Lewis Jetta, previously associated with both the West Coast Eagles and the Sydney Swans, has made a comeback to the Swans amidst a challenging period for his family’s health.

Lewis Jetta, who previously played for both the West Coast Eagles and the Sydney Swans, has rejoined the Swans at a time when his family is facing a health challenge, with his 10-year-old daughter Daisy undergoing a marathon surgery.

Pictures surfaced this week showing Jetta and his family alongside some Swans stars at the Sydney Cricket Ground and the club’s new headquarters. Among those they spent time with were Isaac Heeney, Luke Parker, Dane Rampe, Sam Reid, and Jetta’s former coach John Longmire.

According to the club, Daisy is recuperating well following a 16-hour surgery for pancreatitis, an inflammatory condition of the pancreas.

The Swans expressed their support for Jetta and his family via a social media post, with the Eagles responding with three blue love hearts.

Jetta was part of the Swans’ premiership-winning team in 2012 before returning to Western Australia to play for the West Coast Eagles, where he also won a premiership in 2018.

Now 34 years old, Jetta, along with several family members, has been given clearance to play football for Donnybrook in the South West Football League this season. Although they may not participate in every game, this move sets the stage for another football reunion, following last year’s collaboration of seven Jettas playing for the High Wycombe club in the Perth Football League.
