    I'm pretty sure he was one of the Vic Country captains at u16 level as well, so you'd assume natutal progression means he'd be expected to make the carnival, and maybe he is a strong chance to be captain of the Falcons as well?

    Good point. If the draft is as strong as predicted he may well appear to be a latish pick but he presents as a very good FS chance , best we have had in a while if he has leadership capabilities. Shame he is not KP but thats just is just fate.

    I think a player has to be living in a northern state for 3 years before he turns 16 to be eligible for Academy bidding. Thats why Lachie Weller who moved to QLD when he was 15 was ineligible for Gold Coast Suns in his draft year.

    Correct. Also why Bailey Scott is eligible forGC as he has lived there long enough as well as Geelong and North.

    If he doesnt want to leave his friends they are in the box seat. But it may come down to which club offers the most playing time, money,development for future and chances of finals etc and GC don't have a great track record on the last 2.

    Its hard to work out what each club would look like to a young kid.. a better chance to play , more traditional clubs and probably a better development program. Play AFL and stay home with mates or willing to choose to move if he sees a Vic club as a standout etc. If he trains at all the clubs he can at least get some sort of vibe to base his choice on. And perhaps the chance to play at the club with SAD still around could be something we could offer that the other cant.
    The easy option is to stay home. If he chooses Vic then one would suspect that he is serious about his footy.

    One played Falcons last year and didn't get drafted. Im not sure if he's still eligible for Falcons as an over-ager this year but I think he signed for our VFL side.

    There's another Cooper Stephens who'll debut for the Falcons this year ... same name different person. He's supposedly a jet.

    True. They need to do enough to be draftable but not enough that theyll all get top 20 bids.

    Bailey Scott kicked a goal on debut there too. Good sign he is playing some Falcons games means at least he is keeping his options open between us and GC.

    It's not the same Bailey Scott. This one is from Colac.

    Really? Can we sneak him into a photoshopped jumper so GC bid on him with a 1st rounder and then we don't match and they have to keep him? Haha.
