South Australian College football prepares for revamp

A TRADITIONAL football system is getting a revamp, with the Adelaide College football turning to a multi-tier system involving promotion and relegation, and we look at how it works, what it means and how the College football and State league can work together for the best possible results.

College football has a long and proud tradition in Adelaide, in fact next year, two of the oldest colleges, Prince Alfred College (PAC) and St Peters will play in their 150th annual Intercol, and in 2017, Sacred Heart and Rostrevor College completed their 95th year of Intercol competing. This tradition has resulted in an agreement with the SANFL that prioritizes a player to be allowed to play for their College side over their South Australia National Football League (SANFL) side. In almost all cases players named in an SANFL league team are released for SANFL duty.

The SA College system has a long production line of AFL Players with some recent draftees since 2014 including:

For PAC: Zac Bailey, Mitch Crowden, Aaron Francis, Riley Bonner, Cam Hewett, Harrison Wigg. 
Sacred Heart: Charlie Ballard, Mitchell Hinge, Liam Mackie, Alex Neal-Bullen, Keenan Ramsey, Cory Gregson, Ryan Burton.
St Peters: Will Hayward, Matt Allen
Rostrevor: Darcy Fogarty, Harry Petty, Toby Pink
Also from other colleges include Callum Coleman-Jones, Andrew McPherson, Lewis Young, Luke Partington and Stefan Giro.

The talent at College football is deep and keeping tabs and reporting on the performances of those players important.

2018 College Football System 

The 2018 season will see SA College football have a revamp, culminating in a new system of promotion and relegation with a top level Premier League and a north and south Championship League. It is a bit complex, but here is how it will work for 2018:

Stage 1:  The Premier division will start with six teams: PAC, Sacred Heart, Rostrevor, St Peters, Immanuel and St Michaels. There will then be a Championship North conference: Trinity, St Ignatius, Westminster, Blackfriars, Marryatville and PAC 2.  The Championship South conference will include: Scotch, Mercedes, CBC, Pembroke, Adelaide High and Sacred Heart 2.  Stage 1 games will involve all schools in their respective grades playing each other once. At which point re-grading will take place. 

Stage 2:  The bottom two Premier League teams will be relegated to the Championship league. The top team in the North and South Conference will be promoted to the Premier League.  Also the next 12 teams will then be regraded into two further divisions of 6 to allow hopefully all schools to be more evenly matched for Stage 2 of the season.
Stage 2 will see each team play each other again for the premiership in each division.

Finals: In the Premier League the top team will go straight into the State Championship grand final, with the second placed team to play a preliminary final against the highest ranked State school.  So in 2017 Sacred Heart was defeated by Henley High in the preliminary final, then with Henley going into the Grand Final against PAC, resulting in victory to PAC in a thrilling contest.

So during the season the typical under 18 draftable college player will play five to six SANFL games, then start College football for five games, then two to three back in the SANFL during school holidays, and then another five to six College games, before SANFL finals kick in.

SANFL vs College Football 

Whilst there is a peace between the SANFL and the College System, there is always some debate about the merits of College football, as compared to the development and recognised elite pathway through the SANFL.  However those in the College system will argue that College footy presents those players with a pure football experience, focused on team and character rather than individual performance and stats, as well as the opportunity to still play SANFL, and exposure to a college education.

Many country-based players are given this option to board at a city-based college and this gives them the opportunity to play all forms, whereas otherwise a seven0hour round trip for a Lucindale-based player such as Darcy Fogarty, may not be feasible.  It should also be noted that the College teams are now often coached by ex-AFL/SANFL players and have support structures similar to SANFL clubs.  In 2017 College coaches included ex-AFL/SANFL players and coaches in Martin McKinnon, Jon Symonds, Steve Symonds, Brett Chalmers, Darren Trevena, and Andrew McLeod

Those in the SANFL may well argue that by doing both you do not promote yourself as best you can.  An interesting outcome of College football is that there is no Champion Data on games and generally these games are not videoed.  So it is quite common to see a bunch of recruiters at these College games, tracking the performances of these potential AFL players. Whilst the best players will go through, there are also the fringe players who do not get through because AFL teams haven’t got enough data to make that call. 

This is an interesting debate. An example from last year involves a player not getting selected for SANFL Under 18 games, but playing College football. Recruiters attending college games noticed this player and upon noting his lack of SANFL games, questioned the club and he was subsequently selected in his SANFL Under 18s club game where he had some excellent performances. After this he was  invited to the SA State based AFL Combine and ended up playing in a SANFL reserves final.  And he met with a number of AFL clubs. This player was not subsequently drafted.  Feedback was positive, “we liked what we saw, just didn’t see enough”, and encouraging for future years. Did College football help this player get noticed? Absolutely.  Did SANFL footy help this player? Not to start with and then absolutely. There are pros and cons to both systems and many examples both ways of the benefits if the AFL path is what you want.

A perfect example of where school football and a state development league did work out however, was Sandringham Dragons’ Nathan Murphy, who missed out on being picked for the Dragons initially, and then after some superb form in the APS competition, made it onto the Dragons list mid-season and by the end of the year, had found a home in the AFL, selected by Collingwood in the National Draft.

