Five Selected to Join the AFL Combine7th September, 2020
The YJFL would like to congratulate the five former Yarra League players for being selected to join the 2020 AFL Draft Combine.
In a year of cancellations and unfortunate events the NAB League for the boys was unable to get underway leaving a huge pool of talent without a competition to showcase themselves. However, the AFL has still produced their list of invitees to attend the Draft Combine in 2020.
As talents couldn’t be chosen by their 2020 performances, NAB League coaches were asked to submit their list of preferred choices. Those players who also competed in the NAB AFL Academy at under-17s level last year, and those who played in the 2019 Grand Final day All Stars match, were an automatic inclusion.
Five players who formally played in the YJFL have been chosen to attend the combine. We would like to congratulate:
|Player||YJFL Club||NAB League Club|
|Bailey Laurie||Beverley Hills||Oakleigh Chargers|
|Finlay Macrae||Kew Rovers||Oakleigh Chargers|
|Liam Kolar||St Mary’s||Northern Knights|
|Reef McInnes||Canterbury, Boroondara, Surrey Park||Oakleigh Chargers|
|Will Phillips||Beverley Hills||Oakleigh Chargers|
Victorian Combine dates and venue are yet to be determined.
