For those interested in who will be the star recruits in 2017 the TAC Cup Grand Final is on Fox Footy tomorrow morning at 11am.

 

Sandringham Dragons v Murray Bushranges.

 

There are 8 probable top 30 picks playing in the game and you'll read a lot about them in the next couple of months.

 

Dragons

5         McGrath (my Rising Star Pick)

8         Taranto

10       Scrimshaw

11       Brayshaw

13       Florent

 

Bushrangers

7        Brodie

20      Sproule

40      Marshall

 

Should be a cracking game.  Dragons are a very disciplined and tight team.  Bushrangers don't get the same chances to train together and so rely more on individual brilliance.

 

Dragons finished 5th and have knocked over the top 2 teams Dandenong and Geelong in the finals.  Having all their private school players back makes a huge difference.

 

Bushrangers thrashed the heavily favoured  Oakleigh last week.  Like the Dragons the Oakleigh was bolstered by all of their privates but just didn't click against a very strong opposition.

 

The footage will be up on the TAC website next week and well worth a look if you haven't got Fox.

Only intelligent people who know my junior football prowess is without peer.

 

You will notice my Rising Star nomination was BoG today on the big stage and is the likely No.1 draft pick.

Only out of pity, who in your family played for The Dragons, no names please, was it a grandson, nephew, sperm donation?

Stepson is the defence coach and had the best record in the comp for the year.

 

Helps when he has McGrath running off halfback.

 

As distinct from myself he is highly regarded in Melbourne football.  Especially in player development.

 

Grandson #1 played for the Dragons 3 years ago but was too small to get noticed.  You have to be very special like Charlie Spargo (son of Paul) to make it.  Charlie was underage this year and sure to go first round next year.

So, going into the draft period, can someone out there who knows about these things, tell me how good/bad was the Lions trading pre-draft.

 

I've heard of Hanley gone, Frost in and then just draft picks either way in various trade deals. Have the Lions done ok? Or not so good? They seem to be concentrating on getting some high draft picks this year and next year.

 

What's the general feeling? And is the new coach highly regarded? another Hawks assistant wasn't he?

I am just hoping its a really deep draft since we are probably going to have the last 4 or 5 picks or something very close to that.

Lots of obvious talent in the first 2 rounds.  Will not take long for teams to nominate their choices.  After that it gets down to how good your recruiting staff are.

That was a long time ago and the systems in place now don't miss talent very often.  There are so many full time recruiters now that smokies in the 5th round are rare.  Clubs are adopting "Moneyball" strategies to seek players with specific skills.  Bluey from the bush doesn't suddenly appear.

Fevola was a late pick because of character concerns not because of a lack of talent.  I am sure most if not all clubs thought he had the capacity to be a star player.

 

Clubs saw him as being a serious risk, which ultimately he turned out to be.  He featured in a TV show about his draft year and I recall that he and his mum worried about him getting picked up.
