Jude played 325 games for the Sydney Swans, during which he held the record for most tackles in a career and still holds the record for most tackles in a game. He played a critical role in two of the Swans’ AFL premiership winning teams.
Jude had a keen focus as a senior player to teach the younger players a commitment to developing the whole man, and a maniacal focus on high performance culture. He will bring a wealth of experience in these areas to the Club, will provide a different perspective on performance and learnings from a fast growing code and will be a great mentor to SUFC’s coaches and players.
He is a University of Sydney alumnus (Post-graduate Commerce), a loyal supporter of Sydney University Sport and attendee at many Blue and Gold functions over the years.
