SANFL Player Focus – Max Michalanney (Norwood)

HIS name is familiar with those who follow and love SANFL footy, but Norwood‘s Max Michalanney is paving his own path. The tall defender, son of 211-game Redleg Jim, is eligible to be taken by Adelaide under father-son rules and has already spent time training with the Crows during preseason. Last year, Michalanney was named […]

WAFLW Player Focus: Sasha Goranova (Claremont)

WESTERN Australia had four mature-age AFLW Draft Combine invitees in 2022, with Claremont boasting three of them, including midfielder Sasha Goranova. Nicknamed “The Russian”, Goranova was one of two players – along with Jess Low – who trained with West Coast in 2021 as potential train-ons to fill a role with the Eagles’ growing injury […]

VFLW Player Focus – Grace Buchan (Southern Saints)

SOUTHERN Saints defender Grace Buchan has been around the VFLW system for a while, but for one reason or another has never made it onto an AFLW list yet. Flying under the radar a bit, she is the kind of hardworking defender that just gets the job done, just like she did on the weekend […]

WAFL Player Focus – Darcy Jones (Swan Districts)

SWAN Districts pocket rocket Darcy Jones has been a shining light for the reigning WAFL Colts premiers across five games in 2022, catching the eye with his line-breaking speed and creativity. The 175cm talent was part of the Black Ducks’ 2021 flag-winning side, and caught the eye as a member of Western Australia’s representative setup. […]

VFLW Player Focus – Sarah King (Collingwood)

ONCE known for her entertaining dance skills on the mark, Collingwood’s Sarah King is known for more than that now. Although she did not have too many touches in her side’s win over Port Melbourne on the weekend, she was effective in other ways and showed something that does not happen too often in football […]

VFLW Player Focus: Sam Johnson (Casey)

CASEY Demons captain Samantha Johnson is the pivotal part of a side that is charging towards another finals berth in the VFL Women’s. She had another great game on the weekend, as her side comprehensively beat Port Melbourne by 56 points. Her efforts in that match are our Player Focus for the round. Final stats […]

WAFLW Player Focus: Georgie Cleaver (East Fremantle)

WESTERN Australia’s sole bottom-age AFLW Academy member, Georgie Cleaver is a high ceiling tall with plenty of exciting traits to make her a highly-touted prospect coming into her top-age year next year. The East Fremantle forward-ruck splits her time between football and netball at the national level, having only been able to play one AFLW […]

2022 State Game Player Focus: Josh Carmichael (SANFL)

SOUTH Australia took home the Haydn Bunton Cup on Sunday afternoon, raiding Optus Stadium to defeat Western Australia by four points in a tense edition of the annual state game. With the AFL mid-season draft fast approaching, there were plenty of mature-age prospects who boosted their chances of a top flight call-up. Among them was […]

WAFL Player Focus: Steely Green (South Fremantle)

EVERYONE loves a bolter, and West Australian Steely Green is a draft prospect putting his name up for that title early in the piece. Having earned the opportunity to undertake a senior preseason, the 18-year-old slotted straight into South Fremantle’s League side and has not looked out of place in his three games thus far. […]

SANFL Player Focus: Jaiden Magor (South Adelaide)

POWERFUL inside ball winners are often some of the best watches for neutral fans, and South Adelaide prospect Jaiden Magor is trending as one of them. The midfielder-forward has started his top-age campaign strongly in the Panthers’ Under 18s side, and produced season-high numbers in his latest outing on Saturday. Despite his side going down […]
