Team of the Week: NAB League Boys – Round 14

IMPORTANT wins to Gippsland Power and Northern Knights have earned the sides three players each in our Draft Central NAB League Boys Team of the Week for Round 14. The spread across the 24-player side was even in the round, with just the one player each from Bendigo Pioneers and Geelong Falcons, while each of the other sides had two players apiece fitting into the team. There were a number of unlucky omissions who could not quite squeeze in, with the likes of Miles Bergman, Sam Ramsay and Jeremy Rodi among the most unlucky.

With plenty of Vic Metro and Vic Country players returning to their sides, quite a few have made their way back into our Team of the Week, led by Gippsland Power trio, Brock Smith, Josh Smith and Charlie Comben with the latter two impressive in the air. Also earning three players in the Team of the Week is Northern Knights, with captain Jackson Davies, Draft Central Player of the Week Josh D’Intinosante and midfielder Sam Philp. Their opponents on the day, Murray Bushrangers had two players back in the side with Lachlan Ash and Dylan Clarke both having an impact.

Heading to defence, Trent Bianco makes the side after a massive effort for Oakleigh Chargers, joined in the team by draft bolter Cooper Sharman who booted four goals in the tight win over Eastern Ranges. Eastern had two players in the side as well with midfielder Lachlan Stapleton and defender, Mihaele Zalac both impressing. Earlier in the day, Tasmanian defensive duo Matt McGuinness and Jake Steele kept their side in the contest against the Power and earned spots in our Team of the Week.

Also in defence is Angus Hanrahan who played possibly his best game at the level coming off half-back, in the side with key position utility and Vic Metro Most Valuable Player (MVP) Fischer McAsey who booted three goals in the win over Dandenong Stingrays. Hayden Young was back to his best for the Stingrays trying to will his side over the line and makes the team, while Bailey Schmidt was terrific through the ruck. Up at MARS Stadium, Mitch Martin showed class to boot two goals and make the side once again, along with teammate Cooper Craig-Peters. Charlie Sprague continued his consistent season with three goals in a losing Geelong Falcons outfit.

In the last remaining game, Calder Cannons’ Harrison Minton-Connell and Jake Sutton both slotted into the side after big games in the victory over Bendigo Pioneers, while for the Pioneers, Riley Ironside managed to earn a spot in the 24-player side.
