    If we get a pick in the 30's surely Callum Coleman - Jones comes into consideration?

    Not too many ruckmen/forwards left after that who suits our needs?

    Just remembered that Uniacke- Davies running gait is a dead-set copy of Goddard.

    We've been 'linked' to two and maybe three Cat B rookie talls.

    There is Mark Bradke's son and a tall indigenous kid whose dad was posting on Bomber Blitz. There is something floating around about a 2m cricketer too.

    My guess is that we'll have a loaded Cat B list this year with an Irish kid and possibly two talls. If this happens I'd expect us to recruit smalls in the drafts.

    Anyone know if the under 18 all-star game is online somewhere? Can’t find it.

    Given we'll likely have late picks only in a pretty weak draft are there any inside mids in the state leagues worth looking at? Someone who gets clearance after clearance but has some other limitations (height, kicking etc) that has meant they have been overlooked in the past. It's a huge hole in our list.

    I suspect if Tim Kelly tested well at the combine, he could go in the 40's or 50's.

    Both Nick Hind and Alex Boyse dominated the state combines

    Both topped the 20m sprint with Hind 2.92 and Boyse 2.98

    Both came top 10 in the ability with Hind 8.36 and Boyse 8.52

    Boyse was 2nd in the Standing Vertical Jump with 79cm

    Both Boyse and Hind came top 10 in the Running Vertical Jump Boyse with 84.

    Boyse didn't perform well in the Yo-Yo test.

    Seb Williams the big winner out of TAC the young Sandringham midfielder/forward came 6th in the 20m sprint, 7th in standing vertical, 10th in running vertical and 3rd in the Yo-Yo test. On the small side but would be a worthy draftee.

    Hind finished equal 3rd in the yo-yo? Recorded a 22.1 or something IIRC

    No idea, earliest would be around 40 I reckon, Boyse a better chance to go in the main draft.

    Are you counting all of the combines? That makes sense then.

    Just the state combine 10th was 21.1 so he was close

    D_P_S which available kids from pick 45 onwards do you think tick the big bodied midfielder box?

    Hard to say which players will be available, ill have a better idea closer to the draft but Eastern's Tom North and Subaico's Kyron Hayden could be good options.

    Now sitting with pick 24 and 29 and could be keeping both depending on what Saad and Stringer cost us. (Might both be future picks)

    What do you think of grabbing a pair like Jack Petruccelle and Zac Bailey to try and shore up our inside midfield brigade D_P_S?

    Petruccelle is far from proven as a mid, not confident he becomes one at the next level. Plenty of bigger mids like Worpel, Starcevich, Mynott will be available. Im not confident we will keep 24 and 29 but you never know one of those 2 guys could slide to our 3rd round pick.

    If we get Worpel, I will be SO happy.
