This is why I don't watch the draft or the brownlow anymore. Insane how much they drag this sh*t out.

Congratulations to whoever our first round draftee is!

I am sure he will be a future premiership captain and rack up over 200 games in the red and blue. He was an absolute steal, I can't believe that that all of the other clubs passed on him! What nuffies!

Nice article, only has nice things to say about the club.

It is a shame that Gil cucked the NGA rules right before it paid off for us, but at least Mac Andrew seems to appreciate the opportunity the club gave him to fast track his development

LOL

You guys need to get a life! The kid hasn't played a game and you're already concocting scenarios on how we will recruit him.

Chill!

Oooh that one hurt.

Dees were very keen on Wilmot. Might even have rang and asked Brisbane for a swap...

Jacob Van Rooyen


Claremont, WAFL
State: Western Australia
Height: 193cm
Weight: 91kg
Date of Birth: 16/04/03


Tall defender or forward who showed his real talent in an outstanding game across half-back for Western Australia in the NAB AFL Challenge match against South Australia. Rooyen took eight marks and had 12 disposals in an eye-catching performance, then swung forward in final moments of the Toyota AFL Grand Final curtain-raiser to kick the winning goal for his state. His versatility and aerial craft have drawn comparisons to West Coast emerging star Oscar Allen. Van Rooyen kicked 34 goals in nine matches at under-18s WAFL level to prove his swingman ability, along with playing mainly forward in five senior matches with Claremont this year. He is also another player to benefit from representing Australia at under-18s level against Geelong's VFL team in April this year. His 3.06 seconds for 20 metres at the NAB AFL Draft Combine was a sound indication of his acceleration for a player of his size.

Van Rooyen:think:
Personally I'm stoked to get him.

Always hard judging with the lack of footy over here compared to wa/Sa.

But watched a couple of games of his mid year and thought he would go top 10. Tough and courageous in the air, second efforts for a big are great too. Kicks nice.

Hopefully we don't need him to play next year at all and he can just bide his time at Casey, but I really like the look of him.

Someone who could potentially be a KPF is definitely a need, thats all you can really say at this stage.

Love the pick, haven't been across this draft but he was one player in our range that I had my eyes on. Fits perfectly for when guys like May and McDonald get into their 30s, or if Weideman just doesn't develop any further.

I can't believe this sh*t is dragged out over 2 days! WTF?? I tuned in and heard the clown Brad Johnson tell the viewers that the North Melbourne Football Club were absolutely flying, then I turned it off. Didn't they come last? They are a rabble..

Looks like a decent selection for us. Exactly what we needed tbh. TMac and Brown getting on. Weid unsure. Our midfield looks set for a number of years so looking for talls is a no brainer. Go hard for Mac Andrew in a few years too I reckon. GC are a mess. Hopefully grab Taj tomorrow night and another JT special!