But in the meantime, the culmination of a College football year is the end-of-season Intercol game between traditional rivals. An experience not to be missed as player or spectator.  The week of festivities, with thousands watching the game, and the post-match with each team being swamped by hundreds of school mates, presentation of trophies and speeches is AFL Grand Final like – just minus Mr Brightside.

Brisbane searches for inside fix

BRISBANE have the worst contested possession numbers in the competition according to the AFL’s official statistics collector Champion Data.

The Lions currently find themselves sitting on the bottom of the ladder, but have a winnable clash against North Melbourne at the Gabba on Saturday, with a win to see them avoid winning their second wooden spoon.

With Saturday’s clash deciding who will have the number one pick – who could Brisbane look to recruit in the AFL Draft that will help boost their contested numbers?

Contested footy explained, as per Champion Data statistics. Photo: Sam Landsberger/Twitter

Speaking on the Herald Sun and Champion Data’s Podcast ‘The Drill’, Champion Data’s Daniel Hoyne revealed that Champion Data numbers rank the Brisbane Lions in the bottom four in all key contested footy numbers. There are eight to nine elements that make up the contested possession total number, including contested marks and some free kicks.

Contested possessions: 

Throughout the NAB AFL Under 18 Championships, 22 players had over 50 per cent of their total possessions in the contest, with Allies tall forward Hugh Dixon leading the competition with 67.4 per cent (of players who played two or more games). Dixon’s numbers are helped with his high number of contested marks and it’s a reason why many tall players such as Oscar Allen, Sam Hayes and Callum Coleman-Jones feature in the top 22.

The list also includes possible number one draft picks Paddy Dow and Cameron Rayner – with the Lions possibly landing one of the duo at the end of the season.

With the Lions set to pick up Jack Payne by matching a likely bid in the third or fourth round on draft night, key position players aren’t probably at the top of the Brisbane Lions draft rankings.

22 players had 50 per cent+ contested possession percentage in the Under 18 Championships. (Minimum two games).

Geelong Falcons midfielders Cassidy Parish and James Worpel are two of the best contested ball winners in the TAC Cup. Parish’s average of 14.4 contested possessions per game puts him in the top group of contested players – while teammate Worpel isn’t far behind with 11.5.

Hunter Clark (13.4 contested possessions) and Jack Higgins (10.9 contested possessions) are two others who are high in the TAC Cup contested possession winners – with the pair likely to come into consideration for Brisbane’s first round pick that is tied to Port Adelaide’s finishing position.

Vic Metro and Eastern Ranges midfielder Dylan Moore is another name who the Lions will no doubt have in their minds, with Moore averaging 14 contested possessions in six TAC Cup games this season.

In the AFL, the Brisbane Lions are -236 in ground ball gets. Put simply – ground ball is a 50/50 contested at ground level.

Throughout the NAB AFL Under 18 Championships, Moore’s ground ball numbers were exceptionally high – including a game-high 13 GH against Western Australia in Vic Metro’s opening game.

The four contenders for Brisbane’s first pick: 

The four most likely contenders for the number one pick.

Each category has been ranked, with green being the best, yellow the second best, white third & red in four position. In the case of a category being equal, the most relevant category has been chosen. 

Vic Metro midfielder Adam Cerra is out for the season after having shoulder injury, while Vic Country’s Paddy Dow may face surgery after a shoulder injury last weekend in the Pioneers loss.

Dow accumulated 35 disposals (21 contested), seven inside 50s, six clearances and booted two goals against Gippsland Power.

Luke Davies-Uniacke was a favourite for the number one pick early in the season after an outstanding NAB AFL Academy game against the Northern Blues. Davies-Uniacke also blitzed the first half of the APS season.

Cameron Rayner plays like Christian Petracca and Robbie Gray – and there’s no doubt he is an exciting footballer to watch. While his endurance is an area of improvement, he can simply do things that no other players can do in this draft pool.

It’s a tough decision for the Lions – and whether they finish 18th or 17th will affect who they may select. But all four players have their areas of strength as the above table suggests – and you could make a case that you couldn’t lose with any of the four.

But again we come back to the whole point of this article – that Brisbane are ranked 18th in contested footy. And if you’re purely basing the selection off the stats from the NAB AFL Under 18 Championships, Dow comes out on top over Rayner.

Paddy Dow – 61.3%
Cam Rayner – 59.2%

SANFL Round 15 Part 2 Draft Prospects update

AFL Draft Central South Australian correspondent David Chapman cast his eyes over the top young prospects coming up through the SANFL, Reserves, Under 18s and local school football competitions. An extended Round 15 SANFL continued with limited league and reserves games as well as school football, but no under 18s. So we look at the top performances across the weekend.

League:
Sturt, West, Glenelg, Eagles and Norwood did not play.

Reserves:
With only two matches this week North defeated Centrals by 39 points. North underagers Boyd Woodcock (20 disposals) and Connor Rozee (12 disposals) were amongst it, Bryce Denham kicked a goal, Daniel Aplin up from the under 18s also had 15 disposals. For Centrals, underager Jackson Hately was second best with 27 disposals including eight marks.

