SA v WA state game is on this weekend. Last audition for the mid-season draft. Most attention will be on the WA squad going by this review of the SA forward line
In the absence of injured Glenelg star Josh Scott (broken arm), the attack could be headed up by Eagle Jack Hayes with plenty of medium-sized goal kickers such as Bulldogs Justin Hoskin and Troy Menzel, West’s Jonathan Beech, North’s Lewis Hender and Eagle Jared Petrenko.
If I have it right the following players have played AFL and second group have been rookies on AFL lists
1)Troy Menzel, Mitch Grigg, Dom Barry, Sam Colquhoun, Danyle Pearce, Jared Petrenko
2)Justin Hoskin, Keenan Ramsey, Matthew Panos, Anthony Wilson, Will Snelling, Jonathan Beech
Port juniors from pre 2015, ie lost zones at end of 2014, that ended up at other clubs
Justin Hoskin (2010 reserves), Keenan Ramsey (2014 reserves), Matthew Rose (2010 A grade + reserves), Anthony Wilson (2010 U/18's + reserves), Zane Kirkwood (2010 A grade + reserves),
Then there is Barry, Colquhoun, Pearce and Snelling who have spent time with the Power at Alberton.
I liked the look of Mayo playing one of his first games for Subi league last weekend. Was colts leading goalkicker last year and played with Schofield junior in their premiership victory. One to monitor going forward. Reminds me a bit of Mason Shaw who I felt with better KPF management could have made it.
Jarvis Pina might be very good value as a mid-season pickup if we're looking for something long term. Pickett hasn't been seen yet this year due to injury but hope he gets an opportunity somewhere.
