    If I forget to check the squad, in the meantime the first under 16 Vic Metro game is in a month. Will hopefully see Libba & Kellett in the squad when it's announced.

    Yep, local rag says:

    " Fellow forward Buku Khamis, who moved from South Sudan to Australia just over a decade ago, has been named in his teamís best the past three games and has seven goals to his name this year.

    Khamis moves well, boasts a good vertical jump and is a strong mark."

    When it comes to Next Gen players, the less exposure the better but good to see he has enough talent to be named in the initial squad.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Full metro list here:

    https://www.afldraftcentral.com.au/tag/buku-khamis/

    " 38 Buku Khamis – Provided a strong, leading target up forward. Was able to take multiple strong contested marks and was generally good at following the ball up if it came to ground. Very strong left foot kick for goal, on the run or set shot. Seem to also read the play well with solid leading patterns. "

    Steve Wallis, legend, is in the coaching set up for Metro. I hope he's conservative if West or Khamis have general soreness...

    SBS video and story of Buuks:

    http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2...aking-his-mark

    Already 188cm & 81kg as a bottom age player. Seems to move well, and neat kicking action, obviously athletic.

    Watch this space I guess as Simon Dalrymple has said he's very likely to train with us later this year (preseason training).

    What's the deal with us (and not GWS) drafting one of our next Gen listed players?