South went down to Port by 58 points. For South, prospect Nathan Kreuger only got the seven disposals, whilst Henry Bruce was consistent again with 19 disposals including six tackles. Also after his six goals last week promoted Nick Steele kicked one goal.

Under 18s:
There were no under 18 SANFL games this weekend.

School Football:
In one of the biggest matches of the year, Sacred Heart played Rostrevor at home in their Annual Intercol. Sacred Heart bounced back to win easily 12.10 (82) to 3.10 (28), with the match being a State Knockout qualifying game the win effectively locks up second spot on the college ladder.

Best players for Sacred Heart included Wilson Otto, Finn Betterman and Charlie Ballard. Draft prospect Ballard playing centre half back and marking anything that came his way. At the other end of the ground for Rostervor Harrison Petty at centre half back was also accumulating the marks for his team. Mihail Lochowiak was also solid for Rossies.

Prince Alfred College (PAC) headed to Immanuel and easily accounted for them with 21.16 (142) to 9.4 (58), which sent PAC straight into the State Championship Grand Final. Best for PAC included Charlie Hay and Kade Chandler. Zac Bailey and Oscar Chapman kicked three goals each. Sam Davis was amongst the best for Immanuel playing in the midfield.
St Peters also defeated St Michaels by 54 points.

Combine Update:

SANFL Round 15 Draft Prospects update

AFL Draft Central South Australian correspondent David Chapman cast his eyes over the top young prospects coming up through the SANFL, Reserves, Under 18s and local school football competitions. On the weekend, round 15 of the SANFL took place with the return of school football. We look at the top performances from the weekend:

League:

Sturt’s Mitch Crowden returned to league level with 11 disposals, including six tackles. For West Adelaide, under-ager Izak Rankine kicked two goals and picked up 13 disposals. Crows’ father/son prospect Jackson Edwards had 17 disposals including eight marks and five tackles for Glenelg in their win over the Crows at Bordertown.

Reserves:

With only two matches this week Sturt got over West Adelaide by 41 points. Jordan Houlahan kicked a goal with his nine disposals and Adam Trenorden had 11 disposals including seven tackles. For West, Jakob Heitmann did not have the impact he would have liked.

The Eagles held off Norwood by nine points with underage key forward Jack Lukosius best on ground with four goals in his 16 disposals (12 of which were contested). Jake Weideman was also amongst the best with 26 disposals and six tackles, as was tall rebounding defender Tom Schmusch with 16 disposals. Also having an impact were Cooper Gaffney (18 disposals) and Isaac Moller with two goals. For Norwood, last week’s U18 MVP nominee and 2016 winner Stefan Giro had 29 disposals, two goals and seven marks to be amongst the best. Along with state representative defender Brodie Carroll with 20 disposals. Isaac Hewson had 12 disposals.

U18s:

With many SANFL players returning to school footy this week we saw some readjustments in team performances. None more so than the South’s 115-point demolition of Norwood. For the Panthers Nick Steele kicked six goals with 10 marks and Darnell Tucker kicked five goals to go with his 23 disposals and five inside 50s with a best on ground performance. Henry Bruce continued his form from the reserves with 26 disposals. Norwood’s Max Joseph was judged best for the Redlegs with 21 disposals and seven tackles.

Eagles defeated Glenelg by 30 points. For the Eagles, Jake Cook was best on ground with 23 disposals, including two goals and 10 tackles, and for the Tigers Xavier Cubillo (23 disposals, one goals) and Brad McCarthy (20 disposals inc 9 defensive and offensive rebounds) got amongst it.

North Adelaide continued their four game winning streak with a 27-point win over Centrals. North was led by over-ager Tom Matsouliadis with 36 disposals, including a goal, nine clearances and six tackles. Frankie Szekely was lively with his 23 disposals five inside 50s and goal. For Centrals, Cooper Dahms was best with 25 disposals including a goal seven clearances and nine tackles.

Sturt returned to winning with a 30-point victory over West Adelaide. Ed Allan returned to dominate at this level with 38 disposals, including a goal and seven marks to be best on ground for Sturt. Tyson Hone (25 disposals) and Tom Welsby (21 disposlas including a goal and seven marks were also amongst the best. For West Adelaide, Josh Smithson was clearly best with 29 disposals(22 of which were contested) three goals, 11 clearances, six inside 50s and nine tackles in a complete performance.

Glenelg’s Darcy Fogarty and Sturt’s Callum Coleman-Jones have been put on ice for the rest of the year with surgery. This goes with Norwood’s Lachie Pascoe and North’s Hugo Barry also out with ACLs.

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN DRAFT DUO OUT FOR THE SEASON

School Footy:

Recruiters were in abundance at the highly anticipated match between powerhouses Prince Alfred College (PAC) and Sacred Heart College in the battle for the State Championships and Messenger Shield. PAC absolutely dominated the game, to win by 69 points, especially with only being allowed 17 players for the last two and a half quarters.

For PAC, all played well, led by captain Cole Gerloff, and Mackenzie Slee rebounding off half back. All-Australian under 18s player Zac Bailey ended up on the pine courtesy of the umpires after a centre tussle. For Hearts, Charlie Ballard was strong early on with his intercept marking across half back, but he too ended up out of the game due to an accidental head clash requiring stitches. Oscar Lovelock was lively and one of the few Sacred Heart players to step up on the big stage.

