Like Petracca, Oliver, Cadman, Ginbey, Holmes and others they come from nowhere. I see so many highly touted 15 and 16 year olds stagnate as others grow physically and get serious about their fitness catching up and/or passing many who stood out as juniors.  Trac was always expected to go, but he wasn’t first round tip a year out. He got fit and probably should have went #1. There will be plenty of bolters between now and next November  

Have you got any insight on Clay Hall @Pennant St Dee?

A familiar name to keep an eye out for next year is Melbourne NGA player Riak Andrew (192cm fwd), brother of Gold Coasts Mac Andrew who was taken at pick 5 in 2021. He will have to be outside pick 40 for us to have rights to him.

For some reason he didn't play any NAB league games this year, does anyone here know why?

Think he did a PCL that put him out for the year. I believe he’s started preseason with the Stingrays, so should be good to go for next season.

Has a similar athletic profile to his brother, so won’t be surprised if he jumps up with some exposure in the u18’s comp next year.

Maybe the kid should just rest up for another year and ensure he’s fully recovered!!! (#DeesNGApick)

This year’s early top 10

1. Harley Reid 186cm Utility (Bendigo Pioneers)
2. Jed Walter 194cm key position forward (Suns Academy / Allies)
3. Daniel Curtin - 195cm key position defender (Claremont)
4. Ashton Moir 186cm forward (Glenelg)
5. Nick Watson 169cm small forward (Eastern Rangers)
6. Zane Duursma 188cm forward (Gippsland Power)
7. Archer Reid 201cm key forward (Gippsland Power)
8. Jack Delean 181cm small forward (South Adelaide)
9. Nathan Philactides 180cm defender (Oakleigh Chargers)
10. Mitchell Edwards 205cm ruckman (Peel Thunder)

I’d definitely have Will Lorenz slotted into this group.  Displayed such skills and decision making.  Love to see him in contention for one of the Dees picks in 2023.

We played Peel pre season and early season and was really impressed with his run and spread to continually be in chains of movement. He then faded a little during the season but I saw him again later and he dominated in a fashion similar to Tom Mitchell just seemed to be everywhere around the ball and in follow up transition, but his disposal let’s him down a little  He had a really good finals series on what I saw, but that wasn’t live.

Endurance IMO really developed during the season and if he takes that up another level along with his size, burst from stoppages, ability to find the footy he will be a decent player who attracts attention. I think he will need to clean up his foot skills to go in the first two rounds

Brilliant, thanks @Pennant St Dee!

 He looked good (potential top 25, 2023 draft) in the champs which is all I've seen of him playing as wingman.  He's the son of Derek Hall (doesn't qualify for Father/son) who was a handy forward for Geelong and played a game or two for West Coast.

Correct, missed through injury.  Club is tracking him closely.

Harley Reid - needs no introduction

Darcy Wilson - skilful mid

Zane Duursman - my number one pick, forward/mid- in the game bailey humphrey re-emerged Duursma was BOG by a space.

Patrick Hughes - quality midfielder

Archer Reid - very promising key forward 

Joe Pike - promising ruck 

are al names to lock in as possible top 25s

A Smokey to watch rise from WA is Jett Sibosado who comes from Broome, he’s been boarding at Scotch College for last 4 years and is a good talent. Played in the last 2 Alcock Cup winning seasons for Scotch as a Yr 10 and 11. Colts player at Claremont around the 182cm 70kg mark. Good skills, composed in traffic and has a tendency to sit on opposition players heads. Freo Next Gen player

So we have one player in the Metro side tied to us as a father-son who will cost draft points if we select him early and another in the Country side who we can only draft if he is not picked inside the top 40. The worse they perform the better it is for us and the best thing to do is hide them away. We can't do that if they make these representative sides though, can we?

This article seems to suggest that Riak Andrew is tied to Essendon's NGA?

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were.
