It seemed as though most of this years recruits were all being followed for many years. and in fact Flynn at least had no or few games that year - so While highly preferential, its not the be ll and end all.

I'd be amazed if the footy department doesn't have extensive files on at least 200 players from 14-15 years of age onward.

I read something about North sponsoring Tarryn Thomas when he was about 12/13/14 as a junior before we were even heavily linked to him so you are 100% right

They are meeting parents , following their development and would have broad awareness of virtually all juniors

The final year is very important but it’s only a part of it.

Luke Davies-Uniacke (groin) – TBC
Majak Daw (pectoral) – 3-4 weeks
Taylor Garner (hamstring) – indefinite
Kyron Hayden (Achilles) – 3-4 weeks
Ben Jacobs (concussion) – indefinite
Flynn Perez (knee) – 4-5 weeks
Kayne Turner (foot) – 4-5 weeks
Ed Vickers-Willis (knee) – 4-5 weeks

North Melbourne has a decent injury list but in reality how many of the casualties would be considered walk-up starts in the best 22? Majak Daw (pectoral) certainly, Kayne Turner and Luke Davies-Uniacke potentially, but unfortunately the remainder are far more familiar with the medical room than the selection table. Nick Larkey (foot) has had his training wound back in recent weeks to manage a hot spot but the exciting key forward is expected to play in Round 2. Fringe Kangaroos Aiden Bonar, Mason Wood, Tristan Xerri and Dom Tyson will again be vying for one of the four interchange spots when coach Rhyce Shaw sits down on Thursday to pick the team. Keen to see Josh Walker in action after the recycled swingman was knocked out early in the Round 1 win over St Kilda, while Jack Ziebell, who injured his knee in the season-opener, has returned in top nick.

Nice to have these guys back!; Aiden Bonar, Mason Wood, Tristan Xerri and Dom Tyson

A decent run and we could be in good shape in a months time.

I'm still hoping having a fit Tyson can add extra pressure on the our midfield to maintain spots. He has his weaknesses but very experienced and plenty of skills when fit and in form.

No mention of Polec's injury - I thought he had a calf strain?

So Kyron didn't pull up well from the intra club ...or is this just out of date?

How can they be quoting Hayden as 3-4 weeks when he played in the last intra-club?
