Seven to head to the AFL Draft Combine

25th August, 2021

Seven former YJFL players have been invited to the AFL Draft Combine to be held in October.

The Yarra Junior Football League would like to congratulate the seven former players who have been invited to the Combine.

It is an amazing accomplishment to be invited to the Draft Combine and puts the player in the top echelon in this year’s under 18 class.

From a wide arrangement of YJFL clubs the seven players this year will prove their skills, fitness and agility plus much more to try and impress AFL clubs before the National Draft held in November.

The YJFL has had many recent successes in the AFL Draft combine with five invitees in 2020 where four were subsequently drafted to an AFL club.
