Quite a few SKOBS boys, I wonder if that's through the Wallis/Libba/Hunter connection to the school? Have seen Gleeson and Kanakis, both very strong at VAFA level.

Where's Lochie Dawson's profile?
Lochie is classed as a rookie vfl player
So he can only play if injury to the vfl players
So he doesnt get a photo but he is in the main photo

AFL/VFL owned clubs have a cap on main signings but can have 4 rookie plahers for developmemt and injuries

Unfortunately for Kyle he is the last type of player we need on our list. Still have a glut of mids, especially slowish inside mids so don't think he's the type of player we will look at in the mid season draft. Just in the last draft alone we added Bailey Smith to the midfield that was already stacked and still have West and Hayes battling for spots there. Looks like a decent player, hopefully gets picked up by Sydney or maybe a Richmond / GC where the midfield depth isn't as strong.

Been watching the replay of the VFL game from the weekend against Box Hill. I have been watching Boyd. Now I know we’re playing him in the ruck to get his fitness and touch back, but if we’re gonna play him as a forward when he comes back in the AFL side, then we need to get games into him at VFL level where he’s playing mostly forward. He’s never gonna make it as a forward if we play him there now and again

I thought it was mostly from necessity. English resting, Trengove AFL, Sweet suspended. Think Sweet will go to first ruck once he's back (next week?)