In the other matches Rostrevor put away Saint Peters by 43 points with under-ager Luke Valente leading the way for Rossies with three goals and 30 plus possessions. Harrison Petty was again strong backing up his State MVP and Combine invite. For Saint Peters, under 16s player Dylan Stephens was best.
In the other game, Immanuel defeated St Michaels by 50 points.

South Australian draft duo put on ice

POTENTIAL top South Australian draft prospects Darcy Fogarty and Callum Coleman-Jones have been ruled out for the season, with the pair both requiring knee surgery.

Fogarty begun the season as a contender for the No.1 pick after showing promise as bottom-ager for South Australia in the 2016 NAB AFL Under 18 Championships, but struggled in the recent carnival which concluded earlier this month.

The Glenelg forward had showed some signs pinch hitting in the midfield and was even trialled in defence, but finished the carnival averaging just 11 disposals at 82 per cent efficiency.

Fogarty carried a small complaint throughout the carnival, but pushed through and the surgery now required on a small meniscus tear will end his season. Fogarty had played for Glenelg Reserves on the weekend, collecting eight disposals and four inside 50s in their 34-point loss to Port Adelaide Magpies.

Recruiters will be left pondering as to where Fogarty’s best position will be at the next level, with 192cm utility yet to find a clear best position throughout his draft year.

Coleman-Jones will also miss the remainder of the season, with the tall undergoing knee surgery to solve a patella issue.

The South Australian Under 18 captain averaged 19 hit outs and 17 disposals during the NAB AFL Under 18 Championships, showing off his strong contested marking ability – averaging two per game.

Coleman-Jones’ superb carnival saw him named in the All-Australian side, playing predominantly as a ruckman who can push forward.

Fogarty and Coleman-Jones were two of eight South Australian’s selected to partake in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft Combine.

2017 NAB AFL Combine invite list

In 2016, Alex Witherden (Brisbane Lions) and Jy Simpkin (North Melbourne) both suffered season ending broken leg injuries in their draft year, with the pair showing good signs in their first season of AFL football.

Victorian cricketer headlines 2017 AFL Draft Combine invites

VICTORIAN Under 19 cricketer Nathan Murphy headlines the 83 players invited to take part in the 2017 AFL Draft Combine.

Murphy has recently turned his focus to football, with the Brighton Grammar student booting 19 goals in the Victorian APS school boy competition as one of the more impressive medium talls in the competition. Murphy was a late addition to the Sandringham Dragons squad, averaging over 22 disposals in his three games, including a three-goal haul against Bendigo Pioneers and the invite to the testing will give clubs an idea regarding his athletic ability after cricket has largely been the focus of the talented teenager.

The AFL Draft Combine is the first sign that their AFL dreams are a step closer to fruition. An invitation to the AFL Draft Combine means that at least four AFL clubs have expressed interest in the player. The AFL Draft Combine is a way for clubs to determine the players’ physical strengths as well as getting one-on-one time through combine interviews.

Vic Metro lead the other Under 18 sides with 29 players selected to take part in October’s National Combine.

Metro won back-to-back titles in the Under 18 Championships, as the clear standout across the carnival.

At the Combine, draftees take on each other in a series of tests that challenge their speed, endurance, reflexes and skills to determine their strengths and weaknesses. Combine results are taken into account by clubs when deciding between players and whether they believe they can take the next step into the AFL.

Possible number one candidates Adam Cerra, Nicholas Coffield, Luke Davies-Uniacke, Paddy Dow and Cameron Rayner will be keen to show off their athletic traits and will be a few players expected to have an important batch of interviews at the Combine.

Larke Medalist Oscar Allen is one of a number of Western Australia players invited.

In sweeping changes to the 2017 format, the Beep test and 3km time trial have been scrapped. The Beep Test has been replaced by the Yo-Yo run, with the AFL and combine sub-committee believing the beep test wasn’t the most accurate measure to predict fitness levels for team sports. The 3km time trial has been cut back to 2km, falling in line with the majority of AFL clubs who use the 2km run in their programs.

The clean hands test and the 30m repeat sprints test have been removed, with more time allocated to club interviews and medical screenings this year.

Possible Collingwood father-son Tyler Brown is one of 10 Eastern Ranges players selected. Brown was overlooked for Vic Metro selection, but has impressed for Marcellin College in AGSV School Football and for the Ranges in the TAC Cup.

Ed Richards is another with Collingwood links, as the son of Kane Richards, whose late father Ron played 143 games for the Pies. Ron Richards’ brother was Collingwood legend Lou.

Richmond father-son prospect Patrick Naish has also been invited, with Naish averaging 21 disposals throughout the NAB AFL Under 18 Championships.

Hugh Dixon is the sole representative from Tasmania, with 11 players selected from the Allies squad.

Adam Sambono (Northern Territory) and Tim Kelly (Western Australia) are the only two mature-agers selected for the combine, with the pair both impressing at NEAFL and WAFL level respectively.

