Playing career[edit]

2010-12: Career with Sydney[edit]

Dennis-Lane was drafted to Sydney with the 55th selection in the 2009 AFL Draft.[3] He had previously been playing with Subiaco Football Club in the West Australian Football League and trained with Fremantle in the leadup to the draft.[4]

Dennis-Lane is a quality medium forward who can play as both a crumbing small forward and in a lead-up role. Quick and evasive with great goal sense. In 2009, he kicked 66 goals in WAFL[3] including four in the grand final.[5]

Dennis-Lane, often referred to as TDL by Swans' fans, made his debut against Richmond at the MCG, kicking one goal. Having returned to the side after being dropped, Dennis-Lane showed some very impressive form towards the end of the year. He kicked 4 goals against the Western Bulldogs at the SCG and then another 4 goals against Carlton in the Elimination Final at ANZ Stadium. His chase and tackle on Dennis Armfield in the final quarter in the lead up to his 4th goal was one of the highlights of the year and sealed victory for the Swans.

2013-present: Career with St Kilda[edit]

On 26 October 2012, Dennis-Lane was traded to St Kilda. Now plays for the Sandringham Zebras and is sponsored by Two Locals in Black Rock.

Personal life[edit]

Dennis-Lane is of Burmese descent, with his father moving to Australia at age 13. [3]
