2 years of little footy for the vic metro kids is really going to take its toll at this age group, there is no hiding the lack of crucial development is going to be an issue for these kids. I am not sure there is an easy answer, perhaps the best would be to lift the draft age to allow the vic kids an extra year to catch up.
The best "catch up" is getting into the AFL system where you have full-time development and at least some protection from COVID shutdowns.

One to watch this week end. Kane McAuliffe. Stunning season for North Adelaide in SANFL U16 season. In 8 games he went over 30, 5 times. Highlighted with a 43 game. Since completion of the SANFL U16 season Kane, as a year 10, has moved seamlessly into 1st 18 footy for PAC, regularly making the best players.

This week end Intercol is being live streamed - PAC v St Peter’s. Kane will certainly be one to watch together with the likes of Matty Roberts and Morgan Ferres.

Ned Hawkins tied to Sydney's Academy may be one to look out for, good pace and leading patterns as a medium forward with a good kick

I couldn't get into today's game (no commentary and constantly referring back to numbers) but I saw a nice goal from a set shot kicked by Patrick Weckert.

I'd assume Delean did what Delean does best.

Delean was one of the best on, super aggressive and made the most of his chances. McCabe, Weckert, Moir and Francis the others that were good.

Here's another little thing about McAuliffe here Mutineer.

These screenshots of mine were taken in 2018 from an episode of TAC Cup Future stars that aired in 2017.

Some familiar names here.

These are only a guide but no doubt more learned folk have seen more than just Stevens, Watson, Walter, Caddy and Duursma.
