Sam Reid warmly welcomes new recruit Tippett to Swans side

SYDNEY Swans premiership forward Sam Reid hopes to strike up a winning partnership with controversial recruit Kurt Tippett on the field.

And to get to know the former Adelaide Crows star better, Reid has offered Tippett a spare room in his house until he sorts out his own living arrangements.

"Just at the moment until he finds a place to either rent or buy," Reid said.

"I had a spare room and thought I'll probably be playing alongside him, so I may as well get to know him and build a bit of a relationship.

"He seems like a good guy and it's good to have him here."

Reid, who turns 21 next week, may already have a premiership ring, but he said he was a long way from joining the competition's elite forwards.

"Obviously I'd like to get stronger and that will be a goal for the next few years, to add a bit of size and strength," he said.

"Plus the endurance side, just seeing guys like Buddy Franklin and Nick Riewoldt, who can run around all day.

"They've got a perfect mix of strength and power as well as endurance. That's something I want to work towards."
