Matt Merlo: The consistent leader

Calder’s Matt Merlo is your uncompromising inside midfielder who is able to do his job every week and compliment the rest of the midfield. He captained the club to a preliminary final and was 20 minutes away from booking a place on the ground for the TAC Cup Grand Final. It wasn’t to be, but […]

No top ten pick? No worries: Hidden gems in the National Draft

Every year the AFL Trade and now Free Agency Period brings a certain sense of excitement amongst AFL clubs and fans. With the season done and dusted, every club goes back to square one in a bid to retain, alter or rejuvenate their list in an attempt to achieve their goals for the following season. […]

2013 Final Under 18s Power Rankings

The 2013 season is finished and this year’s draft crop have completed their testing so their fate is now up to the recruiters, with little for them to do that can change it. This makes it a great time to look back on the season and see who the best 100 players were according to […]

Jason Robinson: The ultimate team man

Jason Robinson is an unassuming, underrated defender from the western suburbs  who doesn’t have the fanfare surrounding him that others might, but instead he goes about his business and achieves the results required of him. “I’ve got plenty of belief in myself and the team with what we’re trying to do at the Jets.” he […]

Lewis Fitzgerald: The forgotten man

Oakleigh’s midfield is the personification of polish, and Lewis Fitzgerald is certainly no exception. The Vic Metro midfielder stands out from this year’s crop being one of the only tall midfielders who can provide silky 55 metre passes into the forward 50. Fresh off a 13.4 beep test at the state combine, Fitzgerald joined us […]

Ben Cavarra: An underrated champion

Premiership captain. TAC Cup medal winner for best-on-ground in a grand final. Vic Metro representative. Tied Morrish Medal winner for the TAC Cup’s Best and Fairest. Likely Eastern Ranges Best and Fairest winner. Usually, winning all of these accolades in a season would point to the player in question having high draft prospects, and being […]

Morrish Medal: Josh Scott, the quiet observer

There’s a lot more to Josh Scott than meets the eye. On face value, the lanky forward from Lakes Entrance seems like your classic knockabout country bloke who loves to have a laugh and get out there and enjoys his football. Yet if you look deeper, Scott is a true student of the game, who […]

Morrish Medal: Jacob Chisari, the underdog

With most awards, it is usually for the polished outside midfielder who stands out from the crowd. The Morrish Medal however, rewarded the little guy; the one who physically and metaphorically gets looked over again and again. The one who does all the hard stuff yet the big guys don’t even notice. Well captain of […]

Cam Conlon: The unknown entity

At the beginning of the year, the Northern Knights looked as though they had the answer to Tom Boyd in Cam Conlon. The Herald Sun published an article about him only a few weeks into season 2012, where he had taken the TAC Cup by storm as a 17-year-old. Conlon’s first two weeks his 2012 […]

Under 18s Power Rankings: Key defenders

The season is at the midway point and we are starting to get an idea about who is likely to be drafted this year. We have seen a lot of good performances this year, although it can be hard to tell a good display of talent from the rest. It is very subjective and difficult […]
