OR it's a good indication that the academies are run professionally and are doing their jobs well.... giving talented Northern kids a pathway they would never have taken without them.
Eddie... that's the entire point!
I hope Ellem can kick a few as the Allies look a little short on firepower with Tozer and Dakin injured. Delahunty and Gore are the only proven goal kickers and they have probably never played in Tassie (1st match) before. Ryan or Conroy May have to play forward or they could choose that underage kid from Tassie

Probably push Green forward too.
Good kick, and tall.

Been playing a lot of school football this year but Louis Butler is right up there for Sandringham next year, another to add to the list
The 2013 Victorian U12 team.




Anderson, Carafa, Maginness, Mahony, McAsey, Rowell, Serong, Smith, Stephens and Williams are still thereabouts 5 years later.

Some of the GWS and Gold Coast kids are well built and have been playing against men in the NEAFL for a year. The Swans and Lions kids haven’t had the same opportunity as they have had most of their AFL players available each week
Several of the Swans players have had a couple of runs in the NEAFL this year.
All would have played a few in 2018.
A couple played in the elimination final against Canberra, and 3 in the GF!

Lions AFL have no real injury count so Academy boys not getting the same opportunity in the NEAFL as the Suns Academy players by the sounds.

Yeah someone like Martyn would have only played one or two neafl where Budarick , Gore and Oea would have played about 7. Whether that means they are more developed footballers than those not playing neafl who knows

I think Martin played a practice match for the Lions early in the year but nothing since. Pretty sure a few train with Aspley NEAFL but need a consistent run at training to be be considered for selection. It’s a shame some NEAFL / QAFL Clubs don’t seem to share the love for the Academy players when they are available.

There are some very light kids in Allies.
How do they cope vs SA or WA?
My question actually wonders if the Allies would be wise getting big bodies, or it doesn't really matter.
I have no idea what WA is built like, but have heard that SA is a bigger team.
The point of the Allies is to play the kids the recruiters and clubs want to see, who they believe are potential draft prospects. It's not actually to win the Championships.

If the kids are light bodied, that's on their academy for not having the kids doing the appropriate weight program.

I agree with you 100%
The reason i ask is because there are some very light kids that are the so called "bees knees"..
But without balance across the park, they will get eaten.
That's intetesting. I didn't realise that it was simply a job interview.
So does that mean that the 50 players in the squad that get broken down to a playing group actually have Power and Sheehan and co. decide for the recruiters?

Who would be the top 10 draft prospect from Qld and NSW this year
