A player to watch out for is Gippsland Power skipper and midfield bull Bailey Humphrey who had 31 disposals and kicked four goals against the Northern Knights on return from almost three months off with a meniscus tear. So impressive was his form that it’s likely he will be added to the Vic Country squad for the final NAB National Championship game vs Vic Metro.

Apparently a bit of a Serong-style of player. Had 5 behinds to go with those 4 goals, he could have had an enormous day!

You don’t have Rueban Ginbey in your group and he is a player we’re into

Hi PSD. Reuben was in my group at about 23-25 range. He’s a good youngster as a inside mid, already played senior footy and looks like a young leader.  Jed Hagan is the other West Australian that I was thinking would be in the mix. But I might be a little gun shy of recommending youngsters from WA right now !!!

My apologies SONS, didn’t see him, don’t think he’s get the same tricks as Serong, just a real competitor and leader

He impressed when moved into midfield for WA, moved right up the boards. Seen much of him, @Pennant St Dee?

Morning Chaser, yes he goes to school with my oldest (who is in the year group below) I have seen him play over the last two seasons and really been impressed with him. He played all of last season at CHB and stood out to me as a good 3rd tall with game awareness, strong hands and really good rebound defender.  
Saw him play seniors for East Perth earlier in the season and he had no issues with the bigger bodies.  This season he’s spent a lot more time running through the middle and really began moving up the draft boards. Woey is the midfield coach at Wesley and he’s really pushed for Ginbey to play more through the middle. Tim Lamb came to watch him earlier in the season, big crowd there vs Scotch on Saturday so whether Tim was there again I’m not sure.  He’ll be a good player, not a superstar but just has that competitive nature and work ethic, does the basics well

Bit of a Deven Robinson mate? Really like him as a player, despite his yo-yoing in and out of the Brisbane side.

Long-time Melbourne fans will see a striking resemblance to Warren Dean in the way he moves and looks but he's obviously more of an around the ground player, more nimble than Warren and he can't kick it 80 metres. But he's a shorter dead ringer.  I think he will probably play a lot forward for Country if he plays.   In his Power games he plays a lot deep forward.  He's good on the lead, he can outwrestle the mid-sized defenders and he' s a good worker when he goes inside midfield, he's physical, he can run and carry and he's got some tricky footwork at times to get out of trouble.  The area of his game that warrants improvement or more consistency is ball use by foot.  It's not horrible but it's not elite.  I think clubs will like him as a guy that can play anywhere from midfield/wing/half-forward/deep forward.  Stylistic, the comp is a less-talented more blue collar Colin Sylvia.

His stats in the Northern Knights game need to be taken in context.  It's one of - if not - the best NAB team playing one of the worst.  The Knights best players are bottom agers, one Caddy, their most highly-touted player is a key forward prospect so out of the game.  The other two Alex D'arro  (an extremely light  outside wing/half back distributor) and Will Green (16yo ruck) are talented but overwhelmed.  The Power have their own equivalent of bottom agers, plus a handful of draft prospects for this year including Humphrey.

For what it's worth I think Konstanty is their best AFL prospect.  He's a classy player but a touch small and  I like the way  Cooper Vickery goes about his work as a Trent Rivers type third or fourth tallest back.   I'd be surprised if he isn't drafted or rookied and he doesn't get mentioned a lot.

The star of the day was Zane Duursma though.  On his game on the weekend, even taking into the account the opposition, he has thrust his name into very high draft pick calculation next year.  A very, very good player.

Was a bit wayward in front of goal this weekend kicking 2.5 to go with 23 disposals, 6 marks and 6 tackles.

Certainly sounds like a forward that likes to get involved.

I dont have him going that high, I think his teammate Jedd Busslinger will be the first WA boy selected.  Be interesting to see how he finishes the season, he has 2 school games left , with East Perth sitting out of finals contention with just an outside chance of making it .

Their Colts are currently sitting 3rd and should be safe, but they have a tough run home with 4 games against other contenders.

He will be able to play their last 3 H & A games. By that stage the seniors may be out of contention and a good finals series May see him go top 10

AFL Draft - August Power Rankings: Son-of-a-gun back on top of the class

Knightmare has installed everybody’s favourite Will Ashcroft back on top of his power rankings and no wonder. He’s a prolific ball winner, never lets you down and would walk into most AFL teams right now if it were possible. The Brisbane Lions are going to have to accumulate plenty of points to secure him.

Thanks for that @IvanBartul13  interesting you have Cadman going so early. Probably well out of our reach even if we get good picks for Jackson. For a draft that was called the land of giants there doesn’t seem to be a lot of key forwards. 
Hows does next years draft look for Big forwards?

Thanks for sharing your mock @IvanBartul13, great stuff.

It’s not until you see the 2023 names on paper that you start to get an idea of just how stacked next year’s crop is looking at this stage. Reid, Duursma & Moir, phwoar!

Jack Delean caught my eye as well in the championships. Certainly looks an impressive group next year.

@IvanBartul13 thanks IB13.  Dees likely only take 3 picks given we mightn’t have a lot of player turnover. Of course it all shifts if Jacko moves west.
Interesting and agree that the Kangas should be bold and grab Cadman. They’ve got the Mids in JHF (? Future), LDU, Simpkin, Powell, Phillips and Curtis. They need a key forward alongside Larkey.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
