JFC it might have been shorter to list the players NOT in West Coast's NGA.
The thing is that a club can't take all their NGA players, so the time and money WCE invests in all those in their NGA will at some point benefit a club at some level whether it be at AFL, WAFL or some lower level. It should also be said that WCE is, outside of the WAFC the major financial contributor to football in WA and they get back very little for that investment with most of the WAFL players ending up at clubs other than WCE.
BTW, heard that the Eagles missed a trick with Erasmus. Being of South African heritage he could have been listed as NGA... don't know if it is true or not!

Erasmus’ parents didn’t respond to an email. Source, Erasmus on Road to the Draft.

Otherwise he would have been in the NGA.

Because of the NGA new rules he wouldn’t have been able to be selected by the Eagles anyway.

I will own up to not knowing the NGA rules, why wouldn't they have been able to select him

Just read up on the rules. Think it will lead to less investment by the clubs on development programs for elite and up and coming young talent. At least the drafts will be less compromised although under the F/S rules we will still see some level of compromise. I find it somewhat annoying that a club like the Pies whose first pick is 33 can deliberately away its 1st round pick knowing full well that they can still get a top 1-3 pick under the existing F/S matching rules by using later picks. I think the rules need tweaking so that to match a bid you must have a pick in the round that that the bid comes in. That would mean that in the case of Daicos, Collingwood would either have had to hold on to this year's pick or trade back into the first round of the draft. Also, if you have a pick and don't take the F/S selection and another club selects them later in that round then the opportunity is gone. It would change the whole fabric of F/S selections because clubs would no longer be able to have their cake and eat it too!

Out of curiosity, was Neil Erasmus himself or either of his parents born in South Africa?

GUMBLETRON is right though. NGA bids can't be matched in the first round. Talk is that will be extended to the first 2 rounds next year.

I only said that to not look silly if that wasn't the case. Was 99% sure that was the case though.

Richard Farmer is shaping up as a very nice prospect

How the f$&k is the nephew of Jeff Farmer an NGA? Isn't the purpose of academies to uncover and nurture talent that wouldn't otherwise play AFL??
