Need you interstater's to keep us up to date with key forwards and key backs setting the SANFL & WAFL alight.
I follow the WAFL. Not sure there is anyone special still around.

SWAN DISTRICTS: COREY GAULT
The ex-Collingwood forward has been outstanding for Swan Districts in 2019. In five games, he has kicked a team-high seven goals, and is averaging 16 possessions, 15 hit-outs, six marks, three tackles and two inside 50s. His best performance came against West Perth in round four when he booted five goals from 18 touches. He also recorded 13 hit-outs, six marks and three tackles in that game. The 2017 Swans’ Best & Fairest winner is athletic, skilful, mobile and versatile – traits that make him an attractive prospect.

WEST PERTH: TYLER KEITEL
The 2018 Bernie Naylor Medallist is one of the key forward prospects in this year’s AFL mid-season draft pool. Standing at 196 centimetres, Keitel is versatile, agile, has excellent endurance and is a powerful contested mark. In 2018, Keitel booted 50 goals from 22 games and averaged 14 possessions, five marks, three hit-outs and two tackles, while so far in 2019, Keitel has kicked five goals from three games. Like Essendon’s forward Mitch Brown, Keitel is a strong contested mark, boasts excellent endurance, is versatile, and is also incredibly agile and mobile for someone his size.Can play back.

Mason Shaw 197 cms

MASON Shaw has been remarkably consistent as a reliable goalkicker for South Fremantle ever since returning from Port Adelaide and he's been rewarded in 2020 by winning the Bernie Naylor Medal as the WAFL's leading goal scorer.

Shaw returned to South Fremantle following his time in the AFL system at Port Adelaide back in 2016, and while he initially shared a role in a star-studded forward-line and now is the main spearhead, his goalkicking ability has been remarkably consistent no matter the situation.

Shaw kicked another two goals on Saturday night against Perth at Lathlain's Mineral Resources Park to give him 23 goals in eight matches for the shortened 2020 Optus WAFL Premiership Season.

Shaw's final tally of 23 goals saw him claim the Bernie Naylor Medal ahead of Logan McDonald (Perth) who kicked 21, Tyler Keitel (West Perth) 21, Alec Waterman (Claremont) 19, Leigh Kohlmann (Swan Districts) 17 and Anton Hamp (Claremont) 16.

Maybe short term options

What would there be, maybe 12-15 players each year that didn't look very likely at the end of their U/17 year but then have a great U/18 year and get drafted? But it's really only the Victorians that didn't get a chance last year, so maybe 6-8 of these players might be available at the mid-season draft (I think Victoria usually makes up about half of all draftees each year)? And then maybe 1-2 of those would be taken top 20 or, if we are lucky, top 10?

We absolutely have to take best available with our first pick. By the time the MSD gets to our second pick those players are probably all gone and we can look at positional needs.

Yep spot on, there are going to be some very good 19 year candidates for our first pick. Maybe we could look at someone at our second pick (if we have 2 pick) to help fill a need now.

If Covid had have happened in Clayton Oliver’s year, he wouldn’t have got drafted. Even Bontempelli was at the back of the pack going into his draft year. There will be quality talent at pick 1.

I wasn’t referring to just KP players, I’m referring to best available.

After no u18 footy for victorians in 2020, there is a high likelihood that someone that didn’t get drafted, should have. Scotty Clayton is big on that theory.
I’ve seen enough of Callow at Norwood in the trial games and round 1 against Port to believe he could be playing AFL this year. Reckon he will kick a few bags this year.

Please not another Lachie Hosie. Let's take someone who has a body shape and skill set suited to AFL level.

Also, could we please not take someone who then gets sent back to the VFL for the rest of the year despite the injury list and poor form of the AFL team, then give this bloke a contract extension for no good reason.

13 HO, 11 touches, 4 marks, 2 tackles, and a couple of sausage rolls.... statistically a better outing than Heath, who troubled the statisticians with 15 HO, 2 handpasses, and a tackle.

On stats, sounds like Moyle for chargers a good ruck prospect,,,31 HO, 7 tackles, and 10 touches to his name.

Corey Preston could be worth monitoring.

Overager who kicked 4 and named 2nd best for Eastern in R1 of the NAB League.

This from his AFLDraftCentral profile-


Corey Preston was expected to be one of the surprise packets for the Eastern Ranges this season with the 182cm, 77kg midfielder/forward one pegged for a big year. He did not manage to play for the Ranges in 2019, but has a number of exciting traits in the forward half such as his athleticism, overhead marking and goal sense that makes him dangerous in front of goal. Having not had that experience at NAB League or higher level yet, Preston is still an unknown quantity at that level, with his endurance as another area of improvement coming into the elite junior program. Preston is a midfielder at local level, but would have been playing as a small forward throughout the NAB League, which not only matches his strengths, but also allows him to get stints through the midfield without having full-time minutes in there due to his endurance. Along with his vertical leap, Preston knows how to move around in little space and uses the ball well by hand or foot, with a keen eye for goals. He positions himself well in the marking contest, but most importantly uses his strong hands which for his size are remarkable. Not afraid to take on more experienced and bigger opponents, Preston has those traits that make him hard to mark inside 50 with greater strength overhead than a lot of his smaller opponents, and then better speed than the hulking defenders. He can also use the ball well off his left foot with a number of times being able to have that keen goal sense to be on his right side but still use the outside of the left well. He will likely need more time to develop through the state league programs if he is to progress through to the top level, but the combination of his local football and athleticism make him an exciting prospect.
18 touches, 5 marks, 1 tackle to go with his 4 goals 2