Clubs will now again nominate players for the state combine, which is for players that have at least two clubs that are interested in them. Similar tests are conducted at the state combine.

The National Combine will begin on Tuesday, October 3 and go through to Friday, October 6 and will again be held at Etihad Stadium.

2017 Under 18 All-Australia team announced

THE Under 18 Championships have come and gone, with Vic Metro claiming back-to-back titles after winning three of their four games.

In no surprise, Metro dominate the 23-man squad, headlined by possible no.1 pick Cameron Rayner who is one of nine Metro players included.

West Australia key forward Oscar Allen, the winner of the Larke Medal for the best player in Division 1, was named up forward.

Sydney Swans academy member Nick Blakey won the Hunter Harrison Medal for the best player in the Under 18 Academy Series (Formerly Division 2), but didn’t feature in the 23-man squad.

Vic Metro coach Martin Allison was named as the All-Australia coach, with Western Australia coach Peter Sumich named as his assistant.

DEFENDERS:

Ben Paton
Back pocket (Murray Bushrangers/Vic Country)
19/10/1998 | 185cm | 78kg

Averaged 18 disposals, four marks and four rebound 50s per game playing as a small defender. Uses the ball well by foot and was often tasked with the kick out duties.

Oscar Clavarino
Full back (Dandenong Stingrays/Vic Country)
22/05/1999 | 190cm | 83kg

Has a solid carnival in defence for Vic Country averaging 11 disposals and six marks. Clavarino took the opposition best forward in most games and has had two good seasons in the Under 18 Championships.

Sam Taylor
Back pocket (Swan Districts/Western Australia)
05/05/1999 | 196cm | 85kg

The AFL Academy member played as a lock-down defender who was an unsung hero for WA. Averaged just 11 disposals, but had three rebounds per game pushing his name into draft contention.

Charlie Constable
Half back flank (Sandringham Dragons/Vic Metro)
18/05/1999 | 190cm | 83kg

Constable was one of Vic Metro’s best in the carnival and despite missing out on selection in their first game, managed to average 26 disposals, five marks and three tackles. He announced himself as a genuine top 10 with 31 disposals, six marks and six inside 50s in the ‘Vic derby’ playing in the midfield and across half forward.

Aaron Naughton
Centre half back (Peel Thunder/Western Australia)
30/11/1999 | 194cm | 84kg

Rebounding tall defender who was a good user on his left foot. Naughton took 21 marks for the carnival and was the rock in defence alongside Sam Taylor. Was WAs co-captain alongside Oscar Allen.

Nicholas Coffield
Half back flank (Northern Knights/Vic Metro)
23/10/1999 | 190cm | 83kg

A player who has pushed into top 10 calculations after a strong carnival. Coffield averaged 22 disposals and four marks, rarely looking rushed with ball in hand in the defensive half. One of the better users in the draft by hand and foot.

MIDFIELDERS:

Brayden Crossley
Ruckman (Gold Coast Suns Academy/Allies)
16/08/1999 | 198cm | 105kg

The big Gold Coast Suns Academy ruckman was the MVP for the Allies, averaging 16 disposals and 27 hitouts from his three games. Crossley’s strength in the ruck is obvious and he hasn’t looked out of place in the NEAFL team for the Suns.

Cameron Rayner
Ruck rover (Western Jets/Vic Metro)
21/10/1999 | 187cm | 88kg

One of the players who were stiff not to win the Larke Medal. Rayner averaged 18 disposals (11 contested), four clearances and booted 12 goals in an impressive carnival. Rayner wasn’t afraid to throw out a ‘don’t argue’ to his opponents and had some impressive moments during the carnival.

Paddy Dow
Rover (Bendigo Pioneers/Vic Country)
16/10/1999 | 184cm | 78kg

Showed off his elite speed bursting from the stoppages on multiple occasions, averaging 19 disposals (12 contested) and five clearances in an impressive showing in the midfield. Did his top 10 chances no harm.

Patrick Naish
Wing (Northern Knights/Vic Metro)
15/01/1999 | 180cm | 69kg

The Richmond father-son averaged 21 disposals, five marks and four inside 50s for the carnival and provided run & dash out of defence on multiple occasions for Metro. One of the better players in the ‘Vic derby’ with 24 disposals, nine marks and two goals at Punt Road.

Brayden Ainsworth
Centre (Subiaco/Western Australia)
27/11/1998 | 183cm | 75kg

The inside midfielder won 49% of his possessions in contested situations, averaging 24 disposals and six clearances throughout the carnival. Started the carnival off with a bang, collecting 26 disposals and eight clearances against South Australia in their golden-point victory.

Izak Rankine
Wing (West Adelaide/South Australia)
23/04/2000 | 178cm | 74kg

The small forward caught the eye of the recruiters using his speed and elite side-step to good use. Rankine averaged 19 disposals, four marks and four inside 50s – kicking six goals for the carnival. The bottom-ager is one to watch for the 2018 draft.

FORWARDS:

Zac Bailey
Half forward flank (Southern Districts/Allies)
23/09/1999 | 180cm | 68kg

Bailey has a great burst of speed and the Northern Territory midfielder averaged 17 disposals, four tackles and three clearances per game. Bailey’s burst from the centre bounce to win the final clearance in the last few minutes against Vic Metro was a key reason for their unexpected victory.

