Former Juniors Win All Australian Selection

31st August, 2017

 

After standout 2017 seasons, former juniors Tom Mitchell and Michael Hurley have been rewarded with selection in the AFL All Australian team.

Mitchell, in his first season at Hawthorn, racked up impressive stats averaging a touch under 36 possessions per game and over 127 AFL Fantasy points.

Hurley, who returned to AFL football after the fallout of the peptide saga, averaged over 25 possessions per game as well as just under 8 marks per game.

Mitchell was named as an on-baller whilst key defender Hurley was named at centre half back.

Given the high number of ex-juniors currently playing at the highest level, we decided to have a go at our own version of an All Australian team.

How do you think this line-up would go?
