A strong marking key forward out of Central District, Liam Fawcett was earmarked early as a potential AFL Draft prospect after an impressive bottom-age campaign. He kicked 19 goals in 16 games, while averaging 11.6 disposals per match at SANFL Under 18s level. A fearsome aerial figure, Fawcett finished off the 2022 season strongly up forward, kicking 14 goals in the last five games.

Fast forward to 2023, and the Centrals tall truly cemented his place inside attacking 50 with 32 majors in 16 games, also averaging 6.6 marks. His scoring tally included a high of six goals against West Adelaide in Round 7. Fawcett duly received his spot in the state side, where he played a couple of matches, averaging a goal from 6.5 disposals and three marks.

He certainly has the capacity to get a hold of opponents aerially and on the lead, but making them pay on the scoreboard can prove hit or miss. His goal kicking numbers are strong, though could have been even more eye-catching with sharper conversion. At his best, Fawcett can go big and it's a matter of doing so more consistently. As it stands, he looms as a potential rookie candidate.
