    There are kids who simply need help that the state bodies canít provide - so the AFL has given their clubs a bit of incentive, through priority draft access - to get them to help fix it. Now it doesnít really matter how many players each club are eligible to put into their academy...they can all put in 100 for all I care - but they then have to manage those players. So the reality is no matter what access they have, how are they going to manage more than 8-12 and stay within the soft cap?

    The academies are for the players, not for the clubs.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    Just watching the footage of Ugle-Hagen he reminds me a bit of Barry Standfield. The booming kick and learning from mistakes. If Barry missed a set shot from a certain spot then you be sure that the next shot he had from that particular spot would go through at goalpost height. He was a smart player who learned from his mistakes, Let's hope JUH is a similar player to Barry. because Barry was a great swingman who could play in defence and then go forward and snag a couple of goals and then return to defence

    Not exactly father/son - interesting anyhow.

    Finlay Macrae, the younger brother of Western Bulldogs star Jack, was excellent today for Vic Metro in the U17s ‘Futures’ game. Unsurprisingly can find the footy - he had 30+ disposals and a goal. Some good signs for him ahead of 2020 draft.
