Don’t know much about him myself, but someone on here said he’s a prospective #1 pick. Bold call if even remotely close to that.
Changing the rules could be tricky considering clubs will have already put time, money & effort into development of certain potential players and would surely fight against any change which could cost them a blue chip player. Whilst the AFL don’t seem to care about others opinions, either have the special/academy systems or don’t. Long term it would kill what they are trying to do though by expanding development areas to get more involvement.
But to finish, they will probably change the rules & he’ll end up at Essendon.
The AFL introduced a rule this year that says any NGA player who transfers to Oakleigh Chargers can't be picked up by the "owning" club in the NGA system, meaning we will lose all rights to JUH.
It's called the "Up Yours Oakleigh" rule (yeah, they can't spell ) and after 30 years it's finally an opportunity for the Empire to strike back at the upstarts from the working class west who won't accept their rightful place at the bottom of the dung heap.
2020 Prospect Nick Stevens will play for Geelong College instead of Rebels this season
Nick is attending Geelong College this year, so we won’t have access to him too much due to school football commitments. He played some good football last year for the Vic Country under-16 team. He’s a good size and shape and he has a great work ethic and good skills, but he’s a work in progress.”
POTENTIAL DRAFT SURPRISE PACKET
Saad El-Hawli (Altona Juniors): “Saad is a member of the Western Bulldogs’ Next Generation Academy who has come into the squad this year. He’ll play off half forward and he knows where the goals are. He has elite football smarts and really good agility and speed.”
