A detailed assessment of how last year's draft crop and rookies performed in 2017

Pick 15: Jordan Gallucci
Made his AFL debut in the Crows' round nine win against the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba, gathering 11 possessions and kicking a goal. It was his only senior appearance of the season as the midfielder spent the rest of the year in the SANFL where he played 13 games. The Victorian is yet to sign a new contract beyond the end of 2018.

Pick 44: Myles Poholke
Played 16 games in the SANFL alternating between the midfield and half-forward. Has the physical attributes for senior football already, but needs to improve his tank, ball use and defensive responsibilities to take the next step. Rewarded with a two-year extension until the end of 2020.

Pick 51: Elliott Himmelberg
Looks like a solid key position prospect after kicking 19 goals in his 13 games in the SANFL. However, a foot injury...

Cultural diversity celebrations to extend in 2018

The AFL's traditional Multicultural Round will be reformatted in season 2018, with the change allowing clubs to celebrate Australia’s cultural diversity throughout the entire year.

For the last seven years, the Toyota AFL Multicultural Round has traditionally been held in the second half of the Premiership Season with nine clubs hosting themed matches across the course of one round.

AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan said the change from celebrating Australia’s cultural diversity in just one men’s round to across the entire year showcases the league’s commitment in ensuring inclusion lives within all levels of Australian Football.

“Our game has played an important role in highlighting multiculturalism across the country through a dedicated round for the past seven years, however with the inclusion of the NAB AFL Women’s competition this year and with clubs increasingly passionate about promoting...

2018 AFL season fixture revealed

The Gold Coast Suns will host six traditional Victorian teams and local rivals the Brisbane Lions at Metricon Stadium in 2018. 

The 2018 Toyota AFL Premiership Season fixture released on Tuesday sees Geelong, St. Kilda, Richmond, Carlton, Collingwood and Essendon make the trip north, with the latter two falling in school holidays.

Chief Executive Mark Evans said the Suns were delighted with the final fixture in what is undoubtedly a blockbuster second half of the season for the Suns.

“We couldn’t be happier to see six big Victorian clubs come to Metricon Stadium in 2018,” he said.

“Despite an interrupted start to the season due to the Commonwealth Games, we are thrilled to be hosting the calibre of teams we are at Metricon Stadium in the second half of the season.

“Our first game back at Metricon Stadium in Round 11 against Geelong will be a huge welcome home party, and the fixture...

SUNS return to Shanghai

The Gold Coast SUNS will return to Shanghai to play Port Adelaide in 2018.

GC SUNS Chief Executive, Mark Evans, said the club was looking forward to returning to Shanghai for the game to be played during the period the club is unable to play home matches at its traditional home ground, Metricon Stadium, because of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

“We are tremendously proud to be representing the Gold Coast in Shanghai once again in 2018,” Evans said.

“While we didn’t reach the level we wanted to on-field last year, the outcomes the game generated for the Gold Coast cannot be underestimated.

“Over the last 12 months we have strengthened our links to the region and with the direct exposure this will generate for the city, we look forward to enhancing the tourism, education and trade & investment opportunities for the broader Gold Coast.

Tomorrow's Heroes: Rayner the game changer

Tomorrow's Heroes: Cameron Rayner AFL.com.au profile the goal-kicking playmaker, who has drawn comparisons with Richmond star Dustin Martin.

It was last year when Cam Rayner first emerged as a likely early pick at the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.

Playing for the Western Jets in the TAC Cup as a 16-year-old, Rayner kicked seven goals against Bendigo and then followed it with five goals against the Calder Cannons. He was put firmly on the radar. 

He hasn't let anyone down since. The 18-year-old was added to the NAB AFL Academy, captained that side earlier this year and has pieced together a brilliant under-18 season that has catapulted him into No.1 pick contention. 

The half-forward/midfielder's trick bag is full: he's clean, tough, can kick on both feet and has a real spring in his legs. In a season where some highly rated players have struggled to piece together good form, Rayner...
