From Ugly Duckling To AFL Premiers: The Story Of The Sydney Swans

How did the AFL's ugly duckling turn into the most glamorous club in the competition – and the 2005 Premiership team? The Swans, as South Melbourne, were so inept – on and off the field – that, in 1982, they were exiled to Sydney to pioneer the national competition.

'Shake Down The Thunder' tells the remarkable story of the club's metamorphosis into a powerhouse – an instructive tale for any sporting team or organisation. The climb to premiership victory took almost a quarter of a century of heartache, trial and effort, including lean times when the club could not afford even tapes and bandages, through two unsuccessful periods of private ownership, and with a chorus of scornful disbelievers.

Sydney's story is seen through the eyes of dozens of individuals – players, coaches, trainers, directors, consultants – who relay on- and off-field fragments to form the rich tapestry of a club's surge to success.
