Playing alongside his younger brother Brandon has helped breathe life into the WAFL career of experienced Swan Districts defender Graham Jetta.

Brandon Jetta, 20, showed promise in Swans' first two games of the season against East Perth and Peel, while two-times State player Graham, 27, was one of the best in their stirring 35-point win against the Thunder at Steel Blue Oval last Saturday.

Another brother, Aaron, 23, and cousin Rodney, 21, kicked three goals each for the black and whites in the reserves.

Rodney's brother Neville Jetta has played 41 games in five seasons with Melbourne.

A member of WA teams against Queensland in 2011 and South Australia in 2012, Graham Jetta has forged a reputation as one of the better back men in the league since making his WAFL debut in 2009.

Swans coach Greg Harding said all four Jettas, who hailed from Bunbury club Carey Park, could line up in the same league team.

"There's absolutely a chance that all four could play in the same side, three brothers and a cousin, which would be really exciting," Harding said.

"We think they are all in really good form at the moment."

Harding compared Aaron to a fourth Jetta brother, Lewis, who has played 81 games with Sydney since being drafted from Swan Districts in 2009.

"Aaron is very much in the mould of Lewis Jetta with really high-end speed," he said.

Harding described the exciting play of the Jettas as something of a microcosm for Swan Districts who have shown encouraging signs at the start of the season after losing several players.
