Former Sydney Academy player who blew out a knee in 2017, lead the NEAFL MVP until overtaken late toPick 67 - Angus Baker
Sydney have been watching him this year, and he was named the NEAFL rising star for good reason. Trained with the Swans last year too but missed out on a rookie spot. This year, I think he's done well enough to justify a spot on the senior list. Is a ball magnet playing in the midfield, and has a great endurance base and leg speed that will see him feature in the 22 this year. I haven't grabbed a proper inside mid yet, and I think Baker is a no-brainer for this pick after considering a few others (Potter, Garcia and Warner were the main ones)
finish second, averaged 30 possessions and 6 marks a game.
