Some WA kids I liked at colts level this year:

Matthew Johnson (Subiaco/North Beach JFC) - 187cm midfielder/forward
Classy tall midfielder who looked very impressive in his 6 colts games this year as a double underager. Averaged 15 disposals and kicked 5.4. Strong in the contest for his lighter frame, played as a wingman or a deep forward.

Antonio Dadaliaris (Swan Districts/Bassendean JFC) - 183cm intercepting defender
Silky medium defender who reads the play well. Makes everything look very easy.

Judd McVee (East Fremantle/Geraldton Rovers) - 178cm midfielder
2019 U16 All Australian who made his senior GNFL debut in July. Notorious standout in many WA state schoolboys teams. Natural footballer with decent goal sense.

Others to keep an eye on: Max Chipper (SD), Kade Dittmar (EP), Jacob van Rooyen (C), Richard Bartlett (EF), Luke Polson (PT), Jesse Motlop (SF), Rhett Bazzo (SD)

Sam Banks is listed in our NGA Academy listings, fairly certain he's tied to us.

I was at my grandsons year 6 graduation disco last night and was reliably informed that this will be a super draft.

2021 Pool
Josh Rachele (Murr) med forw - 180cm, 4 games 8 goals, averaged 17.8 disposals 50% cont poss as a 16 year old and looks like a star on the field
Tom Brown (Murr) med forw - 184cm, 2 games 0 goals, averaged 9.5 disposals, played as a high hff in 2 losses pre-finals, potential
Sam Banks (Tas) mid - 184cm, 8 games 1 goal, averaged 11.6 disposals, smooth outside/inside mid with good disposal, won Tas MVP in the u16
Alex Lukic (Oak) KPF - 194cm, 2 games 3 goals, averaged 5.5 disposals, tall skinny forw who looks a likely type, kicked a bag in the u16 i believe
Tyler Sonsie (East) mid - 181cm, 6 games 3 goals, averaged 11 disposals, played as a hff who had some time in the mid, had some moments of quality
Ben Hobbs (GWV) sml forw/mid - 181cm, 5 games 2 goals, averaged 12 disposals, clever mid, looks like a good young prospect
Josh Rentsch (GWV) KPF - 196cm, 5 games 3 goals, averaged 8.2 disposals, tall forw who has had his moments, but very raw at this stage
Charlie Molan (GWV) med defender 187cm, 2 games, averaged 12.5 disposal, intercept defender, in 1 of his 2 games he had a very good game

as you can see Josh Rachele was the most effective player and there were games he dominated as a 16 year old not even in his underage year, looking forward to what he can produce for the next 2 years.

Vic Metro won 3-0, Vic Country 2nd 1-2, SA 3rd 1-2, WA Last 1-2

2nd-4th based on percentage, VC and SA close but WA had a bad percentage being beaten by big scores and winning 1 game by 2 points over VC
WA were very average but could of been really competitive some of the selections left people scratching the heads. Some really talented kids missed out.

Callum Twomey has had a chubby for Nick Daicos for the last 12 months already. Also we have Dib as an academy player who was the u16 AA wingman this year iirc.

Daicos again will be hidden in school football for another year, I’m hoping to get to more school games next year and should be able to see what all the hype is about ;)
