I hope he gets a good run in the seniors because he might be required in September

I have no insight into lions academy,

But they cant pick them all.

Theyde rank them based on list needs

And if a bid comes earlier, they wave goodbye.

Part of the role of the northern academys is slightly misunderstood in that they are designed to produce footballers for the AFL, not necessarily the clubs.

Hence why they are heavily subsidised.

To illustrate this, AFL Queenslands website has 'Will Martyn debut' as its headline today

They're designed to produce top 10 picks at a discount for the expansion clubs, and after that, whatever happens happens.

Have always loved the way this guy plays. Thought he'd get his chance sooner than later and I think he'll acquit himself well tonight.

Not one to criticise the MC, however Martyn looked miles off in awareness, looked like a kid who simply needs more time in the VFL and build to AFL level

Such a tough game to debut in. Yes, not ready, but I hope it doesn't sap his confidence to try to get to the level needed.
