We’re sorry, this service is currently unavailable. Please try again later.
Jesse Motlop, son of former AFL player Daniel Motlop who played for North Melbourne and Port Adelaide, is joining the Blues after impressing in Northern Territory and the WAFL this year.
He is a small forward and after playing 30 games in the past year, could be in line to play for the Blues early in 2022.
Midfielder Connor Macdonald will join the Hawks after a strong year in school football and NAB League football.
Macdonald is praised for keeping his feet and having a high IQ for playing the game.
Another Geelong pick, another Geelong Falcon.
Tall midfielder Mitchell Knevitt will stay in the Geelong and join the Cats with the blond ball-winner following Toby Conway to the Cats.
The Cats have kept things in the region taking Geelong Falcons ruckman Toby Conway with the 24th pick.
Conway is said to be the best ruckman in this year’s class and could be a win for the Cats both on and off the field.
Midfield-forward Sam Butler will join Hawthorn, Butler is the brother of St Kilda player Dan Butler.
He told Fox Footy he is grateful for the opportunity and can’t wait to get into training with the Hawks.
Sam said his brother had been his main role model, Dan joked that he looked forward to ‘smashing’ his little brother if the two of them play against each other next season.
Butler was the fourth Greater Western Victoria Rebels player taken so far in this year’s draft.
Kangaroos draftee Josh Goater says he can’t wait to join the team he has supported his whole life.
Goater said it was difficult not hearing his name in the first round but that disappointment was worth it.
Goater also told Fox Footy it is his high school graduation event tonight and he is going to head over there now after watching the draft at home with his family.
Line-breaking midfielder Josh Goater is heading to North Melbourne after they used the 22nd pick on him. He can play across several positions according to Kevin Sheehan.
Midfielder Matthew Johnson is staying home in WA and heading to the Dockers. There was a little surprise when he didn’t go in the first round but it has proven a win for him as he stays home.
He is described as having one of the best kicks of the football in this year’s draft.
Former North Melbourne coach turned AFL football general manager Brad Scott has opened proceedings and put Fremantle on the clock for pick 21.
The TV coverage starts at 7pm AEDT, hopefully pick 21 comes around pretty soon after the broadcast begins as the Dockers look like they haven’t left their seats since last night.
