There's no official award for the player that lays the most tackles, but that hasn't stopped Ben McGlynn and Luke Parker from going head-to-head.

The Swans midfielders, who were both in impressive form against West Coast last weekend in Perth, have set a challenge to find out who can lay the most tackles this season with Parker (88 tackles) holding a narrow two-tackle lead over McGlynn (86) after 15 matches.

While the pair still has a little way to go before they catch fellow midfielder Josh Kennedy, who leads the club with 101 tackles for the season, McGlynn said he has his sights set on closing the gap on Parker this weekend when the Swans host Carlton at the SCG.

"Tackling is obviously something that I've always enjoyed doing," McGlynn told reporters on Thursday.

"Early in my career I was getting stepped (around) a lot, so I had to learn a lot and practice a lot of tackles.

"So me and Lukey Parker have got a bit of a challenge going at the moment.

"He's in front of me on the tackle count, so I want to catch him after the weekend."

Its a shame the All Australian comittee don't bother looking at pressure and tackles for small forwards because Benny McGlynn would be in every day of the week this year

Surely that is what the trophy is called. No way anyone would have caught either of those guys
