We've still got three years to wait before we can draft him, so not until 2022 (at the earliest) will we see him playing for us. If he continues to develop as expected that's going to seem like an awfully long wait!

With Ned Guy onboard we seem to be much more adept at manipulating the draft to our advantage. So I wouldn't be surprised if we did some horse trading pre-draft should young Nick prove worthy of first round bids. Just as we did this year ala Beams/Quaynor.

We will not be able to trade anymore first round p9cks for a while.

ND turns 16 next year. Saw him play in the Kew Derby and kicked the winning goal from the boundary on the wrong side for a right footer. He will be top 5 in his draft.

So we need to trade out our 1st Round pick for 2021.
Trade in a mid 2nd Round pick.
Then we bundle 2 x 2nd Round picks with a 3rd & 4th Round...generating a rough points to match a bid for pick 5.
We have already traded out our 1st Round for 2019...hence we MUST keep our 2020 1st Round pick, to ensure we have the flexibility in 2021.

Edit: we also need to order in more coffee for Ned Guy...to keep him going for the next few years

But you were able to SEE him do it; rookie chance at best.

If he’s worth a first rounder in 2021 of course...

Under 16's carnivals etc normally get a bit of exposure, so sure to hear a bit around then.

If the IQ & WK publicity over the past month was anything to go by, young Nick will become the most well known 16 year old in the country.

Happened to see a bit of ND playing for Carey seniors v Haileybury seniors earlier this yr.

Ben King played that day but it was very windy so better for someone like ND. Carey won, which was Haileybury's only lost in 2 years. The standard's very good with Hail having 6 draftees last yr & the 2 Kings this yr.

Didn't initially know it was ND yet noticed he looked dangerous for someone under av height. Bit of an opportunist, calm and confident. He basically looked like a solid member of a good team.

The exciting part for me was seeing a player turning 15 playing 3 yrs above his level (Yr 9A) in such a high standard and not looking out of place. My son is a yr older and had 2 guys from his level (Yr 10A) playing, but we've never heard of a Yr 9er playing senior.

On a passing look, ND wasn't in the team due to pace, height, strength or a 100cm vertical. So it had to be more skills, balance, reading the game, etc - like Daics himself. But plenty of promise just to get a game at that standard.

FYI, this is a screen grab from ~4 weeks before that match:
Carey Grammar (CY)
R1: lost to Melbourne Grammar by 32 points
R2: defeated Geelong Grammar by 38 points
R3: lost to St Kevin’s by 48 points
R4: defeated Brighton by nine points
R5: defeated Wesley by six points
R6: defeated Xavier by one point

Summary: A strong Carey team is sitting third on the APS ladder and this is largely due to its midfield strength. Bottom-agers Matthew Rowell and Noah Anderson already project as top 10 prospects for next year’s AFL National Draft, with the duo combining as Carey’s best on ground on multiple occasions this year. Despite his size, Rowell competes with the stronger inside midfielders in the draft pool with his quick hands on the inside a key trait – while Anderson is a big ball winner and can hurt you with his disposal. Young Nick Daicos is a while away from his draft year, but has booted some goals throughout the year. Midfielder Oliver Simpson and school captain Bailey Wraith have also had some good moments throughout the season. A one-point win over the previously undefeated Xavier was a massive result, with losses to Melbourne Grammar and St Kevin’s earlier in the season the only two defeats.

2021 draft eligible iirc. 2022 should be his first season in AFL.

Then the wait for a Buckley
Hopefully the Buckley boys grow to kpp height, because I really cant see them squeezing out any of the Daicos, Brown or - I think its 5, Quaynor boys. Thank god Murphy is now a ruckman, otherwise we'd end up with a really unbalanced list.

Yes, that's precisely what I meant (but I can see how that may have been misinterpreted)!! When I said "not until 2022 (at the earliest) will we see him playing for us" I did mean (even if he debuts in his first season) that 2022 would be the earliest we can see him in a match. He is indeed draft eligible at the end of 2021, so we are likely to have him on our books by the end of that year!

Unfortunately for us, it seems he was born very early in January 2003, if he'd come along in the dying days of 2002 we'd have had access to him a year earlier. Still, that gives him plenty of time to develop, and for people around here to be going crazy with anticipation!!
