  1. The Jake Lever Thread

  2. 2017 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch

    Good stuff WJ. Fair to say he's already on plenty of radars with his APS form. Only recently gave indications that he may go with footy over cricket.
  3. Barrett Article on AFL.COM

    Personally not fussed either way, but recall Barrett being heavily critical of Melbourne's recruiting for a number of years, referring to a 'scattergun' approach. At times he wasn't far off the mark. It probably continued on to the Kelly/Tyson, Salem, Hunt trade. There were periods where he seemed fairly harsh on Melbourne, but in retrospect I'm not sure whether it was particularly unfair. Seems to be very positive on where Melbourne sits this year.
  4. The Jake Lever Thread

    You've heard correctly GT. Depth this year is non existent. Still some quality around where our first round pick would land, but most clubs wouldn't place a whole lot of value on our 2nd rounder, so could see our 2018 first being demanded in any deal for Lever. If we couldn't get away with this year's first rounder and a player, then I'd try to bundle this year's first and next year's second rounder. Absolute fall back position '17 & '18 first round picks, but with Adelaide's 2018 2nd rounder to come back in return.

    Sam McClure saying we are front runners along with the Bulldogs on SEN Breakfast. Lyon was asked whether he knew anything about it and he said 'no' while smiling and nodding.

    Thanks mate. Petrucelle definitely catches the eye. Reckon if he cleans up his ball use a little and has a few more high possession games in the back end of the season, he'll jump right up. Has some very exciting traits.

    Thanks PSD, good stuff. AFL.com have profiled mature age prospects out of SA as well. A familiar name in Dom Barry makes an appearance: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-07-12/worth-a-look-sanfl-players-pushing-their-draft-case

    Nice. Any thoughts on who might be around the mark just beyond the top 10? Someone like Matthew Ling maybe? I reckon there's currently a clear top 2 (Rayner & LDU) and then a group of around 7 or so players (Cerra and Sutherland could push up from that pack). Then throw a blanket over the next 10-15. Chook-lotto territory beyond that. I previously liked Garner or Coffield for our picks, but both are likely to be out of reach now.

    Matt Balmer from AFL Draft Central with an update of his rankings post champs: https://www.afldraftcentral.com.au/2017/07/10/matt-balmers-2017-afl-draft-july-power-rankings/ And a little primer on possible mature age draftees who are running around in the WAFL. In a draft pool with shallow depth, we might see a few more from the state leagues getting the call. http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-07-11/worth-a-look-wafl-stars-pushing-their-draft-case Any thoughts on these guys @Pennant St Dee?

  12. Australian Under 18 Championships 2017

    Allen's already entrenched himself inside the top 20 with a good showing at the champs, if he can flash that midfield game in the back half of the season, a spot inside the top 10 is there for him. I think the champs probably saw more players hurt reputations rather than any really push themselves up. Perhaps Coffield and Constable the only two that really pushed their claims. Even Davies-Uniake was patchy over the last few games. https://www.afldraftcentral.com.au/2017/07/06/scouting-notes-vic-metro-vs-allies/ BTW, you must be pleased with how Sam Powell-Pepper's started his career PSD, IIRC you were very enthusiastic about his prospects.

    This article suggests that we've put forward a similar offer: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-07-06/jake-wants-to-be-at-the-club-we-want-jake
  14. Australian Under 18 Championships 2017

    Not sure if it was down to interrupted preparation due to injury niggle or the step up in oppo attention, but O’Brien wasn’t able to impose himself as much as I’d hoped for Vic Country. Has a good tank and a beautiful left foot, but may be one of those players that takes some time to work out how to shake a tag. Def more of an outside midfielder at this stage, and the stats may prove me wrong, but it didn’t look like he won many contested possessions over the last 3 weeks.
