“AFL.com.au surveyed 12 clubs about who they would take with the top choice if Ugle-Hagan was unavailable.Club three: "It's very hard to find players like Riley Thilthorpe. He's big, competitive, athletic and a genuine footballer. He'd be the one for me."
Club eight: "Thilthorpe is it for us. His talent puts him ahead and the way the game is going, with his running ability and dual role he really fits into the way it's played."
