I'm not sure but I doubt it. But he stands out for his skills. Caught my eye instantly. Not sure how his first name would be pronounced. He's exciting.
Sorry, I just realised PT stood for Peel Thunder. Not Perth.

Yeah lol...and he's looking like a ruck prospect. Must be around 200cm already. But early days...the entire top 40 will look a lot different this time next year.
Like this. Will be interesting to see how they go in 16’s carnival. Was surprised with some of the inclusions and exclusions in the 16’s squad. Agree this list will look very different in 12 months. Watched round 1 of futures game Claremont v East Freo. Off that game very surprised Bailey Morgan didn’t make state 16’s from EF and Hamish Davis from Claremont. Both dominated and looked like the real deal. Morgan kicked 6 from memory and apparently was Davis’s first game in 2 years off the back of a long term back injury. You couldn’t tell. Super athletic, good size, reads the ball well.

Yeah cheers mate. A few people have mentioned that they think there were some unlucky players to miss out on the state squad.

I'll add Davis to the list and if you have any other names let us know.

I've noticed a number of non-state 2006 players have been added to the WAFL clubs colts lists so maybe we'll see a few come through shortly like Kihusa.

Just watched the Vic Metro v Vic Country 16's game.

I had to double check that it wasn't an 18's game.

I think they are physically stronger and probably more talented across the ground but WA does have some x-factor type players that the Vics didn't seem to have.

I hope WA select those mercurial players in the championships. That's the strength of WA football. Indigenous fellas, x-factor players, points of difference.

One way or another it's going to be tough for WA I feel.

Hopefully we do OK and are competitive enough. What are your thoughts on how WA selectors seem to miss a lot of potentially great players for 16’s selection v who ends up getting drafted in their 18’s year? Is it purely a lack of being able to watch these players enough at a younger age and do they pick players who they think will be “competitive” at a 16’s carnival versus players who potentially could go on to get drafted? The futures carnival is very short with many boys unable to play every game due to summer sport or psa commitments. With the squad being picked primarily from this carnival it seems they just don’t get to see enough of them play.

I'm not sure mate but three people have said to me that this squad is missing some good players. I must say when I went through the futures best player lists for all the games a lot of the names that featured regularly aren't part of this squad.

But it will evolve over the next two and a half years. So plenty of time for every player to get noticed.

I really liked the state 17's exhibition game this year. It featured 54 players and felt really comprehensive as in every serious contender was involved barring maybe a few who had other sporting commitments or injury or were not on the radar at that time.

My fears for this WA squad have been realised.

Could imagine that only 10 or 12 of these guys will be in the mix for 18's selection by the time other 2006's are introduced into the colts system over the next two and a half years.

South Australia are very slick....great skills.
