner via Swans Media.
Ladhams averaged 13.6 Disposals, 3.4 Marks, 13.5 Hit Outs & 2.4 Tackles from 17 games in 2021 for the Power.

Ladhams is likely a pass in season long fantasy at Round 1, he’s a depth consideration only at this stage in draft leagues unless a clear path to the No.1 ruck position is available.
“Complimentary role with Tom Hickey in the short to medium term”
“Longer down the track he probably slots into that No.1 ruck role, but it’s a couple of years away” Swans CEO Tom Harley via SEN (October 14).
“We don’t see Peter (Ladhams) as a long term back-up solution.”
“What Peter brings is someone who can also compliment our forward line, but compliment Tom (Hickey) as a ruck combination.” Swans CEO Tom Harley via 5AA (October 14).
