This bloke sounds like walk up shinboner material.

Kyron Hayden first rose to prominence in 2014 after stellar performances in the National U15s Schoolboys Carnival. He won All-Australian selection, the WA State MVP and finished second to Luke Davies-Uniacke for the J.L. Williams Medal (the overall Best & Fairest for the Championships).

The following year, he was named Captain of the WA State 16s highlighting his enormous potential. However, in 2016, the Hale School student suffered the dreaded osteitis pubis, and was ruled out for the year.

He also drove his draft ranking higher at the AFL National Combine when he beat Nic Naitanui and Jared Brennan’s record in the Running Vertical Jump test, with 103 centimetres.

WHY PICK HIM?

He’s already been described as a “raging bull” and it is not hard to see why the comparisons have come about.

Hayden is as tough as they come, often throwing his weight around in the stoppages to win the contested possession, before finding a team-mate in open space.

As well as being a wrecking ball in tight, Hayden is a classy player with elite disposal by hand or by foot. His composure, reading of the play, two-way running and decision-making, makes him a tantalising prospect.
