The article does say "Allies squad" but it is actually referring an Allies Talent Academy, which is having a training camp right now. I think the asterisks are questionable because this article says Malcolm Rosas Jnr is one of 3 players picked. Hewago Paul Oea and Connor Budarick are our best Academy prospects and among the first picked, however, this is a new Allies concept aimed at unearthing new talent with the squads of 30 (Vic Metro, Vic Country, SA and WA have squads too) must have 10 underagers.
I am more interested in why those 3 NT boys are training with the Sun because we used to have NT in our zone before the AFL gave it to GWS - remember Steven May? Malcolm Rosas Jnr is a little 175cm livewire, while Ben Jungfer is a 185cm inside mid and Joel Jeffrey is an under age marking forward. I don't know if the Suns or Lions (the trio are also training with Brisbane) will have first access to them in the Draft.
