Another gem from SA, hopefully our Bailey Williams Mark II.
I will be going back and watching some of his games#51 Lachlan McNeil (League)
In a game where all the Eagles youngsters contributed well, McNeil was the best of the bunch. He provided relentless run along the wing and used the ball as well as anyone. McNeil’s high work rate allowed him to take a host of marks on the outer side. He used the ball well and his teammates clearly looked for him to hit a target going inside 50. But the clear highlight of his game was a terrific running goal in the second quarter, which featured two bounces and a beautiful finish. He concluded the match with 23 disposals, nine marks, two tackles, three clearances and six inside 50s. The Clare product missed out on being drafted as an 18-year-old last year, but after a great performance on Grand Final day and a consistent season at senior level with the Eagles, McNeil could find himself a home at AFL level at the second time of asking.
Scouting notes from the SANFL Grand Final
Just watched that quarter. Impressive work rate and a touch of flair to go with it.When I heard small mid I didn't have high hopes but I'm sold do yourself a favour and check out the second quarter of the SANFL grand final.
Never get sick of toumpas and hartung running aroundJust watched that quarter. Impressive work rate and a touch of flair to go with it.
We might have factored in his improvement trajectory in assessing him. Dalrymple loved to pluck out kids who were on a rapid development curve (e.g. Bont).
Lachie McWho, 19, only debuted this year and seems to have come on quickly during the season, averaging 18.6 disposals. Topped off with 23 disposals and a goal in the GF.
He's looks much better than Cal Porter, as a point of reference, but SANFL's obviously a different level to AFL senior footy.
