Top 5 from Victoria in my opinion in order are
- Nick Daicos
- Tyler Sonsie
- Josh Sinn
- Josh Rachele
- Ben Hobbs
Tyreece is a beast inside mid and will only continue to improve as his endurance base improves over the season and he spends more time as an inside mid other than full foward. Expect Tyreece to go 30-45 and with Cilecken he had a rippr performance today but not sure about him getting drafted, he will have an impact but usually dosent play that spare roll.
My top main hope for next years crop hasn't been talked about much but for me it's clear. Harry Flynn in my opinion is a clear top 20 and will hopefully make the metro team and have a good championship. In order my top 5 would go,
1. Harry Flynn
2. Lochie Reedy
3. Cal Verrel
4. Campbell Greeves
5. Lewis Hayes / Hayden Smith
Expect a strong draft crop from this bunch with them recently going undefeated in their carnival beating oakleigh.
In my draft class in Vic we are short of tall key forwards but the main man would have to be Lukic from Chargers. Great athletiscm and damaging on the scoreboard but just needs to work on consistency.Key forwards. Thanks for this, it’s interesting to have the insights of a NAB league player.
If you’re a recruiter from a clue, and you have the second pick (assuming Horne is gone) and excluding Daicos, would you support selecting Sonsie ? What are Sonsie’s strengths?? And things to work on?? Who on an AFL list is comparable?Tyler Sonsie was head and shoulders above the crop, total domination and although his normal ball use wasn't up to scratch he dominated around the ground kicking 2 majors and collecting a handy 34. Jake Arundel and Cory Preston were also very impressive playing as small/medium forwards with the occasional midfield rotation. Tyreece showed spurts and was clean in conjestion and Marc Massarotti was a bull around the contest. For Calder the standouts were slim but Sam Clohesy was clean on the outside using his smarts and speed to collect 24 and a goal.
Thanks, great info, appreciate it. I'll be looking out for Sonsie. Hawks look a reasonable chance to get pick 2 and have a chance to grab him. We are in some serious need of class, speed and goal kicking from our mids and he sounds like he ticks all three boxes. I liked the looks of Sinn, but if he is more a defender than a mid, then Hawks best look at the pure midfielders given we're pretty well off in the back half of the ground.In my honest opinion after this year of football I expect daicos and Sonsie to be the top 2 picks of the draft. Sonsie is a ready made afl player that has elite speed and is by far the best kick on both feet i've ever seen. His decision making under pressure and smooth moving makes him similar to a pendles but he also has a massive scoreboard impact. His endurance is his weakness with him struggling to get to every contest causing a lot of rotations but no doubt that will be worked on at AFL level. Expect him to play like a Rozee/Bruhn in his first few years of afl but I expect him to be abit ahead of them at his age.