Jarrod Brander
Centre half forward (Bendigo Pioneers/Allies)
11/02/1999 | 195cm | 90kg

Spent time at either end throughout the carnival but finished with a breakout 16 disposal, nine marks and three goals game up forward against title winning Vic Metro.

Jack Higgins
Half forward flank (Oakleigh Chargers/Vic Metro)
19/03/1999 | 178cm | 76kg

Higgins was the only player to break the 100 disposal barrier, finishing with 109 disposals (53 contested) in the carnival. Higgins was a deserving MVP for Vic Metro, going close to the Larke Medal. Higgins also averaged six tackles, five clearances and booted six goals for the tournament showing his skill as a player likely to be taken in the backend of the first round.

Callum Coleman-Jones
Forward pocket (Sturt/South Australia)
13/06/1999 | 201cm | 98kg

Coleman-Jones averaged 19 hitouts per game, with a breakout 28 disposal, 15 hitouts and five marks game against the Allies in Round 2. Coleman-Jones is one of the stronger marks in the draft pool.

Oscar Allen
Full forward (West Perth/Western Australia)
19/03/1999 | 191cm | 83kg

The key forward looms as the likely first West Australian prospect drafted. Allen won the Larke Medal as the best player in Division One, booting 11 goals for the carnival. Allen also averaged 15 disposals and six marks, as an overall deserving Larke Medalist.

Dylan Moore
Forward pocket (Eastern Ranges/Vic Metro)
04/08/1999 | 175cm | 66kg

The small midfielder cracked in hard, winning plenty of contested ball, rolling through the Vic Metro centre bounces. Moore had 92 disposals (45 contested) for the carnival and booted three goals.

INTERCHANGE:

Sam Hayes
Interchange (Eastern Ranges/Vic Metro)
09/06/1999 | 203cm | 93kg

The Vic Metro ruckman becomes a dual U18 All-Australian. Hayes averaged 17 hitouts per game and booted four goals up forward. Also took 14 marks for the carnival and showed his versatility up forward.

Lachlan Fogarty
Interchange (Western Jets/Vic Metro)
01/04/1999 | 179cm | 75kg

The half forward/midfielder missed the opening game of the carnival recovering from a groin injury. Fogarty averaged 19 disposals and a goal throughout the championships, using his smarts around the ground.

Harrison Petty
Interchange (Norwood/South Australia)
12/11/1999 | 194cm | 81kg

One of the more impressive players in the carnival, winning the South Australian MVP. Petty averaged 12 disposals and four marks, with his best performance coming against Vic Metro lining up on Will Sutherland with Petty having 18 disposals, seven marks and six inside 50s.

James Worpel
Interchange (Geelong Falcons/Vic Country)
24/01/1999 | 185cm | 84kg

Was the Vic Country MVP averaging 20 disposals (10 contested), four clearances and four inside 50s for the carnival. Was the leading tackler for the carnival with 33 tackles in his four games.

Joel Garner
Interchange (Eastern Ranges/Vic Metro)
21/05/1999 | 183cm | 81kg

The Vic Metro captain had a superb carnival despite battling an ankle injury in their third game. Garner averaged 16 disposals with 48 per cent of these in contested situations. Garner controlled the play in the defensive half, with a standout performance in the ‘Vic derby’ with 24 disposals, nine marks and six rebound 50s.

Scouting notes: South Australia vs. Allies

South Australia claimed their opening win of the NAB AFL Under 18 Championships with a 51-point win over the Allies on Saturday. Led by bottom-agers Jack Lukosius and Jackson Hately, the Croweaters kicked away in the third term with six goals to none to put the result beyond doubt.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA VS. ALLIES MATCH REPORT

David Chapman & Tom Wyman’s scouting notes:

South Australia:

#2 Izak Rankine – One of SA’s bottom-agers and arguably the most exciting of the lot. Not a high production player (15 disposals today), but whenever he got it, something good happened. Showed great speed with a run down tackle on the wing. Is freakishly talented and will feature highly next year.

#3 James Rowe – He’s only 172cm but the son of Stephen displayed some AFL relevant traits today. I liked his footy smarts and awareness whilst being tackled and his disposal by hand, particularly in tight caught the eye. Pushed up into the midfield in the second quarter and found it easily.

#16 Mitch Crowden – After being arguably best on ground last week, Crowden started on the bench and spent a fair bit of time up forward, as well as some cameos in the middle. Took a number of contested marks, and displayed great defensive pressure on a number of occasions including a high speed chase & tackle through the middle that resulted in a turnover and goal. His kicking as usual was highly effective including 4 inside 50s that were deadly.

#17 Brad McCarthy – Thought the strong bodied small defender was one of their best. Was particularly clean below his knees in the second half and foot skills were pretty good. Will be one to look out for in the coming weeks as he has shown promise as a lockdown backman and also in attack. Finished the game with 22 disposals and 7 rebound 50s as well.

