The player who has shown the most AFL traits in my opinion is Emmanuel Ajang, another Werribee VFL player. He is freakish athletically and kicked a couple goals.

Emmanuel has played all his footy in the GFL this season at Geelong West Giants.

Cox reportedly out for the year for Essendon by Tom Browne (I know, but he's pretty good with his Essendon mail). I assume North and WC have spots open at this point?

Loads of talent now. This is exciting. Not too fussed with the hawks recent losses

We missed out on Logan MacDonald because we beat GC in round 18 and Sydney cleverly decided to mess up multiple chances against the Cats.

This time we play GC on the eve on the draft again..

We will have at least 1 with Bergman ruled out for the season. We have to be looking at a defender.

Wow...there is such as a thing as balance. A lot of these draft picks are produced by these clubs, who produce talent and try and win premierships and while they are successful they can continue to produce draft picks.

If clubs did their research then the young players would be picked in the draft or pre-season.

If they really have injury issues they should use a player from their state league host/partnership club. No need to disrupt the premiership plans of other clubs.

How many drafts do you want for clubs to dot the i's and cross the t's

As much as I like the big league, it's not all about the big league.
What % of these players are playing at the club that developed them?

Anyone have the link for the WAFL vs SANFL replay. I couldn’t find any link on the AFL website where it’s supposed to be. As an eagles supporter there’s not much to look forward to besides the draft and mid season draft this year 😅

In the SANFL/WAFL?

Well, all!

That's how the development system works in those states.

In the WAFL, a player will start off with 14's development squad, 15's development squad, 16's futures and then colts. From there the WA State academy picks those that they rate the most and with zoning a player is bound by their residence.

It's the WAFL clubs in conjunction with junior/country clubs that get these guys up and about.

Or did you mean something else because now that I've read your post again, I'm unsure

Big fan of Bauer right now. Very talented in the air, reads the flight very early, protects the drop zone and has great hands.

I also love his combination of pace on the lead with his ability to easily kick over 50 m.

Looks like a great medium forward prospect.
Rowey reckons Adelaide have shown interest in big bodied Glenelg midfielder Brett Turner. He did have an outstanding game against the Crows SANFL team a couple of weeks ago.
