This draft keeps finding new ways to kick clubs who aren’t tied to NGA kids in the nuts. Just hoping Tanner Bruhn and Kaine Baldwin can return from injury this year and play a big role.

Baldwin is one of the best junior forwards I have ever watched live.

Shattered for the young fella, I watched him at the futures game last year he was brilliant. Still easily top 3 imo

Shattering news, but we've seen plenty of top talent still get drafted after a year off (Cooper Stephens, Mitch Georgiades and Flynn Perez come to mind immediately)

Will be great too see if he drops off of everyone's rankings now

Massive shame for Hollands. Watched his champs and the futures game last year and he's supremely talented. Reminded me of a bigger bodied Chad Wingard. I reckon he still goes top 10 in the draft, maybe even top 5, but I'm certainly no expert on the draft crop.

Would have been thrown into the middle at times as most 16s do in those champs.
Hey eDPS do you have a loose player comparison for Holland’s to a current player?

Lions might have one (Ports first rounder if they bomb) or two (our own if we bomb the season) picks in the 5 to 10 range.

Played predominantly half/ forward for Vic country last year but would’ve moved onball this year for murray/ country.

He could help the forwards with their games.

Also, can sit with coaches who can show him how to analyse each game so that he can pass said info to his teammates.

Posted by Oakleigh Roo on Pies Board about Reef McGinnis:

On Sunday night Oakleigh and Tassy played a practice match in a closed session at Oakleigh with some scouts in attendance. And the scout who I get information from was left gobsmacked from Reef McInnes’ performance. He had 27 and kicked 4 goals from the midfield and CHF. He thinks he’s a better prospect than Will Phillips and Macrae. And better than Noah Anderson last year. Thinks he’s a certainty to have a top 5 bid on him. He has also apparently grown to 193cms now in that Bont/Cripps mould. He said he was taking some big grabs
Sounds very Promising Start of the Year for Reef

Are we going to see many U17’s in the Vic teams this year?

From all reports, last years U16’s we’re pretty good, while this years draft crop was talked down a bit last year.

i would guess Rachelle (Vic C), Sonsie and Sinn (Vic M)will likely play with a bunch of others in contention, so yes, i think some underagers will get a couple more spots this year than usual imo, but like always the vast majority will be in their draft year as clubs want to see talent for this draft and whether they can handle the pressure of higher level footy/AFL scouts/media/being showcased on Foxtel/ect that comes with the champs games.

Yep Alex lukic is another one, though they usually don’t get played in their preferred positions. Usually fitted in on forward or back flanks. That worked against will Phillips last year who is a pure mid and can’t really anywhere else, due to the metro midfield being stacked he didn’t get a chance until the last game.
