From what I think W.Sabolch & Mitchell Kunigiskis.

Few other speculative picks too but I'm no recruiter so idk. These are the kids who stood out to me.

Will be able to make a more coherent judgement post the championships
Mate if we continue with our good form academies will probably be self destructed even tho its round 3 and we haven't won anything.

Our academy has only produced a Mark of the Year and Rising Star award.

That's it. Not even a single AA nomination. Big picture is that they need to stay and be supported

What sort of players are Sabolch and Kunigiskis?

Also side not I can only imagine how many times I am going to butcher the spelling of both names for the next 15 years if both are drafted.

Its the first round picks where system fails so why not make it that bids made in first round have to matched with first round picks and in cases like this years draft where swans already used that pick its get taken from next years first pick and points fall short than year after aswell unless team can trade for another first round pick to make up points instead stacking lots latter picks to make to make up points.

I think in particular with his unique surname that he might google himself and come across it, every chance IMO.

(If I was a decent academy prospect I am sure I would google my name lol)
Always been curious how many would actually read what football forums think of them or are they told to stay off any social media.

You can bet they do. I mean nobodies like us google our own names. If I was a person who might be getting drafted into the AFL I would be googling my name all the time :p

Also watching the video he seems to be great in traffic but he needs to work on his kicking a little bit.

Did a bit of digging but couldn't find a comprehensive list of every player out of the Academy that we've drafted, does anyone know? Would be curious on the hits v misses.
