There is a certain cross over of players that suit both games( AF, RL) but in general players such as Hipwood, Andrews were never going to be RL players, more likely to be Volleyball players or basketball or if put on stacks of weight a tall line out RU player.Nah
It shows that the AFL went very close to getting two of the best handful of under 23 players in the NRL while still getting the likes of Heeney, Mills, Harris Andrews, Eric Hipwood in the same period
Heeney and the big type of midfielders may suit both games, possibly as a center, winger or 5/8 etc in the rugby codes.
I really think the codes have a bit in common but not a great deal when looking for players.
