Pretty fair proportion of our draft picks in recent years
I've always preferred WA kids to SA kids.
The ones that came out in the 80's were Unbelievable

Did I see the kid Toomey has on a HFF in his draft team,

Tyler Sonsie,

playing Richmond VFL?
I knew a Steve Sonsie many years ago in the outer east. I wonder if there is any blood tie there?

He was one of the fitness instructors at the gym i went to, along with one of my older brothers and Peter Cameron the umpire.

Steve was a fitness fanatic, but a real different cat. I was late teens, he would have been mid 30's or older. Was big into martial arts, used to hear stories that he was living in a bush hut surviving off nature (i think karate chopping the odd possum) between meditating and having outer body experiences! Possibly was surviving on mushrooms as well, those pretty couloured ones maybe!

Watched South Adelaide v Glenelg final tonight. Sam Durdin (Glenelg) and Sam Skinner (SA) are both what the modern defence game desire, the intercepting KPD.

Mathew Allan (Glenelg) started poorly but was BOG as the tall (193cm but not KP) backman, hard running off the back line, lovely left foot kick (despite his first 2 kicks missing their targets)

Hayden Sampson, son of former Tiger legend Clay, was explosive, think Castagna but with more control.

Durdin was highly regarded as a junior , maybe a few injuries and been at Norf stuffed him ?

The new Taz would have a great knowledge of the lad

Gave up watching the South Freo v Claremont final in the WAFL, very ordinary game.

8 years after his draft year (2013) James Tsitas has won the Margarey medal with Bryce Gibbs.

The WAFL GF has fizzed out but no. 42 for South Fremantle , Luke McQuilkin, looked to have, as the saying goes, AFL traits.

“TO highlight what a quality WAFL season we had in 2021 all you have to do is look at the fact that Leigh Kitchin, Haiden Schloithe, Bailey Rogers, Aaron Black, Frank Anderson, Kyle Baskerville, Christian Ameduri, Tyrone Thorne, Corey Byrne and Kieran Hug are the fairest and best winners.

Every club has now held its season-end awards for the 2021 Optus WAFL Premiership Season and it's a star-studded group of winners who took out the respective fairest and best awards across the board.

Among the group of 10 players who won their respective club champion award, there are three Sandover Medallists, six members of the WAFL Team of the Year and plenty more accolades that they have all accumulated.

Just to highlight how strong of a group of winners there was, the runner-up place getters across the clubs included Greg Clark, Tom Blechynden, Jye Bolton, Tyler Keitel, Sam Fisher, Matthew Jupp, Angus Scott, Ben Hancock and Michael Sinclair.”

A bad draft for the state leaguers with just 2 getting drafted, Garrett McDonagh and Greg Clark. Usually as a rough average it's about 10% but this one was about 3%.
