Thought I’d do a small amount of pre-planning for my rankings and ended up spending the whole time just updating heights and weights in my excel and identifying vic players who will play school football aswell

Already have 85 players on the Excel sheet for next year so before I knew it the day is almost over with just getting all that sorted, had another watch of the all stars game again aswell with only a few other things catching my eye which was hardly worth the 2 hours haha
That game was so boring to watch. Ugle-Hagan playing half back was funny to see. The rotations to try and get everyone involved reminded me of an nba all star game

He reminds me of Jack Darling, already a good size and just a natural strong marking and hard leading forward.
Do you think he is a better prospect than ugle-hagan? Also the key forward for Tassy. Is he a chance for
A first round selection?

Ugle-Hagan has him covered for speed and athleticism which is why he will be rated higher but I have him ahead of Callow and he could be a first round prospect but it will depend on how he has recovered and will hopefully be able to start the year strong.

Doesn't have the leap of Ugle Hagan but is strong. Is number 1 KPF IMO. McDonald 2 and Ugle Hagan 3rd.

Everyone in the media ripping next years draft when there will be way better quality talls available. Can’t wait for nationals next year and the fwd line battles, the champs lacked a big fwd leading his team to the title this year. Ugle-hagan for country, Thilthorpe + Baldwin for SA, McDonald for WA and Callow for the Allies. Metro the only team without an out and out KPF star

I wonder if the Allies will play more of their bottom age kids at the Nationals. I would love to see Noah McFadyen get a run against the top age kids.

Alright genuine take, is Blake Coleman better than his brother?

Nikolas Cox, Liam McMahon and Ollie Lord are the metro guys that are a chance to push into that grouping, although Cox will likely Ruck in the champs.

I don’t think Cox will ruck most likely plays on the wing at the champs next year. Sam Tucker and McMahon could play forward/defence depending on the mix they want. Josh Eyre will be another key forward that will play champs and Cody Brand down back.

Plenty of tall options for Metro just not of the high quality as other states going of this year.

Cody brand will have his hands full at the champs next year

How are you rating Eyre at the moment?

Came from the clouds a bit but has shown some great talent as a potential contested marking forward, massive upside aswell. Another taller player I didn’t mention from Calder is Campbell Edwards who I don’t rate as highly as other talls but he has his fans and can also play as a tall wingman or key forward

Yep, seen a bit of him as well he does lack consistency imo. His good is easily good enough though.

I was going to list Edwardes but think he's the type that's best suited to a wing rather than a KPP role

Harry Sharp if he goes all in with footy this season, looked pretty good a in a couple of games last year, plays a bit outside but an elite runner and skills pretty decent? Your opinion?

Sharp hasn’t been on my radar so i don’t know too much about him yet, will certainly go back through his highlights at some point and give you my thoughts

Have you seen any of the Suns academy forward prospects?
Mcfadyen seems the standout from the u16 titles but Lockett and Bella also rated a mention on some of the write-ups.
