With main goal threats Jake Stringer and Joe Daniher missing, David Zaharakis finding his AFL scoring form against North Melbourne was timely for Essendon.
The 2019 AFL draft gets underway tonight and if you, like us, can’t tell your Matt Rowells from your Noah Andersons – we’ve got you covered with a special AFL draft preview.
We were joined in studio on the Game of Codes podcast by Roar AFL expert and editor Josh Elliott to look at where the dominoes will fall as the next crop of young players makes the transition to an AFL list.
Is there any chance the Gold Coast Suns drop a bombshell and don’t take Rowell and Anderson with the first two picks? Is GWS academy player Tom Green worth all the bits and pieces the Giants have moved to land him? Who are the next-best players up for grabs outside the consensus top two? Who are the potential bolters who could slide into the second or third rounds? Are there any highly-touted youngsters with question marks that should concern recruiters?
Join us on the Game of Codes podcast as we try to tackle all those questions.
