Country regions (minus Dandenong) need more assistance before rezoning the East/inner south east

Not sure how much more you can really do here.

You would be creating a much worse scenario for an outer metro kid having to training in Bendigo or Ballarat or playing in Morwell, than what you mentioned before by rezoning an inner metro kid to another side 10mins further away.

Oh no this isn't a re-zoning situation, some country kids already travel 2-3 hours for their closest NAB League club let alone being re-assigned to another one, no I'm talking about additional resources for country clubs

This point makes me wonder how long it would've taken the McDonald brothers from Edenhope and Jeremy Cameron from Dartmoor to get to North Ballarat Rebels' home ground.

What’s Amiss like as a Key-forward we hear a lot about Williams and JVR but not so much on him why do you have him rated higher than the other two? PMBangers

Liam Duggan resided in Darley/Bacchus Marsh, schooled at St.Pat's in Ballarat should have been a Ballarat Rebel? ;)

A lot of the the current and past GWV/Ballarat Rebels lads schooland and board at St.Pat's or Clarendon College in Ballarat, Jarrod Berry, Hugh McCluggage and Willem Drew for example attended Clarendon College. Both McDonald boys boarded at St.Pat's, not sure about Jeremy Cameron.

Let's shift it a bit.

How long would the travel have been if you take out the boarding/private schools?

Amiss is the best performed this year with an incredible conversion rate in front of goals, got really good leading patterns and can take full stretch marks at pace which means as long as he gets some sort of separation he's generally holding the marks, but is capable at ground level as well so very rarely is he going to be taken out of a contest like some KPF's can be. The biggest knock on him from my view is that we haven't really seen him push up the ground a whole heap, he's very much an inside 50 player which I'm not entirely convinced has a place in the modern game

I've only seen Fahey once against the cats reserves, where he was the clear best player for the Academy. Why isn't he rated higher. Looked very very good in that game.

Guys that are just general defenders, or just general forwards even, aren't guys I'll ever see as super high prospects unless they're truly exceptional at the role or have really good traits that not many at the next level have, so Fahey really only playing the one position is a knock, but the lack of consistency when he has played and his durability this year in particular worries some

you are kidding, right?
Oakleigh and Sandringham have most of the private schools being feeder clubs and these schools attract young talent from across Vic and even across Australia, so they are usually stronger because of this, Scholarships create an advantage, maybe evening out private schools as feeder clubs could even out the comp, but i think it being unbalanced is how people like it and i doubt if the powers that be care if it changes.

I'll get on to Cal about that one for you mate, any favourites you want me personally to ensure end up going first round?

I'll make up a list of park footballers for you. It'd be great if the first half of the draft was clogged up with nobodies, then Sydney might get a chance at one of Erasmus, Hobbs, Goater or Rachele.

August Top 20.png

So another monthly update with not much movement overall, dropped from 25 to 20, mainly because that 20-35 bracket is ridiculously hard to rank as it stands, so much so that when looking over notes, reviewing old or watching new vision Murley was 4 different players over the weekend. Williams, Van Rooyen and Fahey have dropped out of my top 20 in favour of Ward, Amiss and Brown who I feel have all been going along nicely for most of the season but particularly this past month have shown more appealing traits (Amiss I also hadn't seen much of, but with the 3 WA 19s games I've got a good gauge now), whilst the others are regressing in their performances, especially with Van Rooyen and Williams in those Under 19's games. As usual happy to field questions on rankings and I know some of the numbers on the graphic are hard to read soz
