The way he moved (Gore) reminded me of Toby Greene, running to a spot to receive the ball.

Budarick breaking clear of the middle and putting a nice kick to the dangerous space inside 50 was also really nice.

Thought he was a Benowa high student
You're right. I mixed him up with somebody else. Benowa have done a pretty good job of producing AFL players over last few decades - Daniel Merrett, Dayne Zorko and Brent Renouf. I'm fairly sure they have a good relationship with the Surfers Demons and that obviously has a lot to do with the close proximity between the school and club.

Sam Hilton-Joyce kicked another 2 goals for the Surfers Paradise seniors yesterday. He's up to 9 goals in 3 senior QAFL games now.

I also noticed the QAFL Vimeo channel (https://vimeo.com/channels/qafl) uploads every quarter of every QAFL game. Couple that with the NEAFL YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/NorthEastAFL) which uploads every NEAFL game as well as the NAB League YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVF9Aw4e89CY2u31_UkPCOA), and we literally have video access to all top level footy being played in south east QLD. This makes following our academy prospects much easier.

Suns young gun’s draft aim


Anyone else getting Zorko vibes from the constant mentioning of Budarick's height? Connor is 1cm shorter than Ainsworth yet no one talks about Ainsworth's height being an issue. Very strange.

I'm torn with where I want Budarick to fall in the draft. Of course I'd love him to be a top 10 prospect but I also don't want us to use the Lions' first rounder we have (currently pick 15) on him. If we get a top 10 pick with our first rounder, a top 15 pick with Brisbane's first rounder AND Budarick then we should be very happy with that outcome.

In the drafts board on poster has submitted some stats from the recent Allies vs. Vic Country (below) and Allies vs Vic Metro practice matches.
They played them back - back

Crossly did ok in the first with 17 possessions, 5 clearances and a goal.
Matt Conroy kicked 3 goals from 9 possessions and 5 marks, also had 19 hitouts
Joyce quieter.
Ace didn't touch the ball in the second half (so may have played in game 2 as well)

In the other game Budarick had 21 possessions - in depth stats not available.
