Draftees from outside the AFL system

Recommended Posts

Terry Wallace has revealed his top 10 players outside the AFL system who clubs should consider recruiting in this year’s draft. I think he erred in omitting Sam Collins of Werribee who I would rank ahead of anyone on this list.

Plough’s top 10 potential draftees outside the AFL system

Plough’s top 10 state level players (not in any order):

Mitch Grigg (Norwood/SANFL)
Shane McAdam (Sturt/SANFL)
Josh Clayton (Southport/NEAFL)
Michael Gibbons (Williamstown/VFL)
Ryan Gilmore (Townsville/Gold Coast Academy)
Josh Corbett (Werribee/VFL)
Sam Sturt (Peninsula Grammar/Victoria)
Jye Bolton (Claremont/WAFL)
Jordan Morrissey (County Carlow/Ireland)
Will Hayes (Footscary/VFL)

... and there are a couple of handy players at Casey who he has overlooked.

Poor again from Wallace. 

AFL system ?? Will Hayes is in AFL System with Footscray/Bulldogs.

Michael Gibbons will not cut it at AFL level. 

Josh Clayton has improved but not enough. Tyler Roos is as good if not better. 

Further players from the SANFL/VFL/NEAFL/WAFL then

Sam Collins  Werribee vfl

Abe Davis South Adelaide sanfl

Marty Hore Collingwood vfl

Jay Lockhart  Casey vfl

Mitch Maguire  Canberra NEAFL

Chris Jansen. Kangas vfl

Blues and Suns to get priority access to state league players to select or trade before the draft. 

Wtf. 

Demons got no priority. Sure we lost S$cully and Frawley$ to get compo picks but not free priority access. 

smells of bias and Suns “poor us syndrome”

That is quite an advantage.  We have recruited Vandenberg, Hannan, Fritsch and ? from State leagues paid for with draft picks.  All now multiple finals players - GCS and Carlton get the like for free.

TBH I don't mind GCS getting a helping hand but not Carlton - They tanked, have had a plethora of top draft picks, deliberately trade out their experienced talent, had mega favourable fixures (Home games at the G vs big crowds),  FTA favourtism, are poorly managed and are now asking for more handouts!!  Oh, I forgot - the AFL and Eddie want to make them 'great' again!

Why cant they just get more picks at the back end of the draft to pick up any nor selected?

After watching Mitch Grigg yesterday for Norwood he deserves another AFL lifeline.

The state leagues etc are not a pot of gold.

Leigh Matthews made the excellent point a few weeks back that there is not that much there that has not been thoroughly picked over in the draft saying look at Essendon who had the right to bring on whoever they wanted from the various leagues and how many played on the following year.

Sure there are the exceptions but picking those exceptions is still a lottery.

So what did GCS and Brisbane get as well as this?

Can sort of understand the Suns getting some help as theyre a new club and nobody wants to play there.  And their draft concessions were nowhere near as generous as what GWS got.

Carlton getting a helping hand is a disgrace.

I actually agree with something Chris Scott said for the first time ever. It’s a good idea, but to introduce it now after club recruiters have been studying these players for the last year is ridiculous.

Has it been denied or not announced yet? Article said assistance packages still being considered.

So bloody typical of Gillon and his henchmen making decisions on the run.

What a f'n disgrace are the current AFL leadership.

If they only got access to the first 2 state league players, 1 pick each,  that is not bad.

No Priority Pick to give Crows and they don't want to give Pick 1. How do they do the deal now?

Okay. I couldn't work out why McGovern would choose to go there anyway. Maybe they were going to throw a shizen load of cash at him.

Blues want Walsh and he goes pick 1. They will not give it up.

Other deals will have to be done.

Note the Barrett story specifically stating that these priority access picks are tradeable. Why would they include that stipulation if it wasn't going to happen?

I have it on strong mail that Carlton will use that first choice to select Shane McAdam from Sturt. They'll then trade his rights to Adelaide for Mitch McGovern, with possibly some late pick swaps. He's this years Tim Kelly and valued at around 15-20. Gold Coast and several other clubs not happy they are missing him.

I think all these players should be free agents and bottom clubs should just use spare salary to sign them, or if not let them pick guys to get for free but not until after pick 30 or 40. As mentioned above we've given up draft picks for Hannan, Fritsch, Vanders, Wagner etc. I don't want to lose a chance at Jay Lockhart. Wouldn't mind Corey Wagner either as a rookie.

I didn't see anything from any of the Casey players in the last two games to think any of them are worthy of being picked up by an AFL side.

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and