#20 Jackson Hately – Was fantastic all day for SA, collecting 27 disposals as a 16-year old. Generally used it well by foot too. Played predominantly on the outside, complementing the handful of strong inside mids. Can see why he was selected as an AFL Academy level one member.

#33 Hugo Barry – In his first game for SA this campaign, Barry started off down back and took a couple of contested defensive marks, and knew when to peel off his player to help out a team mate. Also pushed forward and got his hands to a number of contests and snagged a couple of goals, his agility for a big man is dangerous as his ability to keep his feet. However with a one minute to go, Barry hurt his knee as a result of a marking contest and left the field on a stretcher.

#36 Jack Lukosius – Played forward all day, opposed to Brander for much of it and won that battle pretty comfortably. His work rate was excellent, often presenting up outside of the 50 on the lead. Still slightly built but once he gains a few kilos he will make a very good centre half forward. Foot skills were neat apart from one set-shot miss directly in front. Managed to slot through three majors nevertheless.

#37 Charlie Ballard – Played mainly on the wing with some time also spent up forward. Provided good link play, won contested ball and showed some forward pressure. Memorable moment was a chase down on the wing, made the tackle, kept his feet to recover the loose ball, then delivered with a nice 30m stab pass.

#40 Darcy Fogarty – As was the case last week, the highly touted utility did not find heaps of the ball, finishing with 14 disposals, but made an impact at every contest he attended. You can really feel Fogarty’s presence whenever he’s around the ball. Played forward in the first quarter but moved into the middle as the game went on and did some good things. Did notice he bit off more than he could chew on a couple of occasions.

#49 Callum Coleman-Jones – The skipper was perhaps the most influential player on the ground. Won his fair share of hit outs, finishing with 15, but it was Coleman-Jones’ work around the ground that stood out. As usual he clunked some big marks and collected an impressive 28 touches. As has been alluded to, his kicking action looks awkward and will probably be altered at the next level. Sprayed one out on the full in the first, but was a really good game from CCJ today. Has done enough to suggest he could be drafted in the first couple of rounds come November.

Allies:

#5 Zac Bailey – Bailey played mainly through the midfield, Bailey displayed his explosive clearance work on a number of occasions, but his goal kicking boots must have been at home as he could easily have kicked eight goals. The play of the day was a centre ball clearance at pace, driving hard through 50 with a shot on goal. Did seem to drift at times against the rotating SA midfield but was leading possession winner for the Allies

#10 James Bell – When he managed to get his hands on it, Bell’s pace made him exciting to watch. Found his game similar to Rankine in that he made things happen. Just the 10 touches but was good to see him lay eight tackles. Kicked a goal as well and looks to be the Sydney Swans academy best prospect this year.

#13 Bailey Scott – Coming into the side this week, I really liked the game of bottom-ager Bailey Scott. Kicked two goals in the final term and finished up with 14 disposals, 5 marks, 2 tackles, 7 inside-50’s as well. I’m sure Geelong and North Melbourne will also be looking to secure his services next year through the father-son rule.

#33 Jarrod Brander – Played the first three quarters at centre half back where he had the match up on Lukosius but was beaten. Having said that, he didn’t do a lot wrong when in possession. Had the responsibility of kick in duties down back but was swung forward in the final quarter and made an impact straight away.

#38 Connor Ballenden – Being at the ground, it felt as though the Brisbane Lions academy player was largely ineffective. As usual, Ballenden spent time up forward but also in the ruck where he amassed 18 hit-outs. Not sure where he plays his best footy but Coleman-Jones had the upper hand around the ground.

Western Australia defeat South Australia in extra time in opening Under 18 Championships game

A MATT YOUNG golden point has given Western Australia a remarkable win in the first game of the 2017 NAB AFL Under 18 Championships.

In what was largely a one-sided contest for most of the day with WA leading by 30-points at three quarter time, South Australia fought hard with five scoring shots in the opening six minutes of the final quarter, before Izak Rankine goaled to level the scores at Domain Stadium with a few minutes remaining.

Both sides fought hard, before Western Australia took the ball inside 50 and Matt Young marked, with his kick at goal missing – but securing the golden point to give WA a win by the narrowist of margins.

The home sides attack on the ball carrier was obvious from the get go, laying 19 more tackles than SA throughout the contest, with Callan England laying a team-high seven tackles.

Brayden Ainsworth was West Australia’s best in the final term, fighting hard despite the one way traffic, finishing the game with a game-high 26 disposals and eight clearances.

Bottom age midfielders Tom Joyce (21 disposals, four tackles) and Ian Hill (14 disposals, four tackles) were impressive and will be two likely draftees from the home state in 2018.

Gordon Narrier was important in the opening quarter with seven disposals, working hard on the outside finishing with 15 disposals and seven inside 50s.

AFL Academy member Jake Patmore impacted the game in the third quarter, finishing with 19 disposals and five marks for the day.

Western Australia co-captain Oscar Allen showed some good signs in the opening half, collecting 10 disposals and booting three goals playing at centre half forward, while his other co-captain Aaron Naughton used the ball well coming out of defence on his left foot with 15 disposals and four rebound 50s.

For South Australia, Mitch Crowden was their standout using his bigger body to impose the contest. Crowden collected an equal team-high 23 disposals (10 contested) and the 179cm midfielder impressed all day.

