What are we round 2 vfl. Not much time for them to "kill IT". Considering their standard is so hard to watch, NO ONE IS REALLY GOING TO STAND OUT.
You can put it down to several things but basically most teams have a few fringe afl players a couple of older guys who are fading and lots of kids. Gone are the hard bodied journeymen that could really play and made players earn their kicks. If you don’t believe me then how are port Melbourne so successful without any AFL listed players and young guys that recruiters have passed over. Mature guys who can play usually take the money on offer at local clubs rather than play as top ups making way for listed kids. There is provision for these guys to play as top ups, their listed by VFL clubs but nominate and play at local clubs. Generally they don’t get used a lot as that would mean young listed guys have to sit it out.
When Billings, Sinclair and lonie etc have gone back they have Killed it racking up huge possession counts, AFL standard players should stand out at that level. So after what was it 5 practice games and the first round in the books if players have just been ok then if they aren’t developing youngsters or returning from injury then they probably aren’t going to make it.
Dunstan will get 30 plus with ease imo, he’s too good for that level and not quite a lock at AFL.
