AFL All Australian YJFL Selections

25th September, 2020

In Wednesday night’s AFL All Australian reveal, the YJFL had four former players successfully cement their spots in the team.

In a hotly talked about team selection, four stars of the game were rewarded with their great seasons with a spot on the team.

Christian Petracca, formally of Beverley Hills was selected as ruck rover. A great year for Christian culminated in Melbourne’s Best and Fairest Award and his first selection in the All Australian line up. At 24 years old, Christian had a huge impact in the midfield in 2020 and could also flex his powers up forward.
