Didn't we confirm earlier this year that Sam Banks wasn't NGA eligible despite being listed in the above underage list giantroo?
Yes, this is the response I got back from our NGA team:
"Here you go Sam, running waters is the most important job in the team".Yes, this is the response I got back from our NGA team:
Yes, this is the same Sam Banks. He will be eligible to be selected by any club when it’s his draft year. He can take part in some parts of our NGA program being from Tasmania but isn’t eligible for a Draft Concession.

Good to see Cam Joyce being as inspirational as ever...Joyce said the games were a great display of the strengths each individual all star brought to Tasmanian footy.
"Yes, they all have weaknesses, but the reason why they're at the level they are is because of their strengths and not their weaknesses," Joyce said.
Wow this nga stuff is pretty goodI've cross referenced the names from the U18 TAS All Stars game and our NGA listings. We had 17 players in this game.

I wonder if Sanders is actually eligible to us. He's name is listed on our NGA listing but the query will be whether he's actually eligible to be taken by us. If so, as long as no one bids, we can take him as a Cat B rookie.The usual suspects were ok in this game, Sanders for me was BOG, really like his effort around the ground. With the games I've watched this season, he's been solid, but not outstanding.... but I like him a lot, he'd be worth looking at.
