    Can see this guy being the first draftee to play AFL, that's not a slight on Gallucci but Poholke looks to have the body and skills to play early

    The last two mates to come together were Angwin and Handby. I am sure this will be different.

    recruitment is far different now then it was then. The draft was very much a lottery. I suspect more first round draft picks play AFL footy these days compared to that era.

    Both Gallucci and Poholke have the temperament.

    Very excited about these two

    I don't know why but both players exude confidence. I get the impression that Gallucci could steal the ball and runaway with it, while Poholke would go through a brick wall to get it.:D

    Gallucci and Poholke, among the five teenagers selected by the Crows at the national draft, hope to eventually form a dynamic one-two midfield punch.

    “We’ve probably known each other for 12-18 months now and it’s a massive positive to be able to share the journey with him,” said Poholke, a Port Adelaide supporter who dreamt the night before the draft that he would be picked by Adelaide.

    that is very odd a Victorian growing up been a port power supporter.

    Well.. In 2004 he would have been about 6 years old and he liked the shirt with the thunder bolt.

    He sounded pretty confident on the radio compared to Jarman who was quite nervous.

    Both kids sounded pretty enthusiastic though. The SANFL side should be a bit better to watch with fewer players just going through the motions (Lowden, Henderson, etc).

    He also said that he was a port supporter before Tom Lynch went to GC and then he became a Suns supporter. But apparently that doesn't sound as good to the Advertiser reporters.

    I think Myles might be taller than what the stats say, he and Charlie Cameron are apparently the same height yet in the video on the clubs website when he meet Charlie, Myles is clearly taller. Of course Charlie could be shorter than he's listed at but Seed is standing near them (who stands at 190cm), and there's not much difference between them. Reckon he's closer to 187-ish cm.

    Sounds like everyone we draft is a future leader.

    We got any followers for them to lead?

    Is he the first Myles our club has had?

    And the first Poholke... ever in the world?

    Leadership has to be the most overrated quality. Any club or organisation really only needs a couple of good ones.

    Jebediah Poholke I think you find was the first Poholke. He changed his name from Springfield after he realised their already was a Jebediah Springfield.
