GRIFFITH champion Mick Duncan will enjoy what could be his final milestone for the club at Kindra Park on Saturday.
Duncan will run out for his 250th first grade game for the Swans when they take on Coolamon but the silky midfielder revealed this is likely to be his final season in the red and white.
“I think this will be it actually,” Duncan said.
“I’m pretty certain I’ll be moving to the Gold Coast at the end of the year, that’s the plan at the moment anyway.”
Duncan, 32, has achieved everything at Griffith.
He is a seven-time club best and fairest winner, premiership player, state representative, club all-time leading goalkicker and sits second to Swans great Sid Robins on Griffith’s all-time first grade games list.
Duncan was also named on a wing in the Swans’ Team of the Century.
Duncan said the 250 milestone is something special.
“It’s a good honour, considering only one other bloke has played that many for the club,” he said.
“It will mean a lot more down the track than it does at the present time.
“It’s caught up pretty quickly, it’s not something you play for. I would rather be playing finals and winning flags.”
With the Swans currently fifth on the Riverina League ladder, Duncan believes a farewell premiership is not out of the question.
“The comp is that even that anyone on any day could beat anybody,” he said.
“This week is a massive game, if we drop this one then we’re back competing with the other teams.
“If we win this one, then we have the bye, it gives us a really good chance for the run home.
“Like Narrandera did a few years ago, I think this year you can finish fifth and go on and win the comp.
“There is no team that you’re scared of, if you turn up and play footy on the day, you can beat anyone.”
Duncan rates Phil Rowston as the best player he has played with,, while Matt Hard and Drew Dunscombe are his toughest opponents.
He said the 2003 premiership, along with the mates he has made in football, were career highlights.