Possible Adelaide father-son prospect Jackson Edwards also had 23 disposals (11 contested) playing through the midfield. Edwards started slowly, but built into the game with a superb last quarter with his seven disposals important in getting the ball forward for South Australia.

Isaac Hewson (22 disposals) and Charlie Ballard (20 disposals) performed well in the midfield, winning the contested ball.

Possible number one draft pick Darcy Fogarty had a quiet game with just 12 disposals, four marks and two first quarter goals for the afternoon.

Bottom ager Izak Rankine kicked two goals for the contest from his 20 disposals, which included seven inside 50s playing in the midfield. Fellow 2018 draft prospect Connor Rozee laid 10 tackles and found the ball on 16 occassions on the outside.

SA tall Callum Coleman-Jones clunked six marks (four contested) and ammassed 22 hit outs in a strong performance mixing between ruck and deep up forward.

Western Australia take on Vic Metro next Sunday at Domain Stadium, while South Australia will host the Allies at Adelaide Oval in a televised Fox Footy game on Saturday.

Under 18 Championships Preview: South Australia

SOUTH AUSTRALIA enters the National Under 18s Championships lacking the star power that both the Victorian sides have. In saying that – they do appear to be a well balanced unit with a large number of prospects who look likely to feature throughout the middle stages of the draft.
SA have a number of excellent ball users, particularly off half-back, grunt in the midfield and some tall timber who are capable of fulfilling key position spots at either end of the ground. This squad is versatile and we can expect to see a number of players being used in a variety of roles. Sturt big man Callum Coleman-Jones will lead the side with Darcy Fogarty and Andrew McPherson named as joint deputies. However. McPherson will miss the opening two games of the Under 18 Championships with a quad injury.
With five level two AFL Academy players in the squad, along with seven level one prospects, perhaps next year will be more fruitful in terms of star talent, but don’t go ruling them out in 2017. Although Vic Metro looked primed to go back-to-back, I think South Australia can realistically mount a push. The battle with Vic Country on July 5th could prove particularly instrumental.
 
Players to watch:
 
Darcy Fogarty – Undoubtedly South Australia’s best draft prospect and he is well in truly in the mix for the number one selection. Despite not starring, Fogarty has been a regular fixture in Glenelg’s senior side and posses the unique ability to be able to cover any position on the field apart from the ruck. He slotted in at half-back in an SA trial match earlier in the season but has also shown serious promise up forward and as an inside midfielder. At 192cm, he could become a third tall forward at AFL level, but I expect him to feature in the guts in the Champs.
Alex Martini – Fogarty’s teammate at Glenelg has also proven himself in the SANFL  League side, having played predominately off half-back. Martini captained Sacred Heart College last year and his on-field leadership will be crucial – He may spend more time in the midfield with the half-back line looking impressive for SA.
Jackson Edwards – The son of Tyson Edwards is a father-son prospect for the Crows and although he is yet to break into the Glenelg league side, he has been solid so far in the Reserves. He has a touch of class about him, much like his father, and will be a vital cog in the on-ball brigade.
Nathan Kreuger – Kreuger has potential to burn and at 194cm – he is one who can hold down a key position at either end and at times has even been deployed as a big-bodied midfielder. Athletic with neat foot skills, I can see Kreuger pushing higher up rankings with a strong National Championships. However he has been left out in Round one and will have to fight to break into their team for their remaining fixtures.
Callum Coleman-Jones – The Key Forward/Ruckman will be eager to assert his authority on the champs. Despite requiring some work on his endurance, Coleman-Jones is a great contested-mark and an imposing figure both in the ruck and when sent forward. Looking forward to his duel with top five candidate Sam Hayes when SA clash with Vic Metro at Etihad Stadium but would prefer to see him at full-forward.
2018 names to keep an eye on:
Jack Lukosius – Lukosius could well be the number one draft pick in 2018. The Woodville-West Torrens star is already lighting it up in the SANFL ranks. Yet another South Australian with the ability to play at either end, Lukosius has excellent mobility for a guy of 193cm and the foot skills of a midfielder.
Izak Rankine –  Rankine has as much talent as any 17 year-old in the country and will strut his stuff up forward and on the wing for South Australia. Possesses good agility and has X-Factor.
Connor Rozee – Won the Kevin Sheehan medal as the best player in the Under 16 carnival and is a classy midfielder on both the inside and outside. Vision is very good in traffic and is a clean user by both hand and foot.

Predictions:

Finishing prediction: 2nd – I doubt South Australia will have the star power to overcome Vic Metro, but wins over Western Australia and the Allies are expected, and if they can account for Vic Country they will be in good shape for a crack at their first title since 2014.

MVP prediction: Darcy Fogarty – There are a number of ‘ready made’ talents in the South Australia squad who have already experienced SANFL Macca’s League football, but Fogarty is at this stage the only out-and-out star in my eyes. He is a real talent with that modern day frame and provides a presence wherever deployed. No doubt he will have learnt from playing against men for the ‘bays’ and will surly be up there on draft night come November. Can push forward and hit the scoreboard.
