Well done to Bailey for receiving the Rising Star nomination this week. Unfortunate that we missed out on getting Bailey in his draft year but there's hope for the future. His brother Darby plays for the Broadbeach juniors and is coming through our academy system at the moment. I believe he is draft eligible next year. Obviously if we can convince Darby to stay with us then that increases our chances of bringing Bailey home in the future. Having the two Scott brothers playing for their hometown team on the Gold Coast would be a great story. If anyone is wondering, apparently Darby is quite the talented footballer as well.Hopefully we get him back in a few years, who knows.
Yeah, seems like we are finally sorting out our player development.
Ballard and Powell are shining examples of that. As 2nd year players they are looking like they could be potential B/A graders if they continue to develop.
Let's hope it plays out like it did with the Swallow brothers where we recruit the younger brother and the older brother decides he wants to leave North to join us later in his career.
