Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT -

KURT Tip­pett will re­main with Syd­ney as a rookie in 2019 but has no plans to re­vive his ca­reer.

The ruck-for­ward re­tired in Jan­uary, cit­ing con­cerns over an an­kle in­jury, with three years to run on a lu­cra­tive con­tract. Given the tim­ing, the Swans had to carry Tip­pett on their main list for 2018, even though he had left the club.

Syd­ney of­fi­cially delisted him yes­ter­day to ease some of the salary cap bur­den, but he must re­main with the club as a rookie while he con­tin­ues to be paid.
