Category 1: AFL New Zealand Academy Graduates

Pick 1: Western Crows

Ethan Halton

 

If not him? Luke Williams. The Crows might look at the Howick Hornets rising star.

 

Category 2: Auckland based players

Pick 1: Northern Suns

Jay Green

 

If not him? Patrick Landy. The Sun’s might look to bolster their tall players and after a best on ground performance in the Auckland AFL, Landy could go Pick 1.

 

Category 3: Regional based players

Pick 1: Northern Suns

Jalan Farris

If not him? Paul Hogan. The Eastern Blues fitness machine has a background in Gaelic Football and would add depth to their already exciting retained players list.
